LaVerne was born on November 6, 1931, to Frank and Lillian (Kubik) Zetocka. She graduated from Wahoo High School, earned her teaching certificate from Midland College in Fremont and taught school in her local rural school districts for six years.

LaVerne met the love of her life, Richard, at a wedding dance in Weston, Nebraska. The two were united in marriage on October 20, 1956, at St. John's Catholic Church in Weston. There were four children born of this union.

Throughout her years, LaVerne enjoyed every aspect of working side-by-side with her husband, Richard, time with family, summer vacations, and the time spent with her extension club ladies, just to name a few of the many highlights of her happy life. She was also an avid flower and vegetable gardener, excellent cook, and dedicated wife and mother.

Survivors cherishing LaVerne's memory include her children: Marla (Ted) Bailey, Ronda (Doug) Masek, RoxAnne (Larry) Epp, and Warren (Marie) Kucera. Six grandchildren: Natalie (Garret) Fiala, Leslie Masek, Olivia and Jackson Epp, Rylan and Kaiden Kucera; Sisters Ellen (Van) Pacl, and Berniece Hotovy.

LaVerne is preceded in death by her husband, Richard Kucera in 2015, parents Frank and Lillian Zetocka; and sister Darlene Coufal.
