With deep sorrow we mourn the passing of our mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and friend. Verona Lucia Kanten was tenderly ushered into eternity early Wednesday morning, September 19, 2012 at the Bethany Care Center. She was the oldest girl of fourteen children, born in Stettler, Alberta.

Ronnie leaves nine grandchildren, six great grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her mother, father, nine brothers and sisters, her first husband, Ted McIntosh of Halkirk and husband of 43 years, Adolph (Adie) Kanten of Sylvan Lake.
