Veronica "Connie" was born on April 12, 1916 in Isle, MN to Michael and Matilda (Masog) Winter. She married Peter W. Sufka on October 19, 1938 at St. Johns Catholic Church in Foley. She was later remarried to Stanley Patrias on June 2, 1962 at St. Hedwig's Catholic Church in Holdingford. She was a member of St. Hedwig's Catholic Church, and the Christian Mothers. Veronica "Connie" was not just a mother-extraordinaire, she was a master gardener, owner and operator of a hardware store and resort, an angel of mercy, and a homemaker. But she was more than all of this, and she will be missed dearly.
