MemoriamCollage2015They were our neighbors and our teachers, our former classmates and our friends. They created businesses, watched over our health, served in our houses of worship and looked out for us on the streets of Verona. And as 2015 draws to a close, we are all too aware that they are not here to mark the new year with us.

These 65 people with Verona connections passed away in 2015. We invite you to reflect again on their contributions to our community:

Mauris Jackson, seen here with former Principal Frank Albano, served Laning Avenue School for many years.
