Mary Verna Melough

Mary Verna Melough of Torrance, CA passed away peacefully in Thousand Oaks, CA on March 14th, 2015 at the age of 96. Verna is survived by her three children-Evelyn, Janine and Timothy and grandsons Jason and Kevin, siblings Ollie and Everett and many generations of nieces and nephews in and around Perth, Ontario Canada where she was raised on a farm her first 20 years. She was preceded in death by Charles Melough her loving husband of 57 years.

Verna was always on the go. She was at TRW during the Apollo missions and worked on the programs that sent our men to the moon. She also worked on other projects that sent probes to the edges of the galaxy. She was a very loving, caring mother and always made time for everyone while putting her family before herself. We could not have asked for a better mother and grandmother and she will be missed enormously.

Visitation is scheduled on Monday, March 23rd from 5:00 PM to 9 PM at Rice Mortuary located at 5310 Torrance Blvd, Torrance, CA 90503. Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, March 24th at St. Catherine's Laboure Church in Torrance CA at 9:30 AM.
