LaVern Joseph, son of John F. and Linda Mae (Thelen), Hoffmann, was born July 16, 1948 in Carroll, Iowa. He attended St. Ann School in Vail for two years and then Grant #5 for 15 years. After that he went to the Glenwood State School until 1977 when he became one of the first residents of New Hope Village in Carroll. LaVern was a member of Holy Spirit Parish in Carroll.
