Obituary

Veronica (Vera) Agnes Higgins (nee Connolly) age 92 on 09/07/2020. Beloved wife of 72 years to David.
Loving mother to Eileen Syrop (late Steve), Maureen Delgado (Vic), Michael (Ellen), Susan Hall (John), Ronnie Fugger (Mark), David Jr. (Denise) & Danny (Vivian).
Cherished Grandmother to Steven (Dagmar), Brian, Jeffrey (Courtney), Danny (Katie), Shannon (Rick), Patrick (Liz), Ryan (Christina), Taylor, Shane, Morgan, Samantha (Chris), Matthew, Chrissy, David (Lauren), Brittany. Cherished Great Grandmother to Christine, Brendan, Tristan, Danny, Evan, Cassie, Trevor, Cadence, Reagan & Charlotte with Jameson and Jack soon to be added to the family.

Loving sister to Catherine McEntee and Sister in law to Joseph Daley. She was pre-deceased by her 9 brothers and sisters. She will also be missed by her many nephews, nieces, and friends.
Daughter of the late John & Alice Connolly, she grew up in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY from April 19, 1928 until, moving to Brentwood in 1962 to raise her family of 7. She had a wonderful, rewarding life, full of loving friends and neighbors, some of whom are still part of her life. She was an inspirational, supportive mother and will remain a remarkable role model. She was happiest with a well-stocked fridge and family crowded around her table. Her zest for life was to always have a good time, whether it would be singing Irish songs with her friends or playing with the kids and grandchildren, she always did it with a beautiful smile which made her gorgeous blue eyes sparkle.

Her faith was very important to her and she raised her family to be active members of the Catholic Community and we know she will be embraced by the heavenly father upon her arrival. She will be greatly missed by all that knew her and will live forever in our hearts. We will always cherish the wonderful memories we have!

Reposing at Michael J. Grant Funeral Homes CORAM 3640 Route 112 (2 ½ miles north to LIE Exist 64), Funeral Mass Friday 9/11/20 at St Marks R.C. Church Shoreham, followed by Interment at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Coram, NY. The family will receive friends Thursday 9/10 2pm – 4pm and 7pm – 9pm.

The family asks for Memorial Donations in Veronica's name to the Maria Regina Residences in Brentwood, NY.
