CWO Bass was a very special officer during my reserve duty. She always made sure the females were well outfitted with whatever we needed. She always made me feel like I was special to her. Semper Paratus

I worked with Lavonia at the U. S. Coast Guard In Cleveland. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. She was so nice and always had a smile for everyone. May God comfort you all during this difficult time.

To the Bass family - I'm heartbroken to hear the passing of one of my fellow shipmates, CWO4 Lavonia Bass. I had the pleasure and honor of knowing and serving with her in the early 1980s in Cleveland. She was truly a wonderful person, energetic, and well loved and respected by all. I offer my sincere condolences and prayers to the entire family.

It was such an honor meeting you. May you rest in entire peace and love. To the family : Don’t think of her as gone away Her journey’s just begun, Life holds so many facets This earth is only one. Just think of her as resting From the sorrows and the tears In a place of warmth and comfort Where there are no days and years. Think how she must be wishing That we could know today How nothing but our sadness Can really pass away. And think of her as living In the hearts of those she touched For nothing loved is ever lost And she was loved so much.

Lavonia, Lolly, Queenie, and CWO4 were the titles we knew and respected Lavonia for. She was a great friend, a blast to laugh and joke with, and one of the hardest working, most devoted Coastees that ever served. May she enjoy her well-deserved eternal rest.
