Verna was one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and was baptized on January 27, 1979. She firmly believed in God’s Kingdom and how it will bring an end to all of mankind’s problems and suffering, including death. She looked forward to the resurrection of the dead and she knew that her God, Jehovah, would remember her and reunite her with all of her family and friends again on a paradise earth.

Besides her God, her family and her friends, she loved flowers, jewelry making, coloring and playing games. Her kind and sweet demeanor, generous and loving heart, unbelievable strength, faith and loyalty will be missed by all who knew her.

Her family offers their appreciation and thanks to all who have given their support, prayers and kindness through these difficult times.
