To the family of Laverne, you have our condolences. Laverne was my uncle Bobs sister. Not only was Laverne like an Aunt but also a dear friend. I knew Laverne shortly after she moved from Racine, WI, where we were both born, to Las Vegas. I looked forward to her visits when Bill & Laverne would come to frequently visit Wisconsin. Up until my Adult life I stayed in touch many years thereafter. I moved from Wisconsin to Maine, to be with my Partner Dave, whom Laverne loved dearly. We had a lot of phone chats Laverne and I. She will be sadly missed by us. Laverne Rest In Peace and know that your in a much happier place now! I will cherish our friendship for years to come. Remember Dave said he’ll save a dance for you, but first you said you’ll have to get your hair done, and make up too! Love you, Sherry Goodland & Dave Arsenault
