Vera Virginia Vasicek Novotny, 86, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, has left her mark on this world as she was called home on Wednesday, March 6, 2019. Vera was born March 22, 1932, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. She was cherished by her parents Chrales Vasicek and Helen Josephine Dolezal Vasicek. Vera enjoyed her childhood with her loving siblings Evelyn and Eugene.
Vera was swept off her feet in 1951 by Paul Novotny and his Taylorcraft. They married in 1952 and enjoyed 51 years together. They had two sons and three grandchildren, to whom Vera was especially devoted. She always encouraged and supported their travels and education.
She was an avid antiquer and expert bargain hunter. Vera loved to decorate and dabbled in crafts, but by far, her favorite pastime was her flower garden. She was also proud to have completed the confirmation program at St. Francis of Assisi, where she was a faithful member. Vera is preceded in death by husband, Paul Novotny; her parents, Charles and Helen Vasicek; brother Eugene Vasicek; sister Evelyn Ellsworth; brother-in-law George Pellar; brother-in-law Earl (Bud) Ellsworth; and son Michael Novotny.
