Graveside services for LaVerne Ferguson, 93, longtime resident of Conroe, Texas will be held on Saturday, October 27, 2012 at 3:00 P.M. in Garden Park Cemetery under the direction of Conroe Funeral Directors. Mrs. Ferguson was born on January 7, 1919 in Nacogdoches, Texas and passed away peacefully on October 22, 2012 in Conroe, Texas with her family by her side.

LaVerne was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 66 years, Frank Maxwell Ferguson, parents Hampton and Ruby Rudd; granddaughter, Renee Ferguson, grandson, Gordon Evan Grogan and son-in-law, Bill Lawler. She is survived by her loving children: son, Tom Ferguson and daughter, Barbara Lawler. LaVerne is also survived by her dear grandchildren, Gieselle Grogan, Will Grogan, Corey Ferguson and Leanne Lawler; seven great grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren and her daughter-in-law, Gale Ferguson, as well as, many other relatives and friends.

After LaVerne's mother graduated from Sam Houston in Huntsville, the family moved from Nacogdoches to Conroe. LaVerne graduated in 1936 from Conroe High School where she was a cheerleader. After high school she married the love of her life, Frank Ferguson and they had two beautiful children. While living in Conroe most of her adult life, LaVerne was very active in many organizations and volunteered whole heartedly. She was one of the founding members of the Montgomery County Public Library (which started out in one room at the Conroe community center), and was a lifetime member of the First United Methodist Church of Conroe where she served with the Methodist Women organization for many years. LaVerne also was a member of the Fidelis Sunday School class at Methodist. She served as Past President of Beta Sigma Phi, the Conroe Service League, and the Pan American Round Table 1. After their children were grown, LaVerne and Frank traveled and lived all over the world. They lived in Ontario, Canada, Manila, Philippines, West Virginia, north and south Louisiana to name a few and traveled all over Europe together.

Mrs. Ferguson was a loving wife, mother and grandmother who was the ultimate Southern lady who had style and grace throughout her whole life. She had a passion for her family that was evident to all that knew her. Her greatest role was that of being a loving wife, mother, grandmother and faithful friend. Her memory will carry on in the hearts of her family. The family would like to thank Kim Nichols and the wonderful staff at the Azalea House Personal Care Home in Conroe for all of their caring support.
