Vera Brown Jarvis, 90, of Statesville, N.C., went to be with the Lord on October 25, 2021, at MapleLeaf Healthcare, for whom her family would like to express our thanks to the doctors and staff for their friendship and care given to our Mom over the last six years.
She was born December 10, 1930, in Troutman, N.C., the daughter of the late Clint and Eula Waugh. She was raised and later lovingly adopted by Gaston and Blanche Brown.
She was preceded in death by her husbands, Isaac Henry Whiting and Lester Irley Jarvis; brothers, Robert “Buck” Waugh, Jack Waugh, and James (Jimmy) Waugh; sisters, Betty Jean Hester, Peggy West, Evelyn Caldwell, and Helen Meadows.
Vera was a compassionate, outgoing, and enjoyed giving back. She was known for volunteering at Davis Hospital, helping others or delivering her famous pound cake. She never met a stranger, had a warm sense of humor, and enjoyed spending time with her family.
