LaVerne Dietzel, 78

      Youngstown:  LaVerne Dietzel went to be with Jesus on May 25, 2017 after a two month illness of pulmonary fibrosis. 

      She was born on November 29, 1938 in Youngstown, the daughter of the late John and Dorothy (Krichbaum) Dietzel.

      LaVerne graduated from Boardman High School and attended Penn-Ohio Junior College.  She was a lifelong resident of Youngstown.

      LaVerne was a member of Highway Tabernacle Church in Austintown for 40 years and in recent years, attended Doers of the Word Baptist Church in Cortland for their evening services.

      LaVerne is survived by two brothers, Jack K. Dietzel of North Lima and Ronald E. Dietzel of Boardman.
