Veronica was born on December 18, 1922 in Newark, NJ to the late Valentine and Tekla Zdrada. She lived in Irvington, NJ and Edison, NJ before moving to Berkeley Township 33 years ago. Veronica loved to travel and spend time with the love of her life, and husband of 73 years, Theodore. They once traveled cross country to take in all the beauty our country has to offer. They would especially like to take trips to Wildwood with the family, Atlantic City, and the Poconos. She enjoyed cooking and preparing holiday meals for family, bowling in her younger years, and more recently doing the Star Ledger crossword puzzles. Veronica's passion in life was family, especially her two grandchildren. She will be remembered most for her strong-willed personality, a woman her spoke her mind, and someone always willing to help anyone in a time of need. She is survived by her devoted son, Rick Yarem and his wife Lorraine; two loving grandchildren, Erica Kosen and her husband Thomas, and Christopher Yarem and his wife Jaime; and by her cherished great-grandson, Brantley Kosen.
