Verna Fae Gould, 86, passed away peacefully on Friday, November 23, 2019 in Lansing, Michigan. She was born February 26, 1933 in Lima, Ohio to Verne and Olga (Tomlinson) Hook. After raising their family in Breckenridge, Verna and her husband Gordon Gould moved to Sanford, Michigan to be closer to family. An avid reader, Verna was also an outstanding seamstress who could make, mend, or alter anything. She loved playing cards and games, and she was very involved in Sanford United Methodist Church.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Gordon Gould; her daughter, Janet Taylor; her grandchildren, Jane Taylor and Gordon Taylor; and her parents and siblings.

She will be lovingly remembered by her son, Steven (Cynthia) Gould; her granddaughter, Collen (William) Keiper; and her great-granddaughter-on-the-way.

Memorial Services will be held on Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 11am at Sanford United Methodist Church, 2560 N W River Rd, Sanford. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service, and a luncheon will follow the memorial service at church.

In honor of Verna, memorial contributions may be made to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Fund, 5005 LBJ Freeway, Suite 526, Dallas, TX 75244, or to the Sanford United Methodist Church.
