LaVina Copeland, age 56, passed away November 4, 2017

LaVina Lin Patry Copeland, age 56, of Roosevelt, passed away November 4, 2017, at her home after a battle with cancer.

She was born February 1, 1961, in Roosevelt, to Max James and Patsy Lee Atwood Patry.

LaVina worked for Burdick Construction for over 14 years. She was a hard worker and enjoyed her job, especially learning and running machinery on the road crew. She loved the outdoors, long drives in the mountains with her dog, fishing, family and children.

She searched out and found her brothers and sisters from her biological father, Robert Franklin, and was a key factor in keeping them in touch.

LaVina is survived by her children, April Cossette (Robert Kanzee), John Copeland, Levi Copeland; granddaughter, Ember Kanzee; parents, Pat & Max Patry; all of Roosevelt; brothers and sisters, Tim & Jim Patry, both of Roosevelt; David Woolery, John Woolery, Robert Woolery, Lonnie (Deyo) Franklin, Melissa Franklin, Roni (Bobby) Watts, all of Wyoming; Michelle Kravitz, Maine; and Jodi Estes, Texas.

She was preceded in death by her sweet heart, Paul Tabbee, birth father, Robert Franklin; brother, John Franklin; a sister, Bobby Franklin; and a niece, Rachael Patry.

A Memorial Graveside will be held on Wednesday, November 15, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. at the Roosevelt Memorial Park. Condolences may be shared at
