LaVerne was born on January 3, 1933, to the late Ted and Hulda Richter Schwausch in Copperas Cove, Texas. She was baptized and confirmed at Immanuel Lutheran Church by Rev. L.J. Werner. LaVerne attended school in a one-room schoolhouse at Immanuel Lutheran Day School with her sister and her brother. She graduated from Copperas Cove High School in 1950. LaVerne traveled to various duty stations for 20 years with her first husband and their four daughters. She later married Lawrence Louis Isert, Jr., on December 17, 1978, in Austin and they shared their lives just shy of 42 years together. She was a lifetime Lutheran even after spending the last 50 years in Austin, she always planned to return “home” to Immanuel. She will be remembered for her love for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. LaVerne had a kind heart for all animals and was constantly taking in strays. She was an excellent seamstress, loved to oil paint, and to spoil animals.
