Memories Timeline


  1. Sharon and family, we are saddened to learn of Vern’s passing. We have so many fond memories from the years you were our neighbors, Vern as our mailman and our daughters’ friendship. Vern was always our favorite mailcarrier. Cherish all of the many memories. God Bless you.

  3. My sincere sympathy. Vernon was a year behind me in high school.

    My condolences to all of the family.

  4. Dear family of Vernon,

    My sympathy and prayers to you at this time. His sister, Sister Eleanor was a member of our community. She often spoke of her family. He will be remembered in our prayers at noon through the month.
    May God bring you much Comfort and Peace.
    Sister Dominica Gerszewski

  5. Vernon was a valued high school classmate and friend. I remember him as a straight-forward guy, a sure tackler on the football team and a person who knew what he wanted to do. I also recall competing with the Mueller family for paper route territory in Mahnomen! On behalf of myself, my wife Gerry, and, I am sure, many of our 1955 classmates, sincere sympathies to the family on your loss. I have notified those classmates that I could reach. We hope you have a very special family gathering at the time of the memorial celebration. Jim and Gerry Langemo, Detroit Lakes

  6. Thinking of you, Sharon, and your family. We have happy memories of you as neighbors in the 1960’s. Andy and Ardis Johnson
