A lifelong resident of Trenton, NJ, Laverne was educated in the Trenton Public School System. Laverne worked for Hamilton Continuing Care Rehabilitation as the Food Service Supervisor for several years. She grew up in Emmanuel Pentecostal Temple and was avid about being kind to people in life. 

Laverne loved her family and had a heart of gold!

infectious, and she was the life of any gathering. Laverne was never a "homebody" and loved to travel when she could, she even lived in Salt
