MARION -- Verna Mae Belcher, 81, passed away peacefully at 7:12 p.m. on the anniversary of her birth, Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013, in Herrin Hospital with her children by her side.
According to Verna Mae's wishes, her earthly body will be cremated and a celebration of life service will be at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29, in Blue Funeral Home in Marion.
Verna Mae was born Sunday, Jan. 24, 1932, in Marion to Arvel and Olive (Dippie) Mohler.
She married Dean Belcher and together they had two children.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Arvel and Olive.
Verna Mae was a retired retail associate for the Wal-Mart corporation, having worked in the shoe department for 28 years. Her giving nature led her to volunteer at the Pittsburg food pantry for more than 25 years. She was a loving mother, grandmother and friend always putting everyone else ahead of her own needs. She loved nothing more than to cook and bake for those she loved, ensuring that all were fed to satisfaction, and still encouraging them to eat more or take what was left with them. She had a huge heart and never wanted to see a person go hungry. Her absence in the community will be felt by those who knew and loved her for years to come.
