Verleen met David at the University School of Music and they were married in 1946. They lived in Ogallala, NE and moved the family to Phoenix, AZ in 1962. Verleen and David were married 68 years. She was the most caring of mothers, and affectionately known by her children as "Bobbie." Verleen had many talents including a beautiful singing voice, a love of dancing, and an eye for sketching and design. She served God and family through a deeply prayerful Catholic faith, and lovingly took care of her parents and husband in the years before they died.

Through her children and grandchildren, a legacy of loving kindness lives on and she will forever be in our hearts.
