Thank you so much, Wendy, for posting the sweet picture of Verna with your granddaughter, as well as your beautiful words about her. There are many of us in Minnesota who loved her dearly.

Veronica “Verna” was the 3rd of seven kids born to Mathilda and George Baller. As a young woman she worked alongside her dad in the armory, in St Paul. She later married Bernard Marier and moved to California. They had three boys: Donald, Harold, and Jack, with many grandkids born of Harold. Verna was a gifted artist, expressing herself in her paintings, a talent that she acquired from her father, who was also very creative. She was sweet spirited and loving, and she loved to laugh! She had such an infectious laugh, even thinking of it now brings a smile to my face.

Gram was a loving lady who always made me feel cared for and cherished. When she visited us in Massachusetts on two occasions, she enjoyed her family members that were adopted when their mother passed (me and my 3 siblings). Gram was an absolute delight when she went with us to Canada! She told me she wanted to adopt us, which made me feel so loved. She shared pictures of family when we finally reconnected in 1996. I have a painting in my living room that she lovingly sent to me and my granddaughter also has a painting ...she was such a beautiful artist with such great talent. She gave me an afghan she had knitted or crocheted herself. Was there anything she couldn't do? She will be missed. I am so saddened to hear of her passing. This is a photo of Gram and Laura, my granddaughter. They adored each other.

My dear aunt Verna certainly deserved more of an obituary than just her date of birth and death. I’ll write one for her myself. Unfortunately for her she made the mistake of marrying a jackass, and I know she wouldn’t disagree with me....though she probably would cover her ears at me saying it out loud. Outside of that sad error in judgment she was a kind hearted person who was generous to a fault. She loved her family dearly, worked hard all her life, was a talented artist, had a fun and engaging sense of humor, and even at the age of 96 had the lilting laugh of a school girl. I love you, Aunt Verna! You made me giggle every time we chatted. You are missed.
