  1. Vergie was a greatly loved member of the Coushatte Recreation Ranch located in Bellville, TX for many, many years. She loved to cook and cooked for many functions here at Coushatte. She will be missed more than words can express.
    Vergie & Country were members of the Good Sam Go-Slows chapter. One could always rely on Vergie to furnish some sort of “goodies” for our monthly meetings. She loved to play Skip-Bo with the other ladies.
    We will miss Vergie sitting out on her front porch patiently waiting for someone to come along and “sit a spell and visit” during the days when she was unable to ride around the Ranch in her motorized wheel chair.
