OBITUARY: George, Veronica Jeanne

Donner Lake cabin owner Jeane Veronica George, a resident of Sunnyvale, Calif., died Aug. 1. She was 70.

Veronica was born June 5, 1943 to Ronald and Betty Taylor in Omaha, Neb. She was raised in California and graduated from Tustin High School in 1961. She attended Marylhurst College in Oregon, and worked at Stanford University for 28 years, primarily in the registrar office in information services. She retired in 1994.

Veronica spent much of the past 27 summers at her Donner Lake cabin extensively using her lifetime fishing license. She truly loved the outdoors with a series of golden and labrador retrievers over the years. She is survived by her mother Betty Taylor of Orange, Calif.; brother Stephen of Mira Loma, Calif.; Christopher of Dallas, Texas; Patrick of San Jose, Calif.; Michael of Garden Valley, Calif.; Jonathon of Bozeman, Mont.; Matthew of Orange and loving husband of 34 years Benjamin George of Sunnyvale.

Ronnie was a generous and loving aunt to her many nieces and nephews and a loving friend to many. She will live in our hearts forever.

In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to the American Cancer Society and Pathways Hospice.
