It is with profound sadness to announce Vera’s passing on December 5. 2023. She will be greatly missed by her loving sister-in-law, Veronica Torma, and her family in Israel. Pre-deceased by her parents and 2 sisters and her beloved husband for 55 years, Peter.
Both her parents perished in a concentration camp. Veronika was four years old when her mother was taken from their home by the nazis. She and her two sisters were later found on the streets wandering because they couldn’t go home to their mother. She grew up in a Jewish orphanage. Her great sorrow was that she could not remember her mother’s face.
She came to the USA and there she met Peter. They married and had the most wonderful loving marriage for 55 years. Veronika was a loving and devoted wife. They did everything together. Both enjoyed traveling, walking in the park in Shaker Lakes, going to concerts and to the museum.
Vera was a wonderful, kind and loving person. She possessed a good sense of humor and above all was a loving and devoted wife. May she rest in peace.
Her sister-in-law, Veronica, would like to express her great gratitude to Joan Saks, who took loving care of Vera, to the Jewish hospice service and her social worker Sarah Axner Gilmore, to her Jewish Family Service social worker, Hanna Doles and Vera's caregiver, Tiffany.
Graveside funeral services will be held at Mt. Sinai Cemetery, 6749 White Rd, Mayfield Village, OH 44143 on Thursday, December 7, 2023, at 2 PM.
