Obituary of Veronica Tann

TANN, Veronica Betty (Kroeker)

77 years, passed away at peace on Wednesday, May 13, 2020 at Erie Shores Hospice.

Dear Mother of Mark Dick (Linda), Michelle Hill (Tim) and Christine Palichuk (Wayne). Very proud and adored Gramma of Ashley, Jordan, Melise, Kelsey, Shawn, Jeremy, Damon and the late Demitria. Held dear her time spent as Stepmother of Doug, Dave, Paul and Carolyn Tann.

Dear sister of Rita Harder (late Art), late Dave Kroeker (Anne), late George Kroeker (Elsie), late Ed Kroeker (late Barb) and Hank Kroeker (Margaret).

Veronica poured her heart and soul into her grandchildren’s lives, leaving behind memories of a special closeness and so many fun times together. She will also be remembered fondly by many nephews and nieces. She always took time to catch up on their family lives and they all held a warm place in her heart.

As a very creative woman, Veronica made many beautiful scrapbooks for her grandchildren and crocheted washcloths for whoever she could give them to!

This last year challenged Veronica with various health issues yet she had one of her best years in a long time. Spending time with special long time friends and reconnecting with a few from long ago, this along with anything that involved her grandchildren helped ease the struggles.

Veronica’s battle ended after spending this last month in Hospice. Much appreciation goes out to the staff at Windsor Regional Cancer Unit (many who received her crocheted washcloths!) and the loving hearts and hands at Hospice in Leamington.

A Celebration of Veronica’s Life will be held at a later date.
