Hello, I am your long lost step aunt. My name is Lari Barbara Witt and I am the granddaughter of said Verne Lister.I don't know much about Nora except Nora passed on a few years ago I think in 2005. She has 2 neices who knew best about her.
I am the daughter of Laurance L. (born under the name of LaChance, changed to Lister then to Witt, Verne's only child. He too passed on in 1998.
Verne married my grandmother under the assumed name of LaChance in 1921. My father was born Dec. 10, 1922. Maude LaChance died in 1922. Laurance was raised then by his grandparents on Modoc Point outside of Chiloquin Oregon. When his grandmother Laura Ball Witt died, in 1924, my father and his grandfather John Witt moved to Klamath where John lived until his death.
If you want to know more, I can and will help. I am what is left of the family historians.
