Laverne Maresh

July 8, 1926 ~ January 18, 2023 (age 96) 96 Years Old


Laverne Maresh departed her loving family and friends on January 18, 2023.

Mom was born in Waxahachie, Texas on July 8th, 1926, to Ruth and Walter Poole. As one of six children whose father was tragically killed at a young age, Laverne, her older brother Kenneth, and younger sister Yvonne were placed in the Methodist Children’s Home located in Waco, Texas. Mom left the orphanage at the age of sixteen, and soon married the love of her life, our father, Victor.

Laverne was mother to Carl, Conrad, Cody, and Tim Maresh. Conrad died during his infancy. Cody passed away in May 2022. Mom and dad raised us boys with love and devotion in Orange, California.

Laverne enjoyed several different careers including manager of a physician’s office, cosmetologist, and product inspector for both Northrup Grumman and Allergan Pharmaceutical. In each of these capacities, she was known for her perfectionism and friendly personality. Mom was an exceptional cook and seamstress. Her hobbies included conversation, reading, painting, and cooking. Above all else, she loved having been blessed as a wife and mother.

Laverne is survived by her sister Yvonne (McNeil), her sons Carl and Tim, nine grandchildren, 11great grandchildren, one great-great grandchild, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Requiem Mass will be held at Saint Norbert Catholic Church (300 E. Taft Avenue) in Orange, CA on Thursday, February 2nd at 10:00AM.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Methodist Children’s Home in Waco, Texas (www.mch.org) can be made in the name of Laverne (Poole) Maresh.
