Vera Ethel Lee

Information to T.Mason on 2 Jan 2014 by Susan Henson. "Vera had a brain aneurysm on a Friday and was flown to Harbor view hospital in a helicopter from Monroe, Washington. I went to the hospital to see her and she was struggling to stay conscious but they sedated her so she would not pull at all the wires and tubes she was hooked up too. Later that night I went back to the ranch took care of the horses and foaled out one of our mares. When I went to the hospital the next day and waited for her to have surgery, it all looked good by Saturday evening. Later that night she had more bleeding in her head and was pronounced brain dead by morning. Family came to see her and pay their respects."

"Vera was a great seamstress; she worked packing apples in Cashmere; she played piano and was a fabulous cook. Vera even worked part time at Kenmore Elementary school. She loved having friends and family over and wouldn't let anyone go without eating. All my friends loved to come over for dinner. Vera was one of the strongest and most independent woman I have ever known and was kind. Vera was petite with light red hair. Vera told how she would ride to school in a covered wagon with other children and the wagon was heated with a kerosene lamp. Vera was the oldest of her siblings and she out lived them all, including all except two of her children from her first marriage, one of which died less than 3 months after Vera, leaving one son that is also now deceased. She claim it was do to her clean living no smoking, no drinking etc."
