Verona grew up in Nebraska, where she met the love of her life, Robert E. Rydel. They were married in December of 1951, and were blessed with 50 years of marriage. They spent many of those years traveling while Robert was in the Air Force. Robert and Verona relocated to Lake Havasu City in 2000, and Bob passed away in 2002.
