Verne was a joyful and very socially active Aunt. I always enjoyed playing at the house on Erie and visiting w/ Family at the various family gatherings. I learned alot of the hard european work ethic and im glad to have gotten that in my DNA.... I enjoyed the banter between Grandma Julia and her sister Verne as well as the closeness they shared as sisters always being their for one another. It fortified in me to have that type of relationship with my own siblings and to maintain that approach later when i got married and had my own Wife and kids. I have great respect and always valued Verne's Wisdom. I truly cant say enough of all the fond memories and im grateful to have had the opportunity to be apart of her life as one of her many great nephews and nieces. She will be truly missed. Love the Baldassarra's- Mark, Lyndsay, Ella, Vann, & River

Aunt Verna and my mother Rose Magnone (Paleczna) were not only cousins but also very good friends. Both Nancy and I have good memories of our "Aunt".

Our weekly visits d
Well miss playing cards and singing Polish Christmas Carols with her. A great bowler, elegant Polka dancer, fierce bingo and card player, and a master Christmas no knead bread maker. A lover of animals, small children, and the needy. Loved by all and remembered for her smiling face. At our weekly nursing home visits, Aunt Verne would always end by saying, Thanks for coming and wave goodbye.
Love and kisses, Peg & Dan

Our hearts are broken for the unfortunate loss of our dearest Aunt Vern. She was a strong fighting woman. We lived her dearly and wished to have been able to hold her hand during a critical time in her life as it was coming to an end. Although this pandemic crippled our physical presence we prayed for her recovery, peace and hope daily. M ay all our extended family stay safe during these days.

Aunt Verna was a beautiful person who lived her life to the fullest. She was my moms (Josephine Dlugopolski) best friend and my godmother. I have many fond memories of her visiting our apartment when I was a child. When my mom was in the hospital she would visit and play Polish music to lighten the mood. She will be missed.

Auntie Vern was a loving, selfless, and spunky woman. She was truly an angel on earth, always putting everyone elses needs before her own. She loved to bowl, take trips to Vegas, play cards, bake bread, feed the birds and sing! She made all of her nieces and nephews feel so special, even measuring how tall we were and marking it with masking tape in the kitchen. She was always so proud to hear of any accomplishments we had in school, sports, music, or otherwise, beaming as she listened. I have so many fond memories of spending time at her house around Christmastime, looking in her drum ornaments to find a hershey kiss she had hidden. She loved having family over for a homemade polish meal, and a big glass of 2% milk! Auntie Vern was a treasure, and she will be sorely missed. She was loved by so many.
