Adored wife of Jan; beloved mother of Barbara (Justin) and Matthew (Rachel); cherished grandmother ("Babi") of Jackson and Tyler; treasured daughter of Gabriela and sister of Jitka (Palo).

Our deepest condolences to Verka's family. She was a great listener and always knew how to cheer you up - using her great sense of humour. We feel privileged that she called us friends.

I would like to express my condolences to Vera's family. Vera was always a breath of fresh air; her smile and sweet nature made her easily approachable, and she readily jumped in to help if you needed advice or a piece of her great knowledge. Vera was a lovely woman. May she be at peace.
