As we retrace the footprints of Veronica Yvette Crow we can only give thanks for the many lives she touched and enriched along life’s journey.
Veronica began her journey of life on February 5, 1970, in Prescott, Arkansas as the daughter of Terry Crow and Darlene Hughes.
She was baptized accepted Christ as her personal Lord and Savior. She united with New Mt. Zion Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev. Quintin Radford.
Veronica was educated in Neveda County and was a 1989 graduate of Prescott High School where she excelled as a student. She grew up to be a loving, fun spirited and intelligent young woman. Her outgoing personality channeled her into being one of the most popular girls at Prescott High School.
Her friends remember her as being the life of the party…..all the time. She loved the camera and the camera loved her. If there were a camera around Veronica would quickly position in of her memorable poses, but her fun signature pose was always to “show some leg”.
The Lord blessed her with three healthy children to raise, love and nurture. She took her role as mother seriously. She worked hard and made many sacrifices to take care of her family. Her children were her pride and joy. She taught them to respect themselves and to follow the golden rule --to treat others as they would be treated.
Veronica was a faithful and dedicated employee of Courtyard Gardens where she worked for over 10 years. She possessed a nurturing and loving spirit that transcended above her job title.
During all of her 42 seasons, she made friends across race, gender, faith and creed; she freely offered wise counsel, gave generously to those in need and inspired everyone who crossed her path.
Family, as well as friends, will miss her sense of humor, smile and love, but will never forget her spirit and compassion.
Although Veronica lived what some may call a short life, those who were touched by her understood that the quality of her existence far exceeded the quantity of time many of us spent with her.
Veronica was welcomed home by her father Terry (1989), cousin Katlin Lidge (2011), nephew Kynan Barrett (2011), and grandmother Gennive V. Cunningham (2011).
