Obits2014In 2014, we lost more than 60 people with ties to Verona. Many of those listed below were still living in town at the time of their death, often after decades of residence. A few had moved to other parts of the world, but their families and friends had asked that they be remembered as Veronans.

We invite you to reflect again on their lives, and what they brought to our community.
