Sorry to see the passing of Aunt Verne. I have many fond memories from the farm in Crivitz in the 50's, to our visit to their home in Galveston in the 70's, to her "pop up" visits to our home in Hawaii in the 80's. A wonderful lady who we will always remember. Doug & Janel McGinley

Aunt Verne. You were indeed a social butterfly. There was not one person you didn't find the time to talk to. You always had such amazing stories to tell. You wore a smile on your face no matter what troubles you carried on your shoulders. The world will certainly miss you and heaven is belated with another angel from our family. Rest in Prace surrounded by your brothers and sisters who have gone before you. We will miss you.

My sincere sympathy to my cousins Steve and Debbie and their families. Your mother was a sweet lady and so happy I could call her my Aunt. She truly had a love for her brothers and sisters and all her family. She was a happy spirit and looked for the good in everyone. May angels walk with you on your journey through this loss. Love, Margaret and family.

Deb, just saw this in the paper. I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom always took good care of me. When I first started living on my own she would come by "Bayou Shore Apts" and bring me care packages. She took me to find that apartment. I will always have the best of memories with her.Remember the night she was outside waiting for you, Cathy, and I to get home. I think it was around 3AM....we were just a little late. My heart aches for you and your family. You all are in my thoughts and prayers<3 LOVE TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY~Kathi
