Vera was born in Shell Valley, Manitoba on Feb 9,1928. She finished school and took her first job near Nepawa, MB. During this time she met her future husband, Ken. They were married in Winnipeg on Dec 24, 1946. After moving around the small towns of Manitoba, they finally settled in Winnipeg with their 3 small children. After Ken retired in 1989, they moved to Sicamous, BC.
Vera was well known for her artistic abilities and passion for nature. A gentle soul, she was a kind and caring to all. She was very artistic in all that she did, from knitting little finger puppets for her grand kids, to gardening, recycling, sewing, refinishing furniture, rummage sales and collecting rocks from all her travels. After moving to Sicamous, she joined the local Brush and Pallet Club to pursue her interest in painting. She was also an enthusiastic volunteer in the Sicamous United Church Thrift Shop and attended worship at Sicamous United. There she met many friends in the community.
You are invited to come and honour Vera. A reception will follow the funeral and graveside service.
