Obituary of Vera Skidmore

Vera "Babe" Skidmore Our Mom, at 89 years young, made her journey to heaven to be with her beloved husband of nearly 52 years, Robert 'Bob', as well as her parents, sister, brother and many dear friends. She left her loving children and grandchildren with life's best gift: the lesson of how to live life feeling blessed in spite of difficulties. She also taught us how to die with dignity, grace and faith. Her 3 +1 children Judy Lord (Jim), Robert 'Doug' Skidmore (Michele), Jan Neckar (Nick) and Jackie Leavenworth (Eric), 11 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and 6 great-great grandchildren will all miss her love, humor and wit forever. Private services were held and burial took place at Greenlawn Memorial Park in Akron. (Anthony Funeral Homes, McGowan-Reid & Santos Chapel, anthonyfh.com, FALLS)
