Vernetta Rosemary Northcutt (1945 – 2014)
At South Sacramento Hospital beloved mother and educator Vernetta Rosemary Northcutt passed early evening on June 3, after a valiant two plus year battle against pancreatic cancer. Her son Will and oldest nephew Robert whom loved her dearly, were with her throughout her final hours.
She moved to Elk Grove eight years ago after living in Vallejo, where she was known and respected for over 20 years as a teacher in the VUSD, spending the vast majority of her 25 plus year educational career with the VUSD as a Vallejo High School teacher. Loved and appreciated by a great number of her students, Ms. Northcutt was well known for her devotion to teaching students to reach beyond their potential and be all that they could be using well developed educational tools and creative methods.
She also fought to reclaim the dignity denied her by that same school district. Read the story of her travails here.
A memorial for her past students and close friends will be held on July 27 at the Vallejo (CA) Community Center on 225 Amador St. between the hours of 3 and 8 p.m.
If you are interested in assisting with the memorial in any way please contact her son Will Flynn at AnubanUT2@gmail.com or any member of the Ruth Love family.
Thanks to all that truly cared about her and treated her with the respect she deserved. Let us rejoice, for she is truly at peace in the company of the Lord.
