LaVerna was born in Tablerock, Neb., to David Wright Quinnett and LaZetta Mae Frazier on June 20, 1937. At age two, her parents were divorced and she was raised by her mama.
The family grew as mom LaZetta remarried and four siblings entered the picture: Darlene, Larry, Bob and Sharon. LaVerna was her mother’s right-hand helper in the raising of these two boys and two girls.
