She was born on May 30, 1925, near Alma, Wisconsin, at the home of her parents, George and Bertha (Hess) Kurth. Verna was the youngest of two children.

Robert and Verna had 70 years together until his death on October 31, 2016. They lived outside Fountain City, on Waumandee Creek Road, where they raised their four children.
