LaVina was born on December 8, 1926 in Buckner, MO to Walter and Pearl (Ames) Armbruster. In 1946 she married Frank A. McMillan. Immediately following high school, she had a passion for teaching.

Her teaching career began at Peacedale School in northeast Jackson County, Missouri State School, then eventually she retired from the Blue Springs School District. In her spare time, LaVina enjoyed gardening, feeding birds on her property, and traveling – especially to Hawaii. Most of all she loved spending time with her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren.
