After retiring, Vera and Andy enjoyed traveling the world, ballroom dancing everywhere they could. Friends from The Voyagers club and National Smooth Dancers shared enormous pleasure over many years. Vera sustained a friendly and kind heart and a mean Scrabble streak to her last days. She is survived by her daughter Susan, daughter-in-law Carol Ushijima-Funtsch, and 4 generations of nieces and nephews. With an amazing family of friends who all loved her dearly, Vera was greatly admired for her strength and positive attitude.
