Verona was born on Jan. 21 1932 in Bountiful on a very cold winter day to her parents Beatrice Fullmer and George Cotton Wood Jr. She is the youngest of eight siblings and loved being in a “big” family on the farm. She graduated from Davis High School. She was a true believer in the gospel teachings of the LDS Church and loved to attend when she was well and able. She was a sunbeam teacher for many, many years and loved being around children. She said for years she always wanted a family big enough to fill a whole row in a church pew. She always cherished her and Jim’s wonderful garden filled with her favorite flowers, herbs and yummy vegetables and raspberries, which she took and made the most delicious homemade raspberry jam every June and July. She just loved having a growing family and she enjoyed spending time with “all” of her grandchildren when she could. She was one of the most loving and compassionate people you could have ever met and proved thousands of times that her love was unlike any other. Her hugs were warmest and her smile sweetest. She may not be in sight anymore, but she will remain ingrained in our minds and our hearts for eternity by those who loved and cherished her the absolute most. Till we meet again.
