La Verne Wachob - Greenhorn Valley view – May 20, 2004 - By Greg Hood, The Greenhorn Valley View - Two influential, long-time valley residents passed away last week. Helen Defoyd and LaVerne Wachob, both veterans of valley schools passed away within three days of each other. Defoyd on May 13 and Wachob on May 16. Defoyd, along with her husband Paul, began teaching in Rye in 1950. She retired in 1986. Wachob started as secretary at Rye in 1954. She retired in 1987. Both women taught at Rye when kindergarten through 12th grades were in one building. That building is now the Rye Carriage House Apartments and TR's Country Store. The two women both finished out their careers at Craver Middle School in Colorado City. Defoyd and Wachob influenced the lives of two generations of students during their tenures in Valley schools. Greenhorn Valley View general manager Virginia Hood remembers both ladies fondly. "Helen was teaching when I was in school and she taught both of my boys," she said. "LaVerne's daughter Jacque was a dear friend of mine in High School. I spent lots of time at their house, and Jacque spent lots of time at mine", Hood remembers. "LaVerne was like a second mother to me and several other friends felt the same way too." Hood also remembers when both the Defoyds and the Wachobs supported her through a tough time during her senior year at Rye. "LaVerne and (husband) Jack Wachob, Helen and Paul Defoyd and many of my friends and my family were there to get me through", Hood stated. "There were lots of small crises and decisions that they helped us all get through. They were always there. I hear stories from many former students who feel the same way I do.” Both women are remembered for their winning personalities, loving ways and the countless ways they contributed to the schools and the communities. They are also remembered as encouragers who supported and mentored hundreds of students through the years. “These two ladies will always have a special place in all of our hearts,” Hood said.
