Veldeane Marie Wolery, 68, was born on January 3, 1950 in Denver, Colorado to William and Marjorie Karnik and entered eternal life on January 1, 2019.
She was raised in Eaton, Colorado, where she lived with Charles and Clara Cox. She graduated from Eaton High School in 1969.

That was just the start for Veldeane, as she was a daycare provider for over 25 years and helped raise 30-plus children. She had a heart of gold, where she was loved and admired by everyone who knew her. She had a love for elephants, enjoyed reading, and family was huge to her.
