Vera and Marcos were married for more than 60 years, and shared what Vera always called a “Big Love.” They owned and operated and worked side-by-side at Little Pizzarena (In Salinas) for more than 30 Beautiful years. After retiring they moved to Madera in the late 90s. Vera was a Godly woman and Devoted to her Heavenly Father.

She Loved her Family with her whole Heart and Soul. She was a Wonderful Wife, Amazing Mother, Loving Grandmother, Great-Grandmother and Sister. Vera had a Heart of Gold and a Generous Spirit.

Vera most enjoyed spending holidays and special time with her family. There was nothing she loved more than having all of her “ducks in a row.” She enjoyed cooking and baking, and of course was always the last one to sit down. She was famous for her carrot cakes and Christmas cookies. Vera enjoyed country music, dancing and camping as well.

Vera will Live in Our Heart’s Forever. She was Our Angel here on Earth and is now one in Heaven. Sleep with the Angels Precious MaMa.
