  1. So sorry to hear this news Minto family. My memories of Vera
    About 33 years ago a woman answered an ad for a Nanny. She was moving here from Pennsylvania. Her resume was perfect so I checked out all her references before I interviewed her so I could hire her if the meeting went well. She didn’t want to accept the offer because she had another interview the next day. That next day happened to be the day of the October 1987 freak snowstorm but she still made it to her other meeting. She called afterwards to accept our offer, even though the other family offered her more money. She liked our family more. For 12 years Vera (or as Jesse called her Dera) took care of Matthew and Jesse. She took them to baseball practice, swimming lessons and anything else I asked of her. She called a couple of weeks ago to let us know she was having surgery. Though she expressed to Paul and I that everything was going to be ok, I knew deep down she was calling to say goodbye. Rest peacefully dear Vera.

  2. All my thoughts and love are with the family at this time! Aunt Vera is in heaven and surely has the grace of God! She looked after all her older sisters who have passed before her and I know they welcome Vera with open arms. There could not be a more generous and loving ‘youngest sister’ to all of her sisters ,brothers , Mother and Father! Aunt Vera always found the time to visit – care for them when they were sick and try to lift their spirits. God has Aunt Vera in Heaven this I know and we will miss her. I am thankful she cared enough about all her family and would try to keep us all together with planning and organizing of the many family reunions! Rest In Peace Aunt Vera. ❤️ Norma
