LaVeena Jo Slats came into this word on June 13, 1993, at Providence Hospital to dad, Andrew Buena and mom, Teresa P. Slats. She left us on Nov. 27, 2015. She gave birth to a beautiful girl, Adalina Grace Slats on June 9, 2011. LaVeena shared her energy and wonderful smiles with us all every day. She was the most fun-loving, free-spirited young lady, and she made family and friends feel so much better with her personality and encouraging words. She always had a very special place in her heart for her loving daughter and always was there for her. We are all going to miss her. She leaves us with a void in our lives which God will fill with peace and joy. Her spirit will live with all of us through her wonderful memories that she shared with us all. She was preceded in death by grandparents, Gregory and Monica Slats; uncle, Joseph Slats; and cousin, Melissa Slats. LaVeena leaves her daughter, Adalina; parents, Andrew Bueno, Teresa P. Slats, Ray and Karen Gauthier; her brothers, sisters and many aunts, uncles and cousins in Alaska and California. A visitation will be held 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. Friday, Dec. 4, 2015, at Legacy Funeral Home, Heritage Chapel at Angelus 440 E. Klatt Rd.
