Nov. 4, 1927 — Dec. 21, 2011

On Dec. 21, 2011, God received an angel, La Verne Young, beloved mother of eight.

At an early age, La Verne confessed her belief in Jesus Christ by joining Midwest Church of Christ in Louisville, Ky. In 1978, she left her home in Louisville to pursue new life goals in California, where she temporarily resided in Vacaville. For 10 years, La Verne worked as secretary to the manager of Westwind Lodging, Travis Air Force Base where she was considered to be a valued employee.

La Verne is survived by her sons, Bennie Thompkins (Mary), Lamont Thompkins (Ruby), and Kevin Thompkins; and daughters, Sheila Cornelius, Cheryl Crawford, Belinda Mendieta (Victor) and Adrienne Coleman.

Mrs. Young is a member of a very large and loving family and is survived by numerous nieces, nephews and great-grandchildren whom she loved dearly.

An open celebration of her life will be held at Harvest Worship Center, 310 Parker Street (off of Mason), Vacaville, Calif., from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 12. Pastors Dave and Patty Baker presiding.
