My brother, Barry married Annette, Veva's neice. I remember when Barry and Annette built their home and Myles and Veva came for a visit. Myles, Lloyd and my Dad, would putter around the house. But, when Veva came in, you knew she had arrived. She was laughing and talking all the time. She always had that wonderful smile. Veva had a way of making you feel more like family then friends. Veva will truly be missed. Love, Jan & Kathy Jones
So many memories,I especially remember Moms hospitality for all i.e. when Carl and Peter Voegel and John Heselton came to our farm deer hunting, moms baked goods and coffee were much more important than bagging a deer.Fun times!!!MOM how proud you are of your brothers and listening to those conversations with Uncles Abe,Lloyd and Harley and families,the humor at times,outstanding.Mom,you and Jane Brady,a friendship to be envied by all, I always enjoyed listening to Jane and Veva(Mom) converse, share with each other and trust each other so much and to attempt to get Byron and Dad on the same page.(They were stubborn).Your love of the Voegels was fun to observe especially Glenice and her family, so good to each other.Your love of family. Mom you have mentored many and loved by all of us.
Grandma Veva I'll always remember you, our coloring sessions, you taking care of me while I was sick with butter toast, your jar of buttons, the lighted flowers by your fireplace, cat naps on the couch and ALL the fun I had when you were around! I miss you and I hope your spirit never leaves! Love, Blake
Veva was more like a big sister to me, I will always remember the times she and Myles came to stay for a week or two or more, we had so much fun just doing nothing, but enjoying their company, I would be at work during the day, Lloyd and Myles would be building bird houses, or whatever in garage, but at 4PM they made sure they were in the house to watch Judge Joe Wapner, (The Peoples Court). I have dozens of wire coat hangers that Veva knitted yarn on during those visits. I could go on and on. I miss her dearly. Love, Mary Ann
