Verna was a lifelong member of Zion Ev. Lutheran Church and was active in the Ladies Aid. She served on the Columbus Public Library Board and volunteered for the Red Cross Bloodmobile. Verna had a passion for genealogy research. She enjoyed needlework, jigsaw puzzles and gardening. Verna loved reading and as her vision declined, she enjoyed listening to books on tape.

The family would like to thank Verna's cousin Bev Herold and the staff of "At Home Again" Assisted Living for all their care and support.
