Vera most loved being a grandmother and hanging out with her grandkids. She was very proud of all of them. Her work interests included secretarial duties, welding assistant, and construction. She also pursued a career in cosmetology and as a seamstress. Sewing, crafts, and gardening were her favorite past times. She was an excellent seamstress. She made all of her children’s clothes when they were young. She was very talented at numerous crafts. She liked to paint Christmas bulbs for family and she wrapped gifts that looked like they were picked straight out of a magazine. She loved gardening and sharing what she grew or made with friends and family.
When she wasn’t hanging out with her grandchildren she loved spending time with her friends going out dancing, bowling, rock hunting, and searching for antiques. She was very generous with her time. She volunteered at various charities in Pocatello. If she could help someone out she would.
Vera will be cremated and her ashes laid to rest alongside those of her mother.
