Veronica was a long time resident of her beloved Island of Trinidad before she migrated to the United States with her granddaughter Michelle in September of 1991, where she settled in with her first Born Donna Timothy. Veronica was a fighter and with her strong will and determination she was able to fight Parkinson disease for many years. She fought the fight for as long as she could while continuing with a life of normalcy cooking, cleaning, and assisting in raising her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Even when Parkinson’s taught that it would over power her Veronica was able to persevere with that witty and sharp mind of hers. Her favorite pastime was playing Bingo, often winning many prizes at the nursing home for her great grands. She also enjoyed listening to her grandchildren talk about their day, giving them advice and telling the younger ones stories about their parents while she was raising them.
Veronica was the Matriarch, the glue that held everything together her love and her memories
will forever live in the hearts of everyone she touched. She will always be our “Vero” and “Grandma
Vero”.
