Veneta Garrett Windler October 11, 1922 - June 25, 2012

Veneta was born in Kansas and lived most of her life in Ft. Dodge, Iowa. She worked for several years as a pastry cook at the Hormel Meat Packing Company. Veneta & Russ (her husband) retired from Hormel in Fort Dodge, Iowa and moved to Sebring, FL in 1986. They joined the St. John United Methodist Church where they found a whole new family and the loving support Veneta needed during Russ' illness, his death in 2004, and the years that followed. She will be remembered for so many wonderful qualities, among them: her kind manner and warm heart, especially for animals; delicious cooking; a very quick wit; and her unending generosity - especially with her crafts – which she loved sharing with so many of us. Always looking at the positive side, she taught all of us how to endure emotional and physical pain with amazing dignity and grace.
Veneta is survived by her son Colin Livasy and wife Linda of Fieldbrook, CA; granddaughter Amy, 4 great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild; step-son and daughter Tom & Cindy Windler of San Antonio, TX; grandchildren Daniel, Don, Jodee and Tamiey; 8 great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. She also leaves behind her dear friend, Alice Warobiew.
In addition to Russ, Veneta was preceded in death by her parents and all her brothers and sisters.
Veneta's family would like to acknowledge all those who tried to make her final days as comfortable as possible and her "church family" for their loving care and concern.
A viewing will be at the Stephenson-Nelson Funeral Home on Monday, July 2, 2012 from 2-4. Services are Tuesday, July 3, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. at St. John United Methodist Church, 3214 Grand Prix Drive in Sebring.
Donations in Veneta's name may be made to the Highlands County Humane Society, Good Shepherd Hospice or a charity of one's choice.
Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to:
Stephenson-Nelson Funeral Home
Sebring, FL.
