Obituary for Laverne Emma Eddington

November 17, 1922 - September 2, 2017
Austin, Texas | Age 94


Laverne Emma Eddington passed away in Austin, Texas, on September 2, 2017, at the age of 94, surrounded by her children Carlos, Tina, Pamela, and in spirit, her oldest son Francisco. In addition to her children, she is survived by her ex-husband Xavier, son-in-law Richard, daughter-in-law Karen, seven grand-children–Cristobal, Christina, Tristan, Adrian, Rebecca, Mary and Emily–and three great-grandchildren–Isabella, Ellias Ehecatl, and Toby.

She was born November 17, 1922, in Shoals, Indiana to Vernie and Minnie Eddington and grew up in Dayton, Ohio. She moved to New York City to attend the Art Students League of New York. While attending school and working in New York, she met her future husband Xavier Romero. In 1959, they moved to Mexico.

A devoted artist, she excelled in her painting, and through it, inspired us to love, carefully observe the world around us, and find beauty in the everyday flow of life. Through her art, she expressed her most profound thoughts and emotions. She was a role model–independent, hard-working, determined, loyal, creative, intelligent, and fun. She will be missed.

Here's to Laverne! We grieve her parting but celebrate her life. A private ceremony will be scheduled at a later date.
