Ms. Vera gave her to Christ an early age where she joined Ebenezer missionary Baptist Church. She was  a faithful member until her health failed.

Ms. Vera was a strong, independent, caring person. A person never had to guess what she was thinking or how she felt about something because she always said exactly what was on her mind.

Ms. Vera was a beloved mother, grandmother, and great grandmother until sweet Jesus called her home. She took her last breath of life early Thursday morning, September 17, 2020 at her home in Clio, SC.
