Verna Flo Rieve, 86, of Little Rock passed away on Thursday, May 20, 2021. She was born on November 23, 1934 in Gillett, Arkansas to Fred William and Alvira Schwede Rieve. She graduated from Perryville High School in the Class of 1952. She was long time Office Manager of Gaunt & Company. Certified Public Accounts retiring in 1999. She enjoyed camaraderie of her Perryville Class of 1952 and until recently attended quarterly lunch with class members. She considered her colleagues and clients at Gaunt & Company to be friends keeping up with many of them for over 20 years past her retirement. Vera, her twin sister, and she were inseparable. Much of the time, they dressed identically and they were referred to in the collective as “the Twins” by family and friends. Verna enjoyed competing with Vera in the Arkansas State Fair cake baking contest. Each fall the question was: did Verna’s Italian Cream or Vera’s German Chocolate win best of show? She has been a member of Grace Lutheran Church for over 60 years. She enjoyed signing in the choir, attending the Fellowship Club and the relationships she made there. Until the onset of Covid-19, she rarely missed a service or event at the church. She was preceded in death by her parents, her twin sister, Vera F. Rieve, her sister Shirley A. Rieve, her sister and brother-in law, Frances R. and A. Mark Bennett. She was also predeceased by her shelties: Mitzi, Cindy, Casey and Honey. She is survived by her nephew, A. Mark Bennett III, of Little Rock; and many cousins and family members.

Gerre and I send our sincere condolences to the family. Verna was like family to us. I enjoyed seeing her on visits to my Dad's office while growing up. She was always happy and truly enjoyed the Gaunt and Company staff and their families, as well as, the clients. I remember Verna talking so much about she and Vera going to Travelers baseball games where they were regulars, filling out their scorecards every game. Many happy memories of Verna for me and my family. Our thoughts and prayers are with Verna's friends and family at this time.
