Verna loved spending her time outdoors, whether it was tending her flowers, fishing, mushroom hunting, or working on the garden. Well into her 80’s, she was still push mowing her yard and making sure nothing was out of place. If the weather allowed, you could always find her outside. She thoroughly enjoyed having family over for a meal, always making sure to have a cherry pie for Kurt. One of her many talents includes sewing. Many people have enjoyed her handmade dolls and crafts over the years, setting up at the Covered Bridge and different crafting events. Her witty sense of humor, hard work ethic, and devotion to the family will never be forgotten. Verna is survived by her immediate family as well as one brother Sherman (Rene) Lemmons. She is preceded in death by both parents, her husband, and two brothers Raymond and Freeman (Curly) Lemmons, as well as one sister Julie Lemmons Hendrix.
