What a wonderful lady! I was fortunate to have Alverna as an aunt when I was married to Glen Rathgeber. My sympathy to all of you.

My prayers to the family. Alverna was a wonderful woman and friend to my dad, Merle Zimmerman. I will cherish the memories of her.

I was sorry to read of Alverna's passing. I became acquainted with her when we both belonged to and attended meetings and events of the Norfolk Support Group for the Widowed and Divorced. I also would visit with her when she would greet me at Walmart. I remember her as a nice, friendly lady. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

I had the privilege to meet and get to know Alverna when she worked at McCrorys. My mom, Barb Sterba, managed the restaurant portion. They became good friends. It was a great surprise when we were greeted by her at Walmart. She was always so loving and friendly. My deepest sympathy.
