Obituary for LaVerne (Vern) Kay Jones

LaVerne Kay Jones was born June 1, 1968 in Denver, CO born to Elisha (Buck) and Ruth I. Jones. She was the youngest of three children, baby sister to Carmen and James. She was educated in the Denver Public Schools. Early in life she accepted Christ as her personal savior and was baptized at Zion Baptist Church by the late Pastor, Wendell T. Liggins. She was very active in the Sunday School and the choir. Vern was a hard worker. She worked in Customer Service and held many positions within
the hotel industry.

LaVerne enjoyed spending time with family and friends, she had a special bond with her nieces and nephews and her furry Brother Teddy Jones. She often commented he was the Love of her life!

Vern spent many hours with her devoted companion of thirteen years Leonard (Lenny) Stevenson who preceded her in death. LaVerne was an avid Denver Broncos fan. Her favorite hobby was playing Bingo and hanging out on the deuce deuce (22nd Avenue). LaVerne had a great sense of humor and was a joy to be around.

Due to many health challenges she spent many days in Denver Health Hospital and gained a lasting friendship with her primary care Dr. Jennifer Adams. She also was very fond of her therapist, Ms. Pat and Ms. Yvonne. With all of her health challenges LaVerne remained steadfast in the belief that God was taking care of her. She trusted God to see her through.
