Obituary for LaVerne Heinrich

December 9, 1923 - November 5, 2020
Avon Lake, Ohio | Age 96

Loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Friend


LaVerne M. Heinrich of Avon Lake, formerly of Parma, passed away on Thursday, November 5, 2020. LaVerne was born December 9, 1923, one of ten children to parents Frank and Barbara (nee Lukas) Triner in Cleveland, Ohio.

LaVerne was a loving woman, active in her church ministries, first at St. James in Cleveland, and more recently at St. Paul in Westlake. She loved baking and was exceptionally good at it, becoming known to her Avon Lake neighbors as "The Baker". LaVerne's skills were honed while working in Cleveland at Cloverleaf and later in Parma at Hilltop Bakery. She used her skills to spoil her children and grandchildren with the best cookies, that only she could make exactly right. She also would bless others by selling her baked goods at the church craft shows to support ministries within the church.

LaVerne is survived by her loving children, Gay Kowalski (Curt), Craig Heinrich, Joyce Woolson (Robert), and Beth Roth (Jerry); dear grandchildren Kristine, Shawn, Stacey, Craig (Jennifer), Curt, Kimberly (Andy), Michelle (John), Jennifer (Dan), Jill (Michael), Julie (Brian) and Jerry II (Jazmyne); and great grandchildren Hope, Yarl, Dane, Maggie, Madeleine, Lydia, Victoria, Kyle, Emily, Alan, Maxx, Braxton, Tyler, Austin and Luke. She is preceded in death by her husband Roger Heinrich; daughter in law Rene Heinrich; and her parents.
