Vera often sat with her friend Doris and when the event was finished she would often tell Pam that she had a lovely chat with that nice young lady, Doris who is 90 years of age.
Vera was very lucky to have Pam as her daughter as Pam made red hats. Vera turned up to each event in a different hat. She also wore her brilliant bling with elegance.
Vera loved our Easter Egg hunts although she sent Pam to do the egg hunting for her. She certainly enjoyed eating the easter eggs that were found for her.
When Vera turned 100 we organised for birthday cards from Red Hatters all over Australia to be sent to her. On that day we made her queen for the day and changed her title to The Very Delightful Dowager.
Vera participated in activities up until September last year.
Even though she no longer participated we always considered one of us right up until the end.I imagine she would have been the oldest Red Hatter in the world. She never let her age deter her from having lots of fun in her Red Hat life. That is the way we all will always remember Vera The Very Delightful Dowager.
