At the conclusion of the war, La Vone started dating Arnold Satzinger, also a Fairfax High graduate and friend of sister Gloria. They married April 20, 1947, lived briefly in Glendale, then settled in the La Cañada foothills where they raised sons Jim, John and daughter Sue.
La Vone was involved in many social groups both in La Cañada and in Glendale where Arnold was in the insurance business with Lawrence Insurance Agency and later Hayward, Satzinger and Dagneau. Long-lasting friendships came from neighbors on Burgoyne Lane and Princess Anne Road, “Les Amies”, Tuesday Afternoon Club, Kiwanis Club and the Glendale Junior Chamber of Commerce. The Satzingers returned to Glendale in 1965 and settled into the new development of College Hills.
In the late ’60s, La Vone and Arnold leased a beachfront property near Rosarito Beach, Baja California Norte, and spent the next several years building a beach house and entertaining family and friends with oceanfront activities, off-road motorcycling, abalone and lobster feasts, and a margarita or two.
Their involvement in real estate development and construction in Santa Barbara led to a new adventure for La Vone and Arnold. From 1975 through 1983, co-captained by son John, they explored the Santa Barbara Channel from a sailboat moored in Santa Barbara; and later continued to entertain friends and family on a motor yacht moored in Ventura, where Arnold would spend his last day Oct. 9, 1983.
