Versa was a member and secretary of Immanuel Baptist Church in Blue Springs, Mo. She was a cake decorator and floral designer and furnished cakes and flowers for several friends and family weddings and other occasions. Versa was active in Cub and Boy Scouts. She enjoyed going with her family to car, truck and farm shows all over the country and hosting events at their farm. Her greatest pleasure was time spent with her grandchildren.
