Vermelle “Vern” Thrasher, of Covington, passed away Sunday, January 3, 2021, at the age of 80. Known as “Nana” to her grandchildren, Mrs. Thrasher’s true self was evident in the way she interacted with family and friends. She was a hands-on mom who rarely missed her daughters’ activities.

Her warmth and kindness will be profoundly missed, but her memory will serve as comfort to the family she adored. Mrs. Thrasher was preceded in death by her parents, James and Corinth “Rint” Priester.
