My deepest sympathy on the death of Verona. I worked with her at Hillview Health Care Center. She was a fabulous caring person. She spent many hours working with the dementia patients. Her soft-spoken voice was so calming. She had a gift for getting residents to reminisce. Often I could hear much laughter and singing going on during the activities. Verona and her husband were a Godsend to our facility. Rest in peace.

Dear, dear Verona! Another angel at heart has joined God's kingdom. I served on a number of ministries at First Congregational Church with Verona. Her calm, soft spoken words carried a lot of weight during discussions. She was a great listener! I will never forget her and Cal coming to see me in the hospital after an operation. Her beautiful smile, her giving heart. They will be greatly missed!💖☺. Sympathy at the great loss, but God's huge gain, to the Helming family. Peace to you all!
