After graduating from Stevens Point Normal College she began her teaching career. Verna worked in a one room school house in Marsh Rapids. She continued teaching at many schools including St. Joseph's in Stratford. She was a charter member of "Small Town Friends" homemakers club in the Fenwood area for over 50 years. Verna was also a lifetime member of St. Peter's Ladies Aide, Fenwood as well as teaching Sunday school for many years. Teaching was her passion.

Another of her interests was traveling with her husband, Delbert and they took many trips visiting Europe, Alaska, Hawaii, Florida and many other destinations.

Entombment will be in the Garden of Eternal Rest, Restlawn Memorial Park, Wausau. Friends may call Friday at the church from 10:00 a.m. until the time of services. In recognizing Verna's love for teaching children Christian values, memorials will be added to the scholarship fund for Pre-K/Preschoolers at St. Paul's Lutheran School in Stevens Point.
