Verona M. (Sather) Skare, formerly of Burnsville, Minnesota passed away July 4, 2023, at Diamond Willow Assisted Living in Baxter, Minnesota.

A service for Verona will be held at the White Funeral Home in Burnsville, Sunday, Sept 10, 2023 at 2:00 p.m.

Verona was born August 27, 1933, in Benson, Minnesota to Mervin and Polly (Antolick)Sather. She grew up on the family farm and attended Benson High School where she met the love of her life, Ted Skare Jr. They married in February of 1952 and together had three children. They were one month shy of their 69th Wedding Anniversary when her beloved Ted passed away.  She is now with him in heaven and for that we are grateful.

Our loving mother is survived by her children: Tim (Sue) Skare, Breezy Pt, MN, Jay (Penny) Skare, New Prague, MN and Robin (Kurt) Hopp, Baxter, MN;  seven grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; her sister Margie Commerford of Buffalo, MN; brothers-in-law: Terry (Carol) Skare, Roger Skare, Burton Iversen and  sister in law Carol (Carlyle) Boettcher along with many extended family members and dear friends.

Verona joins Ted, her parents Mervin and Polly, her sisters Marion, Doris and Dianne in heaven and we believe there is some dancing going on.

Arrangements were provided by Brenny Funeral Home in Baxter.
