She had many characteristics that made her special and unique. Vernice was excellent at planning for events and budgeting funds necessary. She always dressed for the occasion and had her own style. She was very passionate about ballroom dancing. Vernice frequently attended dance classes and Ballroom dance functions throughout her life. She also enjoyed traveling, she had the opportunity to visit her brother and his family in Florida and Vermont, Texas and Las Vegas. She traveled with family to Michigan to visit her sister and her family on many occasions. She never drove; but she always got to where she wanted to go, she was a tireless walker. Vernice was of great faith and loved the lord Jesus Christ, she was an avid church goer, attending a Roman Catholic church. She was very independent and her life reflected that characteristic. There were some tough periods in her life; but she always made it through with vim and vigor.
