Verlie attended school in Weesatche and Goliad, Texas.  She married Roland Koenig and raised a family in Yorktown, Texas where she dedicated her life to children and family while sharing her gifts as a talented seamstress, working in the upholstery business and continuing to give her most precious time to her cherished family.  Some of Verlie’s most treasured things in life included taking care of others, always providing the best food to anyone who was hungry, giving honest advice you didn’t always know you needed, dancing, George Strait and the Dallas Cowboys.  Above all, she loved Jesus and her family.
