Vernie drove school bus for headstart before her health issues began. Family always joked with her that she had what we called the "Santa clause syndrome" which meant everywhere she went kids seemed to come up and talk to her. She really enjoyed that. She got dealt a very hard hand in life. Dealing with serious medical issues for half her life. But she was always kind to everyone. A little blunt and forward at times but it always came from a good place. Anyone that walked through her door she would treat as family. She became a second mom to lots of friends and cousins.
Vernie's light in her life were her children and grandchildren. She loved going fishing and hunting with them whenever she felt up to it! And she attended every softball/baseball game she was able to.
Vernie was preceded in death by her daughter Jenny Williams, granddaughters Abby & Kynleigh, brother Troy Moore and father Mineffe Moore.
