Vernie Update

Quite a few of you have asked how my Aunt Vernie is doing.

She lived in Kentucky with her sister Emma in a cute little house that family had fixed up for them. Emma has never married and makes rugs and quilts to sell. Vernie is a very capable helper around the house, and especially enjoyed helping make rugs.

Last fall Emma had a stroke, thankfully she recuperated from that well enough so that she can walk, but things have become too difficult for them to live alone. Emma and Vernie have moved out of Kentucky to the community where my parents and one of my Mom's sisters live.

They are doing okay. You can tell Vernie is getting older, she loves helping Mom out in her store, but a full day of activity is a lot more tiring for her than it used to be. She is still the same sweet spirited person she has always been.


  1. Thank you for the update. It's a wonderful thing that your culture makes space and support available for family members in need. We out here in the world need a dose of that.

  2. Thank you for letting us know how they're doing. Family closeness is wonderful and I'm so happy you still have contact with yours.

  3. Glad they are doing well. growing older my husband and i have decided is not always easy!

  4. To keep one's voice sweet, one's will steady, one's patience unperturbed, in the arena of the home, in the light of one's own family, is no light task.
