Obituary for Laverna Mae Bannister

Laverna “Vernie” Mae Bannister passed away September 6, 2019 in Ada, Oklahoma. Laverna was born in Stratford, Oklahoma on July 3, 1947 to Raymond and Faye Blankenship. She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother, Lloyd Blankenship. She is survived by her children, Angela Bertis, Tracy and husband Jay Gibson, and Nicki and husband Leon Goforth, and grandchildren David Bertis, Kenneth Bertis, Lacy Cowan, James Gibson, Jason Beam, and Holly Holman. She had eight great-grandchildren. Vernie is also survived by her sisters Nancy Brown and Mary Earnhart, several nieces, nephews, cousins, and other family members.

Laverna enjoyed reading, doing puzzles, going to garage sales, fishing, and an occasional trip to the local casino. She also loved listening to her classic country music. She will be remembered for the way she always made people laugh, her generosity, and her love for her family. She was always a hard worker, working several years at the Pauls Valley State School and McCall’s Chapel in Ada.

Laverna will be deeply missed, but it is a comfort to know that she gave her heart to the Lord and prayed often.

Family and friends are invited to an informal memorial service at the United Pentecostal Church in Wynnewood at 12:00 Saturday September 14, 2019.
