She loved day visits to her roots in East Texas & Waxahachie.  She enjoyed long walks and sewing which was her passion!  She was an incredible seamstress!

Family was always extremely important to LaVerne, lending spiritual & emotional support consistently.  She gave relentlessly of her time to everyone.  She was a very giving wife & Mother, loving unconditionally!  Her delicate presence will greatly be missed.  She was truly a blessing to the lives she touched.

Dear Friend Annette and family,

We are so sorry for the grief of separation you are experiencing from your mama and grandmother. She is the one who has been there from the very beginning, and it's never easy to say goodbye. I pray you are experiencing even more of our dear Lord's boundless grace and mercy and the peace that only He can supply as you walk through these days. Treasure all the good memories in your heart. They will bring a smile in the days ahead. :)

I love you all!

Dear Gebron family,
A kinder and sweeter person never existed. LaVerne was my Mom's best friend, and I'll always consider her one of the most special people in my life. A very exceptional lady indeed. My deepest sympathies to everyone in your family, and especially Lisa, who I grew up with. I'm glad your mother was with y'all for this long; I know you will miss her so much. My prayers are with you all. Love, Marty

We were very sorry to hear about the passing of Laverne, as we knew here at the Coppell Senior Center. It's been a few years since we've seen her, but we'll always remember Laverne and her sweet husband, Joe.
