During her life she followed her husband, with the military, to many locations including New York, Louisiana, Indiana and Florida. She worked for Miles Laboratory for 45 years and then "retired" to start a manufactured housing dealership, Oxbow Homes, with her husband.
Upon her second retirement, she and her husband enjoyed many years together in their adopted state of Florida. Vera enjoyed decorating, cards with friends and thrived on family time over a hot dinner. She was a remarkable amatur photographer, with her granddaughters and great grandchildren as her favorite subjects. Vera organized hundreds of photo albums that displayed her talent and family. She continued to enjoy traveling, eating out and visits with her family after her retirement. Vera will be remembered for her sharp wit, one-line zingers and deep heartfelt love of family. She will be sorely missed by her many loved ones.
