Vernette was born on June 22, 1935 to the late Charlie and Bessie Wilder of Holly Hill, SC. She was a devoted mother and grandmother all of her life. She enjoyed waking up and taking care of children, spending her afternoons with the Young and the Restless, and watching the sunset on the front porch. Her home was always open to family and friends and you could bet she would be determined to feed you-hungry or not. Those who knew her will forever miss her warm heart and gentle soul.
