February 26, 1921 – May 21, 2015
Verna passed away peacefully on May 21st at Comox Valley Seniors Village. Verna was born to parents Vernon and Bessie Louise Chapman in Golden, BC. Verna was proud of her Canadian heritage as the fourth generation of one the original settlers of Golden, the Frank Nattrass family. Verna moved to Vancouver in early 1930 where she lived for many years. During WWII, Verna served with the Canadian Women’s Army Corps in the National Defence Headquarters in Ottawa. Verna married Jack Loverock in 1948 and raised two daughters both in Vancouver and the Comox Valley. In 1984, after many years of commuting from Vancouver to the Comox Valley, Verna and Jack settled into their Saratoga Beach home. Verna loved entertaining and enjoying a cup of tea with her fellow members of the Black Creek Fibre Arts Guild. Verna often travelled and spent many winters in Florida enjoying her happiest moments playing with her grandchildren. Verna was predeceased by her brother Gibby Chapman and husband of 51 years, Jack Loverock. Verna will be dearly missed by her two daughters, Margaret Loverock (George Lawson); Patty Loverock (Neil Ayers) and her granddaughters Jessica Sheena Ayers and Sarah Ann Lawson.
