LaVerna Matilda Ewoldt was born on June 13, 1921, to Henry and Anna (Harm) Ullrich. She was baptized in Christ at Zion Lutheran Church and confirmed on April 16, 1935, also at Zion Lutheran Church in Denison.

LaVerna received her education in a rural school in Hanover Township and the Lutheran School in Denison. On January 1, 1946, she was united in marriage to Albert Ewoldt at Zion Lutheran Church. The couple made their home on a farm near Westside and later moved to a farm near Vail. This union was blessed with five children. In 1989, they moved to Denison to retire.

LaVerna was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, always putting her family first. She worked on the family farm raising chickens, ducks and enjoying gardening and flowers. She always took great pride in all she did. She was a wonderful cook, cooking many meals for the workers on the farm and family. She made delicious angel food cakes and wonderful homemade bread and rolls.

LaVerna was a member of the Zion Lutheran Ladies Aid, Evening Guild, Crawford County Hospital Auxiliary, Vail Legion Auxiliary and several card clubs. She had a strong faith in our Lord and was a life time member of Zion Lutheran Church in Denison.

She enjoyed traveling with family and friends, especially her trip to Europe with her daughters and a Caribbean Cruise with several cousins. She enjoyed playing cards in her card clubs and participating in card tournaments. She also enjoyed crafting, quilting, reading and volunteer work.
