Veronica SCHACHTEL

SCHACHTEL, Veronica (Verna)


Veronica Katherine Schachtel passed away peacefully on Tuesday, October 13, 2015, after several years battling cancer. Her loving husband Joe was by her side right to the end.

Verna is survived by her husband Joe, of 57 years, and her three children: Brenda, Nina and Lloyd as well as her six grandchildren: Rob, Ryland, Miranda, Frazer, Avery and Delaney.

Verna was a lover of all things musical – singing, dancing, playing the guitar. She and her husband Joe were known at family dances for the unique country jig only the two of them knew how to do.

Verna loved her family very much, and gave her love and energy to them for as long as she was able. Her greatest love, however, was for her God, Jehovah. She devoted many hours each month, for as long as her strength allowed, to the door to door ministry, sharing with others the Bible’s promise that God will soon restore this earth to a paradise – and will even resurrect those who have died.

A memorial service will be held on Sunday, October 25, 2015 at 3 pm at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 1247 6th Ave, Hope, BC.
