She was an avid reader and loved to write poetry. She was well known for her “open door policy”, culinary skills, sense of humour, warm smile and her wonderful loquaciousness. No Service by request. There will be a celebration of Vera’s life and legacy later this summer in Cranbrook at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Date and time to be announced.
