She attended St. Paul's Lutheran School in Williamsburg. Luverna was united in marriage to Herbert Alvin Kleinmeyer on August 30, 1946 at the St. Paul Lutheran Church parsonage.

Vernie was a homemaker and domestic in the Williamsburg area. She was a life long member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church, where she was baptized and confirmed. She spent her spare time gardening, canning, and baking. She was well known for her made from scratch chocolate angel food cakes. She enjoyed playing cards with family and friends.

Vernie passed away on Friday, June 29, 2018 at Willow Gardens care Center in Marion, Iowa, at the age of 89 years, after a long, courageous battle with dementia.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband in 1998; her son-in-law Bernie Stevens in 2005; two brothers: Gilbert & Harold Maas; and two sisters: Lucille Jones and Lillian Hopp.

So sorry for your loss, Donna. My prayers are with you at this time. My husband just passed away, also, on June 25th, after a 3 yr. battle with cancer. May they both rest in peace.

The Maas Clan would like to send a memorial to the Lutheran School since both our Mom and Dad were so involved with Central Lutheran in our younger days. In loving memory of Aunt Vernie.

Aunt Vernie, may the peace of the Lord be with you. Enjoy your family in heaven. Pam Beisker

So many wonderful memories of Aunt Vernie. We did not know how lucky we were to have close family growing up—the good times at each other’s house, and all the cousins. An era has ended, and we hold those memories close, but Heaven is joyous, with all the siblings and spouses reunited. Sheephead is in full swing! Our family sends your family sympathy, prayers, and love.
