To Verona's Family,
Thank you for sharing Verona with us. My Grandmother was Hannah Callister. Verona was the best neighbor in the world and truest friend to our
Grandma. She was so full of spunk and enthusiasm and I simply know she made Grandma Cal's life such a better one. I also was Joe's lab partner in science at Spanish Fork High. He was so glad to have Verona as his Mom and was very proud of his strong supportive family.

I wanted you to know how much I have always loved your mom. She was always fun to know and seemed interested in what was going on in my life. Growing up between her and Mary Grace was a good experience and I have always been blessed to have grown up in the ward area that I did with the people I had around me that i felt cared for me.
My heart is with you at this time and I hope you know that many others loved Verona.

I have so many wonderful memories of a hard working lady who loved her family and friends. My daughter Lindi and I worked with her at the ball park and enjoyed every minute. Love to all of you who are left with a wonderful memory of a great kindhearted lady. Sorry I will be out of town.
Love Geniel

"Big V" was an amazing lady and will surely be missed by the S.F softball family. She meant so much to my sister and I, and we will miss her dearly. Her "lucky pennies," she would rub during softball games for good luck, meant so much to so many young girls who received them. Thank you for everything you did for me and inspiring me to be a better person! We will miss you "Big V"

JaNell & Steven

You two have been through alot of grief and I am sorry for your loss. It is really hard to not have your mother here, but I know they are happy .

Verona was one of my favorite people. I think it is because she reminded me of my own mother.

I pray for the Lord to bless and sustain you.

Love, Carol

I loved Verona! She lived next door to my Grandma Hannah Callister for as long as I remember. Every visit I made to Grandma's house included a visit with Verona. She'd walk into the house first thing in the morning, just to check in and visit for a few minutes. We would go visit her at work too. Grandma would take me to the bakery to get a cookie and to look at the cakes. A few years I was

Verona was a good friend for many years since we lived in the same ward. She was so friendly and fun to be around. My son, Bret worked at Wil's Foodland when she worked at the bakery. I remember her collecting cans , and I remember her working at the snack shack at the ball park and also at Stone Drug. Since her health hasn't been good the past while, I feel she is blessed to be able to go

Janell and Family,

I am so sorry to hear of your mothers passing. I loved it when she came into my classroom with the Utah Quarter and talked to my students about it! Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
