On Monday, June 5th, 2017, at the age of 65 years, Vern passed away
suddenly in his own home.
He is remembered with love by his brother, Miles Stevenson, his sisters, Freda (Sis) Rankin, Bonnie Trautman, Libby Lameris, and Sadie Trebell and their families, as well as his half-brother and sisters and their families.
He grew to love carpentry in high school and became a carpenter by
trade. Even when sick, he could make exquisitely precise measurements.
Vern spoke highly of Dr. Rose, and the family is in appreciation of
both his help and the help that Vern received through the years from
many in the Boyle Street Community.
Cremation has taken place. The interment of his urn will take place at
Alexander First Nation’s Reserve, where Vern’s mother and sister are
buried. A gathering will follow for immediate family at Libby’s house.
