Obituary
OBITUARY

Laverne Francerine Stringer of St. Clair, MO, departed this life in Union, MO, on July 13, 2020, having reached the age of seventy-five years, eight months and fifteen days. Laverne was born in St. Charles, MO, on October 28, 1944, daughter of Thomas Dwight Dixon and Ellen Delerine Dixon nee Kramer. On September 25, 1961, she was united in marriage to Jerry Miles Stringer and two daughters came to bless this union.

Laverne is survived by one daughter, Carol Shelton and husband, Steve, of St. Clair; by three grandchildren, Erica Schultz and husband, Steve, and Michelle and Kristie Vondracek; by two sisters, Rose Marie Wagner of Lake St. Louis, MO and Bernice Collins of Troy, MO; by several great-grandchildren, brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, cousin and many friends.

Laverne was preceded in death by her parents, Thomas and Ellen Dixon; by her husband, Jerry Stringer, by her daughter, Peggy Vondercek, and by one brother, Lloyd Dixon.

Laverne was a Christian, having been raised in the Baptist faith and believing in the Lord as her Savior. She had made caring for her home and family her career in life and she never tired of her job. She was a kind lady and enjoyed doing quieter activities such as embroidery. Nothing made her happier than the time she spent with her family and many wonderful memories were created.

A kind and loving mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, great and great-great-aunt, cousin and friend, she will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew and loved her.

Funeral services were held at 12:00 PM on Wednesday, July 15, 2020, at Russell Colonial Funeral Home in St. Clair, MO, with the Rev. Raymond Laramore officiating. Interment was in Crestview Memorial Park, St. Clair, MO. Memorials may be made to the Sunset Health Care Activities Department.
