Veronica Gertrude Burke Nall
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 12, 1868
Kansas City
Wyandotte County
Kansas, USA
Death: May 10, 1963
Alameda County
California, USA

Veronica was a graduate of the Conservatory of Music in KS or MO. She taught classical piano to the John Nall children. It was here she met and married Robert E. Lee Nall, son of John Nall and Susan Emma Mooney. They were married by a Catholic priest in Glen, Johnson County, KS on February 23, 1895. Robert was 22 and Veronica was 27.

Robert was quite the musician himself. He played the guitar, mandolin, harmonica, and piano. He was also artistic and loved to draw with us.

Pop Nall, as my dad called him, loved children, as he was very kind and patient with me and my siblings when we were young. Gramma "Nanna" Veronica was the same way. And I can only conclude that they were this way because of the tender but strict upbringing they received from their parents.

Robert and Veronica had four children: Lorraine, Katherine, Infant Boy b. Sep. 20, 1904/d. 1904, and Cornelia.
