  • Veronica was a very happy person. When we would visit our grandma, most of the time we visited her. She would tell us about movies and stories in general and by the time we left we had a grin on our faces and were laughing. She and my grandma were table buddies, so they quickly became friends. She will be missed very much

  • TO ALL THE KISKA FAMILES I/We have many memories from our childhood years right up to this last year when our Dad, Ben Kovacs& Verna were in Notre Dame together. THEY were Hungarian childhood friends that grew up together & along with Verna’s brothers & sisters remained Dad’s lifelong friends. Funny how their children & us remained lifelong friends as well. When Dad entered ND, his first comforts were speaking Hungarian to Verna. He didn’t ALWAYS remember her, but they had a good time. May she be at peace & may they Still be speaking Hungarian & laughins ALL TOGETHER NOW IN PARADISE… Julia Kovacs Cade Benjie & Pat Kovacs All The Kovacs Family Jim & Rose & Elsie
