Vernetta Rosemary Northcutt Notice
Aug. 8, 1945 - June 3, 2014

At South Sacramento Hospital beloved mother and educator Vernetta Rosemary Northcutt passed early evening on June 3, after a valiant two plus year battle against pancreatic cancer. Her son Will and oldest nephew Robert whom loved her dearly, were with her throughout her final hours.

She moved to Elk Grove eight years ago after living in Vallejo, where she was known and respected for over 20 years as a teacher in the VUSD, spending the vast majority of her 25 plus year educational career with the VUSD as a Vallejo High School teacher. Loved and appreciated by a great number of her students, Ms. Northcutt was well known for her devotion to teaching students to reach beyond their potential and be all that they could be using well developed educational tools and creative methods.

Born in Chicago Ill., on Aug. 8, 1945, Vernetta was the eldest child of Rev. Vernon J. Lawhorn and Mrs. Margaret V. Lawhorn. Considered a true angel by those who knew and loved her, Vernetta was known and admired for her strength, professionalism, style, class, dedication and genuineness to provide useful education for all students.

She graduated with a perfect GPA and was a Magna Cum Laude at Northeastern Univ. in Illinois with a BA in History and had been in the education field since 1975.

She is survived by her only son, and will be forever missed and remembered by her many cousins, extended family members, past students, and loved friends. Most notably the Ruth Love and Yvonne Perkins families.

A memorial for her past students and close friends will be held on July 27 at the Vallejo Community Center on 225 Amador St. between the hours of 3 and 8 p.m.

If you are interested in assiting with the memorial in any way please contact her son Will Flynn at or any member of the Ruth Love family.

Thanks to all that truly cared about her and treated her with the respect she deserved. Let us rejoice, for she is truly at peace in the company of the Lord.
