“To help a person - child, youth, or adult – actualize his or her full human potential is both an awesome and glorious responsibility.” ~ Verona Wangler OP

Sister Verona’s gift and source of happiness was in relationships. One of her admirers remarked: “Sr. Verona is someone you can tell God hand delivered to this planet. She is kind and gentle and inspired me to seek the Lord.” A college student noted their relationship was one of equals and friends with the same “quirky sense of humor” in spite of the 74-year age gap between them.

Sister Verona was the embodiment of that joyful dedicated spirit she admired long ago as a child in West Branch when she came to know the Dominican Sisters. We who knew and loved her will miss her even as we celebrate her long and grace-filled-life.
