Obituary of Veronica Elizabeth DiLaura
Veronica E. DiLaura passed away peacefully on May 12, 2022, after a courageous fight against Leiomyosarcoma. Veronica was born September 17, 1945 to the late George and Evangeline Moses in Charleston, West Virginia. She grew up in Grosse Pointe, Michigan and graduated from Grosse Pointe High School in 1963. She married Kenneth A. DiLaura in 1972 and together they raised 2 children in Grosse Pointe Woods. Veronica had a huge heart and was happiest when she could make others happy; she was an exceptional cook, a cookie baker extraordinaire, a master of Notre Dame tailgates, and a beautiful artist and seamstress. Most importantly, her kind spirit made the world a better place. She was strong, selfless, generous, and loyal to anyone lucky enough to call her family or friend. We will all miss her more than words can say. Veronica was a proud mother to Brian C. DiLaura (Jackie), and Christina M. DiLaura. Nothing brought her more joy than being “Nonnie” to her grandchildren, Nicholas and Emma. She is also survived by her loving siblings George Moses (Melanie), Rick Moses (Nancy), and Cathy Labash (Chuck); and many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
