Verna Bernice Standing McGraw
(Service time is 12:00 NOON)
Our sweet Mother, Sister, and Nana passed through the veil on Monday, May 7, 2012 surrounded by loving family members. She was met there by both parents, 4 siblings, and an infant daughter. Verna was born April 23, 1929 in Fielding, Utah to Leonard Standing and Leona Earl. She graduated from Bear River High School where she played the Clarinet in the band, and enjoyed all types of music and singing. Verna and her sister Lila Miller sang and performed at many Weddings, Socials, and Funerals.
After High School Verna moved to Ogden where she married Frank Keyes, and had two children Michael Keyes (Zona ) and Eileen Keyes Pitcher (Jeff). She later married Quentin Beasley and had her last child Keith Beasley (Janet). She later married Harold (Mickey) McGraw, and helped raise his son Michael McGraw as her own. (She really didn’t want us to publish all those husbands’ names.)
Verna was a wonderful Mother who instilled in her children a sense of love, kindness and compassion. She was loved by all who knew her and had a great love for all animals and the outdoors. Verna was a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Nana cherished all of her Grandchildren and so enjoyed their visits and phones calls. She always kept them updated on any local and world events (Including the Weather & natural disasters.)
Verna is survived by her three children, 13 Grandchildren, 28 1/2 Great Grandchildren, and 1 sister Lila (Dennis) Miller.
A graveside service will be held in her honor Sat. May 12, 2012 at 12:00 PM at the Ogden City Cemetery. Address 1875 Monroe Blvd, Ogden Utah 84401. Condolences may be shared at: www.cannonmortuary.com.
