Verna was a special friend to my beloved aunt, Peg Stilwell. Verna is part of my earliest childhood memories. I remember her big laugh, and kindness to me and my brothers. Rest in peace, dear Verna. May memories comfort all those who love you.

My heart aches because I have lost one of my greatest friends. It is hard to give her up even though I know she is now in the hands of great friends, family and a wonderful spiritual world filled with love. Her laugh and smile will always be with me. She was a great friend of my sister and family and supported me from childhood to the day of her death. Who could ask for more! I knew her as a girl scout, camper, mentor and friend. She was beloved by generations of students and fellow teachers. So many would come up to her and say, "Do you remember me, Ms. Yeoman?" And of course she smiled and made a fuss over that person. Good bye my dear friend. I hope we meet in eternity!

I was so very saddened to read about Verna's passing! I worked with Verna and always looked forward to seeing her. She always had a funny story, a hearty laugh, a kind word and always a mischievous look in her eyes! Verna was a great teacher, friend and colleague. I am so sorry that she is gone.
RIP Verna. You will never be forgotten!❤

My heart aches. For the world has lost a great educator. Pure gold! She always seemed to know what each child needed. How many people get to say that both me and my son had miss yeoman as a teacher? Goodbye, the halls of Pleasantville seem quieter today.

She was my Aunt Sissie and I have nothing but loving, fond and happy memories of her. She always had a smile. My sister and I would stay with her when we were kids and we always had fun with her. She very rarely ever scolded us and when she did it would always be because we were bickering with each other. And when she did raise her voice it was loud!! LOL!!! We loved when she had Tubby and Kimmy her 2 Pekingese. We thought Aunt Sissie was so cool because she lived in apartments and for that reason it made her very hip in my eyes!!! We used to love when school was out and she would bring us to her classroom to "help" her clean the classroom at the end of the year. We felt so special because we were the only kids allowed in the school on those days. Heaven definitely gained a very special Angel when she arrived. God Bless her, she will be missed.

This marks the passing of a legend. Verna taught with her heart. She was the touchstone for many, many challenged students. Her unconventional and uninhibited approach brought success to so many.
Cannot forget her Halloween haunted houses at Pleasantville. Take a brief rest in the great beyond and then get busy teaching the angels.

Verna was an original. She was a great and loving teacher, friend and mentor. Her beautiful smile, quick laugh, and the mischievous twinkle in her eyes are what I'll remember most about her. That and all her favorite stories about the students she taught and loved and remembered fondly. Everyone who met her couldn't help but love her. Rest in Peace, Verna.

I was honored to know Verna. She was my first table mate. I considered her my best friend at Churchmans Village. I was blessed to know her.
