Vera loved to read, do jigsaw puzzles and word puzzles. Love came effortlessly for Nancy; it was in her nature to nurture and care for all people, from all walks of life.
She also loved to write letters and send greeting cards. She loved Disney, traveling to Door County and any excuse she had to go out shopping. Gregory Stoll; children, Kelly (Brent) Henke, Ryan Stoll; grandchildren, Bennett and Makenzie Henke; mother Josephine (Kapior) Hilleary; sister, Denine (Michael) Diece; as well as other nieces, nephew, relatives and friends. Her enjoyment of indulging in anything made of or with ham will always be remembered.
At first they lived on the Pelton homestead, and then in 1951 they bought their own farm just over the hill.
They farmed there until Keith’s death where Vera stayed until she decided to go to Our House in 2014.
Vera enjoyed spending time with her family including breakfasts or coffee with her sisters and sisters-in-law.
On the farm she had two large gardens from which she canned and frozen large amounts of fruits and vegetables each summer. Vera did volunteer work with disabled children and she also volunteered at the Reedsburg hospital and at area nursing homes. She enjoyed working in the banking industry for more than 35 years. She was preceded in death by her father, Henry Hilleary. You could often find her wearing any type of silly hat, disguise glasses, various wigs, or just about anything that would ensure a smile.
She was a member of the Reedsburg United Methodist Church and was co-chair of the funeral luncheon and rummage sale committees until she was 80 years old. Stoll, 57, of Wisconsin Dells, passed away at home Thursday, Jan. Mari, the daughter of Henry and Josephine (Kapior) Hilleary, was born Sept. She was never one to turn down a game of Yahtzee or Dots and Boxes, especially with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
One day when she could not get the door open she went to the farmhouse for help and one of the Pelton sons, Keith, helped her open the door.
They married in 1949 and celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary before Keith died in 2010.
