 Verna was born on September 17, 1936 in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, to Eva (Fritzler) and Edward Brehm.   

            She married John Hart, her husband of 58 years, in 1955 in Minatare, Nebraska. Verna worked as a nurse’s aid at the Sidney Hospital for a short period of time before she and her family moved to Aurora, Colorado in 1966. For numerous years Verna worked for an independent contractor cleaning office buildings and new home builds. Later in her life she became a nanny for a close friend helping with daily errands and raising their two sons.

             Verna was a loving wife and mother, and very much beloved by all of her grandchildren. She was gifted in bringing love, joy and compassionate care to those around her. Thanksgiving was her favorite holiday as she loved to cook and enjoy the family gathering. Verna will be missed dearly by all who knew her.

              Verna is survived by her three children: David (Lorraine) Hart, of Tolleson, AZ, Steven (Heidi) Hart, of Golden, CO and Misty (Damon) Wilson of Saint David, AZ; Grandchildren: Jason, Jeremy, Jessica, Joyce, Adam, Andy, Nichole, Michael, Connor, Ryan, Carli and James; 15 Great-grandchildren, 4 Great-great grandchildren; her sisters: Sandra (Bill) Gettman of Lincoln, NE, Pam (Bill) Bolinger of Douglas, NE, and Linda (Gary) Schneider of Grimes, IA; 

              She was preceded in death by her husband John, her parents, her son Robert, her sisters Loretta and Francis, her brother Larry, her infant triplet grandsons and her infant angel grandchildren.
