Veronica Jewel Henderson - 38, of Pleasant Valley, Brookfield, passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 8th, 2022, at home surrounded by her loving family, after a courageous four year battle with brain cancer. Born in Springhill, she was a daughter of Alex Crowley (Ruthann Brookins) and the late Kathleen (Stewart) Crowley of Streets Ridge.

After graduating from Mount Allison University with a Bachelor of Commerce Degree, Veronica worked as a Tax Auditor for Revenue Canada. When not at work, Veronica loved to listen to Country music - especially live concerts (hence a honeymoon in Nashville). She had an art for knowing all the words to every country song known to man and enjoyed singing along. She could often be found in her greenhouse, vegetable garden or flower beds. Her green thumb led her to becoming a member of the Brookfield Garden Club. Over the years, Veronica had a passion for drawing, quilting and anything crafty. She was always up for a challenge and excelled in anything she put her mind to.  

Veronica was very family oriented and loved to spend time with her immediate and extended families either at home in Brookfield, in River John or on Big Lake. Outnumbered by an all boy household, Veronica appreciated a feminine touch on life, such as requesting a pink birthday cake with purple icing or a girls only trip to the spa. She was a very patient, kind, selfless individual who had a great sense of humour and an act for cherishing life's simple pleasures. 

Veronica is survived by her devoted husband of eleven years, Matthew; sons, Luke, Scott and Josh; brother, Marshal (Heidi); sister, Theresa; grandmothers, Marion Crowley and Maxine Stewart; and lots of well-loved extended family. She was predeceased by her mother, Kathleen (Stewart) Crowley, and her grandfathers, Percy Crowley and Laurie Stewart. 

Arrangements have been entrusted to Mattatall - Varner Funeral Home, 55 Young Street, Truro where the family will receive friends from 6-8 pm on Thursday, May 12, 2022. Graveside service will be held 2 pm on Friday, May 13th, 2022, in Pleasant Valley Cemetery, Reverend Mark Kingsbury officiating. If so desired, donations to Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada are welcomed.
