The two were together since 1980, where they formed a
love so strong that Laverne and Ronald re-married on April 15, 2000. Even
though their life was in Chicago, ILL, Laverne and Ronald moved back and forth between Green Bay, WI and Appleton, WI to be closer to family as years went on. Laverne was very dedicated in making sure her family was took care of, and nothing came before her children and grandchildren. When she officially moved to Green Bay, WI, in 2013, Laverne worked her hardest and bought a beautiful home years later that she took pride in. To make sure she could have her gatherings and her Sunday dinners, in which she welcomed everyone. Laverne was someone you called for a laugh, ideas, and when it was time to PARTY! She enjoyed throwing gatherings for her loved ones and herself. She was truly a joyful, outgoing, and loved women. Someone that could truly light up any room she stepped in.
