LaVerne was born in Bryan on January 15, 1945, to Jesse Becker and Ruby (Smith) Becker and grew up in Bryan. She is preceded in death by her parents; sister, Jessie Lee Becker Ponzio; and brother, J.H. Becker.

She is survived by her husband, Robert “Bob” Miller; daughters Melanie Fort of Bryan, DeeDee Fort Ricke and husband Mike of Bryan, Susan Miller Jones and husband Eric of Bremond; sons, Mike Fort and wife Lisa of Battleground WA, and Bobby Miller and wife Kristen of Bremond.

She had great hopes and dreams. LaVerne married her first husband, George Fort on June 3, 1962. George was serving in the U.S. Marines, and they resided in North Carolina. While in North Carolina, they started a family and had three children: Mike, Melanie, and DeeDee.

After the military, they moved back to Bryan, but after a short while in Bryan, the family moved to Shiner TX. Shortly after moving to Shiner, LaVerne and George divorced. While in Shiner, LaVerne met Robert “Bob” Miller, and they got married on November 23, 1973. This year would have been their 50th wedding anniversary. LaVerne and Bob had two children: Susan and Bobby. While in Shiner, LaVerne and Bob purchased a farm and reared their family. After many years there, the family relocated to Bryan.

In 2008 LaVerne and Bob purchased a farm and built a home in Bremond TX. Laverne dedicated her life to taking care of Bob, her children, and grandchildren.

Laverne was a schoolmate of mine since 1st grade. Her family lived just a few houses down Antone St. when we were young. God rest her soul.

I  remember Laverne Well.  Whenever I would visit Laura Jean, we would often walk down to see what Laverne was doing..  She always had such a sweet smile all of the time, no matter what.  My childhood memories of all of us seem like 20 years ago instead of the first grade which was 72 years ago! 

Wow, just wow!
