Veronica Agnes Stahl

We pause to celebrate a woman whose life journey was as a person who was always true to her God and believed in comforting those in need.

Veronica (Ronnie) Agnes Stahl’s whose life spanned over one hundred years passed away on October 25, 2021, after a brief battle with COVID-19. 

Veronica was born on July 11, 1920 in Ellensburg Center, NY, the oldest daughter of the late Otis Brothers and Lillian (Patnode) Brothers. She grew up in Clinton County, NY, graduating from Plattsburgh High School and attending nursing school in Plattsburg. After becoming a nurse Veronica joined the Women Army Corps (WAC) and was sent to Burma to the Army’s 20th General Hospital. Upon returning to the USA, she married Francis Stahl. They moved to Plattsburg, NY where Francis attended college. Veronica worked as a nurse, and they started their family.

After Francis’s graduation from college in 1953, they moved to St Albans, VT where Francis started working at Union Carbide’s Eveready plant. They spent the next twenty years living in St Albans, building great friendships, enjoying life, and raising their three children: Roberta, Richard, and Raymond. After the children finished school, Veronica and Francis moved to the New York City area, and later to Cleveland, Ohio for Francis’ job. 

Veronica and Francis enjoyed traveling and social activities together during their thirteen years of retirement. After Francis passed away in 1998, Veronica returned to St. Albans to be closer to her children. She spent the remainder of her life there in the house that she and Francis built.
