Lavonne Reue

February 23, 1938 — January 4, 2019

Lavonne Miller Reue, age 80, died on January 4, 2019 in Dripping Springs, Texas after battling
many illnesses over 40 years. She was born to the late Paul August and Alexa Lenora
(Werchan) Miller in Marlin, Texas on February 23, 1938. After the death of her father, she
moved with her Mother to Brenham, Tx. and graduated from Brenham High School.
Lavonne met the love her life, Franklin Reue, in Brenham, Tx. They were married on May 25,
1958 and began a marriage that lasted until his untimely death from Leukemia in 1998.
Lavonne and Frank bought a home at 4319 Marlborough in Houston, Tx. in the early 1960’s
where they met neighbors who became life long friends. Lavonne lived there until her declining
health caused her to move to Austin to be near her daughter.
Lavonne began a career with Blue Bell Creameries in 1982 which lasted until her retirement in
2012. Lavonne and Frank were active with their daughters in St. Mark Lutheran Church and
and school. While Lavonne enjoyed her friends and her career with Blue Bell, the true joys of
her life were her daughters, their families and her grandchildren.
Lavonne was preceded in death by her parents, her brothers Clyde James Miller and Gene
Arnold Miller, her husband Frank Reue, and her son in law Craig Miller. She is survived by her
daughters Michele Miller, Kimberly Yadlowsky and her husband Paul, grandchildren Avery
