Upon learning of the death of this faithful matriarch & generous supporter of the NCCL apostolate for many years, the Executive Director signed the Aronne Family guestbook online with these words:
Eternal memory, oh Lord, grant unto thy departed servant, Veronica!
It is with sadness that I have only this past weekend [Friday, January 25] learned of the death of Mrs. Aronne, who was a woman of firm Catholic faith and charity. We had corresponded for many years, and I shall be grateful to her, on behalf of the NCCL apostolate which she generously supported, for the works of charity in which we collaborated.
By the prayers of the Blessed Virgin Mary, may God grant the surviving Family Aronne consolation and comfort.
May her soul rest eternally in the peace of Christ.
Here follows an obituary taken (with minor editing) from the website of the funeral home which assisted the family.
Veronica C. Aronne, née Derewlanka 89, of North Washington Street, North Attleboro, died Wednesday, December 12 (2012) at the Madonna Manor Nursing Home. She was the wife of the late Fred Aronne.
Veronica was born in Taunton, Massachusetts, to Ukrainian Catholic parents, the late Joseph & Werka Derewlanka.
Mrs. Aronne served as an Executive Secretary for the U.S. Government, working in the National Park Service Department, before retiring in 1986. She had lived in the immediate area (of North Attleboro) for over 14 years. She attended St. Mary’s Catholic Church. She was a volunteer at Madonna Manor for many years, and also enjoyed singing, and working in her garden. She loved to read, and loved spending time with her family.
She is survived by a son, Brian M. Aronne of Attleboro, and two daughters, Elise M. Aronne of Wrentham, and Judith A. Darling of Norton, Massachusetts. She was the grandmother of Matthew and Sarah Darling of Norton, Brandon and Brianna Aronne of Attleboro, and Luke Aronne of Maine. She was the sister of the late Stanley Derewlanka.
The Executive Director is requesting of missionaries to pray the divine Services for the repose of the soul of Veronica, NCCL’s generous supporter in Christ The Lord.
