The oldest daughter of 11 children, Laverne, affectionately called Dotsie, was a motherly figure to all of her siblings. She loved cooking for the family daily and helping her mom raise their large family on the farm. As she had a growing family of her own, she often told wonderful stories of the fun and adventure of her childhood years. As a young woman, she fell in love with a young man she had known since her childhood. A little wink from across the aisle at church from this handsome guy was all it took for their romance to blossom. She and Dub were married on September 25, 1954, and together they built a loving home. Laverne was a very smart, independent, and capable woman that took great satisfaction in her work. Her first job was at the local grocery store.
