Veronica Neyens, age 78 of Perham, MN, passed away on Sunday, March 28, 2021.
Veronica was born November 20th, 1942 on their family farm in Nobles County, MN. She lived around Southwest, MN with her parents James V. Lanners and Mary A. (Lentz) Lanners and her two brothers Robert and Urban.
While living as a teen in Currie MN, she met William Neyens. He joined the service and wrote to her when he was serving in the Air Force throughout the late 50's. Shortly after he returned home, they married on June 24, 1961. The same year she got a job at Campbell Soup to buy Bill a gun cabinet and she continued working there for 25 years. He worked in the same company as a truck driver.
In 1964, their family grew when Veronica gave birth to their only child, James Neyens. James married Kelly Horn in 1991 and gave Veronica three grandchildren: Blair, Hunter and Tanner Neyens. Her grandchildren later gave her two great grandchildren, Oliver (Hunter’s Son) and Robert James, (Blair's Son).
Bill and Veronica spent 42 love-filled years together sharing a home in Worthington and Fulda, MN until Bill's passing in 2003. She spent her most recent years enjoying many memories with friends and family.
Veronica's hobbies included cooking and watching her favorite shows. She was a kind and charismatic woman with a wonderfully goofy side. She had the ability to make all others around her smile. Known for her huge heart and strong faith, she credits it all to God. She attended church every week and read her daily prayer book and bible. She passed in the morning on Palm Sunday and is now home with the Lord, her family, husband Bill, son Jim, and her dog Cricket. She will be greatly missed by all those who had the pleasure of sharing a life with her.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, A Private Family Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Currie, MN with interment at Calvary Cemetery in Currie. The service will be live streamed.
