Verna Larene Wardle Green: Funeral Program

Pocatello-  Verna LaRene Wardle Green, Pocatello, passed away Tueasda, march 2, 1020, at Portneuf Medical Center with members of her family by her side.
Verna was born July 10, 1929, to James Wilford and Melissa Ann Shaw Wardle in Rigby, Idaho.  SHe was the youngest of their eight children.  Three of her siblis died as babies, so the family she grew up in had three sisters and a brother.
Her sisters were Audre (Ellis) Chase, Lula (Jack) Beasley, Phyllis (James) Olsen and James (Ileen) Wardle.  They all preceded her in death.  After graduating from high school, Verna jointed the United States Army, and was always proud of her service in the military.
While in the Army she met and married the love of her life, Bill Green.  They were later sealed in the LDS Temple and they enjoyed giving service to their community and to their church.  Together they had three children, Danny (Sadie) Green, Billy Green and LaRene Green.
After leaving the Army, Verna obtained her teaching certificate and taught at several schools in Eastern Idaho.  She always loved being a teacher.  Bill, her husband, was a great mechanic and they spent many years living in California, where Bill became a top troubleshooter for a large trucking company.
Verna enjoyed giving service to her fellow men and was always finding ways to help out.  Her and the family enjoyed camping, and she always loved going beck to Teton Basin to inspire her soul.  Verna also served as an election worker and was passionate about people voting.  She felt that her and Bill served in the military to protect our right to vote. 
She was a collector and always had a lot of interesting items to share with her family and friends.  But Verna's greatest love was for quilting and sewing.  To have one of Verna's quilts was always a highlight of her family and friends.
Verna is survived by her daughter, Larene; three grandchildren, Danielle, Gene (Aeriana) and Stephani (Austin); six great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren.

Marvin O. Ashton, General Authority Visited the Wright Home.

My mother, in her history tells the story of this music.  "Mother and Dad were so thrilled at the way we could play the piano.  One time, Marvin O. Ashton (member of the Presiding Bishopric and Marvin J. Ashton's father) and another visiting authority came to conference and the folks had them for dinner.  We played for them and later Brother Ashton sent us a piano duet book.  Grandma's half sister, Aunt Rose, was Marvin's wife."
I found this music in mom's stuff, and assume this is the music Bishop Ashton sent to here.  There was also a piece for six hands.
