Laverene was born March 7, 1928 in Hawk Springs, Wyo. the daughter of Arthur and Emma (Ohley) Hacker. She grew up in the Hawk Springs, Huntley, and Torrington, Wyoming areas. Laverene married Larry W. Barnes on Aug. 11, 1952. To this union six children were born, Debra (Chuck) Stoeger, Kenneth (Kathy) Barnes, Larry E. (Glenda) Barnes, Patty (Brad) Essert, Karen (Scott) Lacey all of Torrington, and Cyndi (Randy) Wiggins of Scottsbluff, Nebraska. The couple had a passion for providing for their family. They raised chickens, milk cows, beef cows, and pigs. In addition the pair had a huge garden which provided enough vegetables to be canned for the year. Laverene also sold eggs, milk and homemade bread to help make ends meet. In 1962 they began remodeling and expanding a two room shack which would become their family home. She loved to laugh and often told stories of getting in trouble for doing so, a trait she passed on to her children.
During her retirement she enjoyed making quilts for her grandchildren as they graduated high school. She loved to watch old western movies, tennis, and golf. She created a VHS collection of her favorite movies and shows. Laverene was a dedicated listener to KCMI's Hymntime radio program on Sunday morning and planned her day around it.
Laverene is survived by all of her six children and their spouses, two step-daughters Shirley (Kenny) Thrasher of Iowa, and Jenny (Fred) Currier of Torrington; brother Calvin Hacker of Cheyenne, Wyo.; a half sister Norma Berry of Minnesota and a step-brother, Clifford Newton of Oregon; 27 grandchildren; 41 great-grandchildren; and seven great-great grandchildren.
