  • Notes 

    • BURIAL PLACE: Sandy City Cemetary, Sandy, UT

      One day as Verona was attempting to hitch her team, one of the horses kicked in the chin and laid the lower part of her jaw open. She carried that scar for the rest of her life. Verona graduated from school in Fountain Green in 1912. She lived there 10 months with her grandmother and Uncle Willard Bigelow, who was the doctor for the town. She met Alma Jensen there and fell in love.

      They were engaged to be married the next summer, but he and his father left town to find work. When he returned, he was jealous of the attention Verona had received from other young men; they quarreled and separated.

      In 1915, Verona married James Earnest Babcock. They found they couldn't have children of their own, so they adopted two boys. Earnest Babcock became paralyzed from the waist down 30 May 1956 and 10 Aug 1956.

      Verona met a widower, Peter Kasse, while wintering at Truth or Consequences in New Mexico. They were married 9 Feb 1961. After spending five years together, Peter died of cancer on 1 April 1966.

      Then Alma Jensen, her first love, having lost his first wife and finding out about Verona's losses, got in touch with her and a fifty three year loss of acquiantance, they decided they needed each and were married 29 October 1966.
