She was preceded in death by her parents, four  brothers, and two sisters.

Verna retired from General Electric after 35 years. Her passion was cooking for people. She was a member of the Waynesville American Legion Post 1189, where she helped prepare many meals.

As a member of Eastview Christian Church and loving her Lord, she was in charge of the funeral dinners for many years. She was fond of antiques and loved to travel.

Verna was like a mother to all, especially to those who attended the annual Colorado elk hunting trip, where she cooked enough meals to feed an army. Most of all, she was an incredible loving wife, mother, and grandmother and enjoyed all the moments that she could spend with her family.

Memorials may be given to Waynesville American Legion Post 1189. Calvert-Johnson & Musselman Memorial Home, in Lexington, is handling arrangements for the family.
