Veronica (Labell) Jerome, 85, Monkton


MONKTON — Veronica (Labell) Jerome, known as “Von,” left us at age 85 in the early morning hours of August 16, 2019.

She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, sister-in-law and friend to many. Heaven got another beautiful angel.

In 1953 she married her husband Richard “Dick” Jerome, who predeceased her two months after their 60th wedding anniversary. Together they raised five children.

She leaves behind Judy (Pete) Bissonette, David (Jackie) Jerome, Jane Coffin, Paul (Alicia) Jerome and son-in-law Ralph Lang. She also leaves her grandchildren, Heidi and Andy Bissonette; Shawn Jerome, Ashley (Chris) Kiernan, Christopher Jerome, Jesse, Michael and Jake Jerome, Katy Bean, Angela and Jeremy Putnam; fourteen great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren; and her in-laws Donald and Mary Jerome (Vergennes), and James and Sharon Jerome (Arizona).

Her husband Dick, daughter Debbie Lang, son-in-law David Coffin and grandson Jody Cousino predeceased her.

There will be no calling hours. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, August 24, at the Federated Church in Bristol. A burial will follow at Mount St. Joseph Cemetery for Von and Dick. The family will be gathering immediately following at the Bristol American Legion Post No. 19.

The family would like to express a special thank you to all of the staff at Helen Porter Nursing Home for their wonderful care and kindness. In lieu of flowers please donate to “The End of Life Services,” P.O. Box 772, Middlebury, VT 05753. To send online condolences to her family please visit ◊
