She spent many hours reading her Bible and listening to Bluegrass/Gospel music. Verlee was also an avid fan of the St. Louis Cardinals. Her greatest enjoyment came from being with her family, especially her grandchildren. She was a very proud grandmother who loved to talk with others about her family.
