March 12, 1938 — April 2, 2024


Verna Nell Steffens Sorensen, 86, of Springville Utah, peacefully returned to her Creator on Tuesday April 2, 2024. She was born March 12, 1938 in Springville, Utah to LaVon Christain Steffens and Mary Nelsena Kendall Steffens.  She was married to LeMond Arnold Sorensen (Lee) on November 14, 1958. Their marriage was solemnized in the Salt Lake City Temple on August 9, 1963. He preceded her in death on July 8, 2019.

Verna was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Verna loved everything crafty. She was an accomplished seamstress, an outstanding quilter, and arranged silk flowers for any occasion.
