  • Notes 
    • As a child, someone said to Verna, "If you don't be a good girl, Santa Claus isn't going to bring you any presents!" Verna replied, "My Santa Claus is a BAD Santa Claus and he brings bad girls presents!" When Verna was little, she lived at 706 Tularosa St. near Hoover in Los Angeles. Her cousin, Thelma LaGier, would push her in a buggy to the store. Verna lived in Turlock, California in 1977 and 2009.
