LuVerne worked as wife and mother on a daily basis, and she worked for many years as a CNA at the Hillsboro Community Hospital where she was known as a very caring care giver. She was a member of the Hillsboro United Parish where she was active in the women’s society (WSCS). Each year she looked forward to the annual Church Bazaar where her quilts, and crocheted afghans and doilies were always very popular items. She also enjoyed baking holiday specialties….almost as much as everyone enjoyed eating them.

She was grandmother to Bryan (Melissa) Hutchison, Eden Prairie, MN; and Daniel (Adrienne) Hutchison, Colorado Springs, CO.
