LaVerne, as she was known to her many friends and family, went to her eternal heavenly home on Saturday, May 9, 2015. LaVerne had struggled with her health for several years until finally peacefully leaving this life's difficulties to meet her Savior face-to-face. She was born on January 28, 1937 in Enon, Texas to Arlie Eugene and Maggie Marie Powell. She was the loving wife of 62 years to Robert A. Mahaffey, who survives her. In addition to her parents, LaVerne was preceded in death by her brother, Glen Powell and a sister, Anita Glasgow. Another sister, Barbara Davis survives her. She was also preceded in death by a daughter, Charlotte Mahaffey Mims and Charlotte's daughter Laura. Surviving family members include her children, Gary Mahaffey and his wife Gail, Carol Mahaffey Lumpkin Merillat and her husband A.P, Darlene Mahaffey Carter and her husband Tom and Marc Mahaffey and his wife Denise.

LaVerne's great grandchildren are Bishop, Aven and Ronin Lumpkin, Grant Adair and Claire Audrey Mahaffey. LaVerne was a long time resident of Conroe and was active in the various churches she attended throughout her life. She was also a past children's teacher of Bible Study Fellowship. She enjoyed numerous opportunities over the years to sing with her family at revivals and ministry functions and was a dedicated, faithful volunteer at the mission outreach center sponsored by Second Baptist Church North Campus. LaVerne loved to cook and she was an excellent seamstress, creating high-quality clothing and fabric works for her friends and loved ones over the years. She was a committed Christian and woman of exceptional faith and integrity. Although she will be sorely missed, her legacy of faith and spiritual character will live on.
