She met the love of her life, James Dvorak, on a blind date. They were married on February 18, 1951 and were blessed with 58 years of happily married life together living and raising a family in Thrall. Vernell loved her family with all her heart and spoiled them with great meals after church on Sundays and never hesitated to babysit and spend time with the grandkids. She and James rarely missed an activity that their children or grandchildren were involved in. They attended all the sporting events and games that their children and grandchildren were involved in as well as dance recitals, church and school programs, graduations, and birthday parties. She greatly enjoyed all the family vacations together to places like Disneyworld and gambling trips with James. She was great with numbers and after the kids got in school she worked as a bookkeeper for Taylor Savings and Loan and then worked alongside James as his bookkeeper when they started Dvorak Motors together in Thrall. After retiring, they continued to farm together and Granny also worked as a substitute clerk at the Thrall Post Office and secretary at church as well as serving as the “First Lady” of Thrall while James served as Mayor for almost 20 years. Her kind spirit was reflected in all the love and attention she gave her family and friends as well as her pets who she loved like family. Granny was a kind, loving, welcoming, and gracious lady who worked hard and never hesitated to help when needed and was a great Christian example for her family. She was a member of St. John Lutheran Church in Thrall where she had taught Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. She was also a member of the Thrall Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary and the Bunco Club. She will be greatly missed by all her family and friends.
