LaVerne English Procaccino

ASHLAND — LaVerne English Procaccino, 73, of Ashland, went home to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Aug. 22, 2013.

LaVerne was preceded in death by her husband, Henry “Hank” Procaccino.

LaVerne was a member of the Moore Street Tabernacle Church in Ashland.

She is survived by her sister, Brandy “Ernie” Wurtz; three daughters, Linda Sue Libert, Brenda Lee Diaz and Tina Marie Sizemore; two sons, Tony Franklin and Scott Franklin; and 15 grandchildren.

It was LaVerne’s desire to have her body donated to the  Marshall University Medical Sciences program in hopes of helping others. She will be greatly missed by all that loved and knew her.

There are no services planned.

LaVerne’s Personal Prayer: Oh Lord, help me to be strong so nothing can disturb my peace. Help me oh Lord to make everyone I meet to feel that there is something good in them. Lord, help me to forgive myself and my past mistakes as you have forgiven me. Oh Lord help me to work on improving myself so I’ll have no time to spare to criticize others. To live in faith that you are by my side. How grateful I am that God sent His only son to shed his blood for me that I might live again. He has gone to prepare a place for me for where He is there I will be also. He said so!

Thank you Lord Jesus!
