|She loved her family and enjoyed the times we were all together! She always enjoyed a good laugh!|
This website was created for the matriarch of our family, Verna Belmore! Everyone knew her as Vicki, Mom or Memere. She was a beloved character! She was diagnosed with Lung cancer in September of 2009 and wasn't surprised by this diagnosis, having been a smoker for over 70 years. She was a trooper right up to the end, and because of her strong will, held on longer than even the doctors could have imagined! She loved her family fiercely, even though sometimes she may have not shown it in the way they imagined she should. She had a big heart, always adopting angels from the trees at Christmas to ensure that a child or two wouldn't go without. She always supported charities that were near and dear to her, and always was involved in local food drives for her church, or the USPS. She loved to be social, and was still a shopaholic up until the last few months. She adored her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, as well as others, and always made sure that she remembered everyone's birthdays! She would want everyone to dance and party instead of mourning her! She celebrated life, and would want us all to remember how full of life and laughter she was! She was cared for by her family and Hospice of Marion County, FL in the final few months of her life. She didn't want any flowers sent, because she said that flowers die, instead she wanted donations to be made in her name to Hospice of Marion County, P.O. Box 4860, Ocala, FL 34478-4860 or to PATSA Tourette Alliance 132 W Middle Street, Gettysburg, PA 17325 Attn: Penny Samples
