February 14, 1929 — August 21, 2021

LaVerne Frances McGee, age 92, Mound City, Kansas formerly of Centerville, Kansas, passed away Saturday, August 21, 2021. She was born on February 14, 1929, in Coyle, Oklahoma, the daughter of Arthur and Vonnie Morgan Lamb.  She spent her younger years in Oklahoma and moved to the Wall Street area in her teens.

LaVerne valued her family. She enjoyed getting together every year for the Lamb August Birthday Dinner and at Christmas with her very large extended family on both the Lamb and McGee side of the family. She loved her children and grandchildren devotedly and she and Earnest set an example that will be carried down to generations of their family in the future.
