Vernell was my oldest sister, when I joined the family in 1963 she was already a wife, a mother and an accomplished business women. She loved me and spoiled me as a baby sister. As a child our father Toll and my mother Phyllis went to Texas every summer. I have fond memories of the summers in Texas. Vernell would take me on her client runs and proudly introduce me as "Little Sister". My sister has always been a classy professional woman in public and at home. She truly was a fashionista before the term was coined, As an adult when I travel I would always stop in Dallas on a layover - she would come to the airport pick me up we would grab some lunch and catch up. I always was amazed and admired how she could fit me in her busy schedule. Five years ago I had an opportunity to go to Dallas a spend 7 days with my sister. Oh do I have stories, we were able to really connect. Just a year ago June 2016, Les and I had an opportunity to come to Dallas and visit with her. We are grateful that we had that opportunity to see her and love on her one last time, I will always cherish the time we spent together although the miles we distance she was never distant in my heart.

We will miss her dearly but she will live on in our hearts forever.

Linda and Family,

We are deeply sadden to hear of the passing of your dear mother and grandmother. We extend our deepest sympathy to you and your daughters.
Miss Vernell will be sorely missed. We know she is without pain and suffering now. She is with our maker, where she will greet us when it is our time to pass on.
Keeping your family in prayer
