Vera Kallas of Trumbull, age 97, wife of the late Raymond Kallas, passed away peacefully on July 15, 2012. She was the daughter of the late Jacob and Maria Hendrikson. She is survived by her children Gloria Kallas, Raymond Kallas, Dennis Kallas and Robert Kallas.

Vera was born in Sindi, Estonia. She was the youngest of 12 children – 6 boys and 6 girls. In 1933 she and two of her sisters immigrated to America where a brother and a sister were already living in New York. A couple of years later Vera met and married Raymond Kallas. The marriage lasted for over 50+ years until Raymond's death in 1987. They had four children – Gloria, Raymond, Dennis and Robert. She had nine grandchildren, three great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild who she got to meet shortly before her death. She was an avid cruiser and enjoyed over 40+ cruises during her lifetime. Her favorite activity, however, was being surrounded by all of her family.
