"Her Life was a Blessing,
Her Memory a Treasure,
We loved her Beyond Words, and
Will Miss her Beyond Measure."
She was an amazingly beautiful person, dearly loved, a very special Aunt.

Vera, our dear sister- in- law, was a very special sweet, and caring Christian lady. We have great memories of visiting in Wiley and Vera’s home with family reunions of long ago. We so long for those times again when all the family shared fellowship and happiness together. The laughter, food, fellowship and fun were very memorable to all who were privileged to be there. Vera and Wiley were a beautiful loving couple who loved their family. She was a very pretty lady, too. We loved her mannerisms and her laugh. She will be remembered as a soft-spoken, kind, and loving sister-in-law who we loved very much. She is the last of the Sewell generation of mother's Sewell family to pass from this earth. RIP our dear Vera, till we meet again. Our Deepest Sympathy and love to all the family. So sorry we cannot be in attendance (due to covid) for the memorial service. Love to all, Don and Margaret Wall.

I remember when I first started attending at Bridgeview. Wiley and Vera welcomed me with open arms. Such a sweet family always. My prayers are with all of you during this time.
