It is with deep sadness the family of Veronica Theresa Nymick announces her passing. Wrapped in the love of her family, the Angels took her to her heavenly home on the very day that she first arrived 97 years ago. Born June 30, 1925, in Graceton, Pennsylvania she was the daughter of Julius and Elizabeth (Toth) Sipos.
Vernie was one of 15 children born of this union and she is survived by her youngest sibling, Lillian Hardin in South Carolina. She was a wonderful mom and gram and had been a loving and devoted wife to her late husband, Pete whom she married on January 31, 1948, and he preceded her in death on January 22, 2011, having shared almost 64 years of marriage.
Left to mourn this special lady are her daughter, Paula Supko, and her husband Robert of Lititz, Pennsylvania, and her son, Joseph, and his wife Linda Kaye of Commodore, Pennsylvania.
Vernie’s heart was full of love for her family and she was happiest in the company of those who meant so much. Her grandchildren and great grands brought her endless joy. Missing her is grandson, Brian R. Supko and his wife, Diane of Homer City, and their sons, Jackson Peter and Colton James. Also granddaughter, Suzanne Supko Davis, her husband Josh, and their children, Brynleigh Veronica, Calla Elaine, and Greyson Joshua of Lititz, Pennsylvania. Step grandson, Gary Gregg, his wife, Laura, their daughters, Sam and Alex Grove, and her husband, Cameron, and their daughter, Addalyn, all of Maryland will fondly remember Vern.
Younger years allowed for Vernie to enjoy travels across the US with her sisters, going to the casinos, buying scratch-off lottery tickets (and more often than not winning something), helping to make and pack hundreds and hundreds of pierogies for the church festivals with the ladies at St. Louis and she never seemed to tire of cooking and baking and she was terrific at both.
When walking into her house we were all drawn to start eating something, hungry or not. Vern was happiest to have her home filled with family and friends, lively conversation around the kitchen table, and a bottomless pot of coffee on the counter. We will keep close the memories of so many happy holidays, backyard cookouts, birthday celebrations, and so many other family events made special because of Vern. Thanks, Mom!
With parents and husband, Vernie is joining her heavenly family of brothers, John, Julius, Steve, Frank, Arthur, Joe, and Andy; sisters, Elizabeth Uher, Esther Gordish, Edith Obreczian, Margaret Moyer, Irene Dienes, and Helen Duby.
Surviving Vernie are also many nieces and nephews who really meant a lot to her.
Vernie, was a devoted and lifetime member of St. Louis Roman Catholic Church, Lucernemines, Pennsylvania.
The family wishes to express heartfelt gratitude and a multitude of thanks to all departments and staff at Indiana Square PCH for the compassionate and loving care shown to “Miss V” while a resident there. Our tears are your tears. Also, we so appreciated the nursing service and kindness shown us by Deb with 365 hospice in helping us say goodbye to our mom and gram.

A Blessing Service will be held Wednesday at 9:30 AM at the funeral home followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 AM at Our Lady of the Assumption Parish, Lucernemines Site.
