Remembering Verna Kathryn Payne, 1916-2017

-A A +A
By Bonnie Strassell

  Her slight frame suggested fragility, yet beneath a delicate outward appearance was an undeniable strength of character and indefatigable spirit that inspired those who came to know and love Verna Kathryn Kemper Payne. 

On November 25, 1916, on a farm near New Liberty, Clinton and Lula Lucas Kemper welcomed the arrival of a daughter. George Purdy, New Liberty’s beloved doctor, delivered Verna, and she would always have many fond reminisces of this country doctor who devoted over 50 years of his life to care for the people of the New Liberty community.
