    Leaving us with the best of memories of a wonderful gentle lady who loved her husband and family, and was a real sister to our Mom, Amaline (who had only brothers). Versie will be remembered for her sweet smile, gentle ways, and loving nature. She was a treasure.

    So sorry about Versie. She and my mom, Doxie Yeary-Manning were cousins and best friends during childhood. Stopped to see her few years ago at Reesie's house. Showed us many photos of my mom who passed in 1980. Lovely lady.

    Aunt Versie had a long life full of love and caring for others. She was a true daughter to our grandparents and like a sister and best friend to my mother, as well as her own sisters and brothers. We will miss her and cherish her memory always.
