Vera Brasser (Paulus)
Vera Brasser of Port Franks passed away in her 77th year, on Tuesday January 30, 2018 at Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital due to complications resulting from her prior strokes. Vera struggled with numerous strokes in the last two years, prior to her passing.
Vera was a woman who gave her opinion and her love in equal measure. Always a sharp looker, Vera enjoyed feeding her family and never visited without bringing something special for everyone. Vera had a knack for often bringing something you needed and didn’t even realize it.
An artist at heart, Vera’s family will always remember her for having the perpetual camera in her hand.
Vera’s greatest pride were her two great-granddaughters Keira and Rain. Her love for them knew no bounds and their visits were always a source of great joy. She loved animals and never failed to stop to pet every dog she met. Vera's own faithful dog, Sky, was her “baby”. In recent years, the birds and squirrels that visited the many bird feeders outside the living room window, were her constant source of pleasure.
Vera is survived by her husband Robert “Bob” Brasser who cared for her every need for the last three years of her life, her daughter Vera Chladek, son Peter Chladek (and Mary Brennan) and grandson Joshua Chladek (and Kathryn). Vera's life was further enriched by her stepchildren Carlynn, Ritchie and Christina, their spouses and their children.
Vera is predeceased by her sister Kveta Jachymova, whose death was Vera’s greatest sorrow.
A special thank you to Vera's personal caregiver Susan “Suzinka” Schkura, who visited Vera daily for the last few years.
Vera was loved and truly cherished. Her loss leaves a deep pang that will stay with us forever.
Please join the family for a time of visiting, sharing memories and celebrating Vera's life on Saturday, February 10, 2018, 3pm-5pm. at Gilpin Funeral Chapel, 123 King St. East in Forest.
