 I previously worked at Chapel Pointe as an activities aide. Verna was always a willing person in our activities as she was able! I appreciated that. Very nice lady - fun to talk to.

 Sorry to hear of the loss of your mother.
She was a very nice lady and she will be missed.

 My parents (Lee and Nellie Sunday) were very good friends and neighbors of Verna and Guy Shultz when they lived in Boiling Springs. Verna was especially kind and helpful to my mother when my dad was ill and later died in 1997. She remained a good friend over the years. My deepest sympathy to Nancy, Judy and the entire Shultz family.

We have lost a great lady. Verna brought happiness to so many people. I remember her baking birthday cakes for everybody at the Office of Aging.

 I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of such a wonderful, friendly, loving, caring person that our Verna was. the Lord has taken her home to be with her husband, doc shultz, who was also just as friendly, loving, and caring. I knew them both from my working with their daughter, nancy miller, at northside vet clinic. They will be sadly missed but happily reunited. Our thoughts and prayers go out to their family.
love and deepest sympathy,
Irene Eldridge-Hanaway and family.
