A lifelong resident of the Twin City area, Verna was a graduate of Uhrichsville High School in the class of 1939 before attending Canton Actual Business College. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and homemaker who will be deeply missed by her family. Verna was a member of Immaculate Conception Church in Dennison and was very active within her parish having volunteered countless hours at the parish clothing store and school over the years.

They are survived by their nine children, Gregory, Roger, David, John, Paul, Janet, Thomas, Jeanne and Anthony Hren; ten grandchildren; eleven great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews. A son, Darrell, and a daughter, Sharla, preceded them in death, and Verna was also preceded in death by her twin brothers, Harry and Roy Humrighouse.
