She was pleased in her heart and soul with her husband and loved spending as much time as possible with him. Even when she was diagnosed with her illness, she continued to take care of her husband until she was no longer able. Vernelle loved her family as well, and wanted them to know that. Vernelle was preceded in death by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Miles, Sr., sisters, Patricia Ann Rucker and Thomasine Burbridge, brother, David Ellison Miles, aunts, Connie Cromarty, Estelle Brown, Fannie Evans, Mabel Miles and Geneva Miles, uncles, Hampton Miles, Garland Miles and Buddy Brown.
