Verna L. Sevinsky

Verna L. Sevinsky, 85, of Coudersport, PA, passed away peacefully with family by her side on Thursday, May 24, 2018 at Cole Memorial Hospital, Coudersport. 

She married Theodore “Sonny” F. Sevinsky in August of 1951. They shared over 40 years of marriage together prior to Sonny’s death in 1995. Verna was born on November 5, 1932 in Coudersport, PA, the only daughter of the late Harry and Goldina (McCracken) Foust.

Verna was employed as a machinist with the Pure Carbon Company for nearly 40 years. She was a member of the St. Eulalia Catholic Church, formerly serving as a Catholic Daughter. She was a strong advocate of women’s rights and actually helped raise all seven of her brothers as the only daughter in the family. 

Verna had many hobbies and interests including golfing, bowling, reading, sewing, knitting and crocheting. She also took great pride in riding her Vespa scooter around town. Most importantly, she loved to take camping trips with her children and grandchildren, whom she was so proud of and loved dearly. Verna will be remembered by family and friends for her great sense of humor and distinct laughter.

Left to cherish Verna’s memory are her four children, Ted (Diana) Sevinsky of Coudersport, Karla (Terry) Neefe of Coudersport, Penny (Jasper) Tingley of Hinsdale, NY and Nancy (Lynn) Grupp of Coudersport; 11 grandchildren, Lynn, Theodore, Jenna, Anthony, Jeff, Greg, Colby, Jim, Andy, Gary and Sarah; 14 great-grandchildren; three brothers, Wayne, Joe and John, all of Coudersport; several nieces and nephews; many dear friends.

In addition to her parents and late husband, Sonny, Verna was preceded in death by four brothers, Harry, Walter, Tom and Ed.

Memorial services will be held at the convenience of her family. Memorial donations can be made in Verna’s name to the Coudersport Ambulance Association, 122 E. 2nd Street, Coudersport, PA 16915.

What a beautiful woman I had the great pleasure of meeting just a couple short weeks ago. I'd planned to come visit her again. She was such a joy and inspiration and full of the most wondrous stories, so aware and appreciative of all the happenings in her neighborhood, much love for her family and friends. She will be missed. My condolences to her family. She loved you all very much.
