Obituary for LaVerne Katherine Tomaso

LaVerne Katherine Tomaso nee Blake, age 84. Beloved wife of the late Richard G. Tomaso; loving mother of Rick Tomaso, Carla (Ronald) Weil, Jon (Amy) Tomaso, Suzy (William) Bradford, and the late Katherine Tomaso; cherished sister of Marion Blake, Geri (Tom) Flynn, Maureen and Michael Blake; treasured Gramma of Maddy and Ellie Weil, Jennifer, Luke and Benjamin Bradford, and Michael, Ryan and Ava Tomaso; and dear friend to so many. LaVerne was born in Chicago in 1936 and spent the majority of her life in Oak Park, throughout which she was an integral member of the Saint Giles Family Mass Community for nearly 50 years. LaVerne was a lover of music, babies, gardens, all things sweet – especially chocolate –, sun-drenched days, and most of all, her dear family. She will be missed beyond measure and always cherished.
