Veradis (Vera) Romero Nielsen

Passed away  -much too early-  unexpectedly at home on Monday, October 23, 2023.  Beautiful cherished daughter of Jessica Romero and Chris Nielsen and admired older sister of Isidore and Dolores.

Beloved granddaughter of Patricio (deceased) and Sofia Romero, and Alberto and Carmen Gloria Nielsen. Treasured niece of Jennifer Romero and Steve Battams, Rhea Romero and Michael Borzecki, Constance Nielsen and Mark Zdaniuk.  Vera is endlessly adored by her cousins Mikayla and Maisyn Battams, Lily and Aubrey Borzecki, Tristan, Amelia, and Callen Nielsen Zdaniuk.  She will be remembered joyfully by her many friends. 

Vera's kindness and compassion were felt by all.   Her pursuits were a reflection of her unlimited strength and talent; she was full of infectious energy that brightened the lives of all those around her. Vera's art inspires many. The sport of swimming was Vera's passion. Vera's magnificent smile will forever be imprinted on our hearts and her laughter will echo in our memory.  

A celebration of Vera's life followed by a reception will take place on November 27 at 2 PM at THEMUSEUM, 10 King West, Kitchener

Arrangements entrusted to the Henry Walser Funeral Home, 507 Frederick Street, Kitchener and THEMUSEUM, 10 King West, Kitchener.

As expressions of sympathy, donations to Grand River Hospital Foundation, would be appreciated.
