Verla Jean Zollman LeBlanc Rametes
My mother-in-law, Verla Jean Zollman LeBlanc Rametes, passed away a year ago. For almost thirty six years she was a powerful influence in my life. She demonstrated what it means to be tough and determined. It takes a super woman to raise five sons, who grew to become honorable men. She was patient, understanding and considerate of all. Many of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren received a quilt at birth and other treasures throughout their lives. Having new babies in the family was a great occasion for Jean. Her life was filled with family, friends, church acquaintances, and fellow workers, etc. She had pluck and was not feint hearted when work was required of her. We loved watching her humming birds and the squirrels that came to visit. Her greatest wish was granted in that she lived out her life in her own home. Now she is off to her eternal home and no longer is bound by her earthly infirmities. We all look forward to receiving a warm hug from Jean when we see her again.
