Obituary for Verna M. Lick

April 23, 1924 - January 16, 2021
Greenwood, Indiana | Age 96


Verna M. Lick, 96, of Greenwood, passed away at University Heights Nursing and Rehab on Saturday, January 16, 2021 following continued pneumonia from COVID-19.
Verna was born on April 23, 1924 at home on a farm in Dresden, North Dakota to Rudolph and Pauline (Sperling) Lick who both preceded her in death. Early in her life, Verna grew up on farms in Cavalier County, North Dakota. Her first job was at Burke Hospital working in the kitchen. Following that, she was employed in the nursery department at Langdon Hospital. She moved to Benton Harbor, Michigan in 1951, then on to Santa Ana, CA where she retired from The United States Postal Service. After retirement, she moved to Estero, FL where she made her home with her sister, Delina. After 12 years, they decided to make a move to Greenwood, IN, where she was cared for by her niece, Sheryl. Although she had dementia, she continued to enjoy a nice glass of wine, nice clothing and lovely jewelry. She was always quite spunky.
Verna is survived by her son, Timothy Lick of Prior Lake, MN; her grandsons, Nicholas Vien and Matthew Lick, both of Minnesota; great grandson, Riley Vien of Minnesota; one brother, Norman Lick of Estero, FL; two sisters, Emma Gerlach of Coopersville, MI and Delina Boyd of Greenwood, IN; several nieces and nephews and her best friend, Betsy Key.
Verna was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Theodore Lick, Frank Lick, Elmer (Buddy) Lick; and sisters, Evelyn Shushman and Lillian Zettle.
A memorial service will take place on Thursday, January 21, 2021 at Light of Life Luthern Church where Verna was a member. Burial will follow at a later date in Dresden, North Dakota. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, funeral services will be private.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made in Verna's memory to Light of Life Lutheran Church, 2234 Sheek Rd., Greenwood, IN 46143.
