Veva and Lowell ran the Coffee Cup Cafe for 4 years that was well known for Ruby Goodwin's cinnamon rolls and Vera Smith's fried chicken.
Veva loved a good joke and was the instigator of many. You may have found a rubber snake in your bed(as Lowell did), a ceramics toad in your coffee cup, or a dribble down your chin from the fancy glass with holes cut through.
On January 25th 1985 after 34 & 1/2 years of marriage her husband Lowell passed away after a lengthy illness. After the loss of her husband she worked as a live in care taker for many families around Flagler & Seibert and later in Holyoke and Denver allowing many to stay in their homes longer.

Veva continued working in home health care for the elderly until Gerald required more care at home. When both Veva and Gerald became ill they entered the Lincoln Community Nursing Home in October of 2010 and was there until the death of Gerald in Nov of 2011 after 22 years of marriage.
After Gerald's death Veva moved back to Flagler and was a resident at Aspen Leaf Assisted Living until she became ill and re entered the Lincoln Community Nursing Home. She was well loved by all the staff and always had a hand to hold or a kiss on the cheek when needed.
