Birth: 1918
Death: May 16, 1966

Veronica Welch is buried in Metfern Cemetery on the grounds of Metropolitan State Hospital in Waltham, MA. along with abt. 350 other people that are also buried there, most with only markers a number and a letter P or C wihch stood for catholic or protestant.

Veronica had one of only three real stones there and
With a little research I was able to find a history for her. She was the daughter of James A. & Mary Doherty Welch from Leominster, Mass. She was admitted to the Walter S. Fernald State School for the mentally retarded at the age of 14 and died in 1966 at the age of 47 years old still residing at the school.

Her full name is Mary Veronica according to my information and she also had one brother born abt. 1920 named James F. Welch also in Leominster, Ma. Veronica died from congestive heart failure due to Kyphoscoliosis(curvature of the spine). Other conditions were mental retardation and pneumonia. We did not know her at all. We came upon her during some genealogical research and decided to put her here and show her someone cares. May she rest in peace.
