Vera Wauneitta Wooten, the daughter of Claude and Retha Jane (Woten) Findley, was born on February 20, 1922 near Walthill, in Thurston County, Nebraska. She was baptized at the Church of Christ in Hamburg, Iowa and attended West Linn Country School in Montgomery County and Union Country School in Mills County, graduating from the 8th grade at the Armory in Glenwood, Iowa.

Vera and John Alfred Wooten were united in marriage on January 31, 1939 at the Methodist Parsonage in Rock Port, Missouri. They made their home in Hamburg, Iowa before moving to live in Malvern, Iowa. The couple was blessed with seven children, Frances Darlyene, Wauneitta Jean, Johnney Dean, Robert Alfred, Mary Jane, Claudette Colleen, and Harry Wayne.

Vera was a Gold Star sister. She enjoyed singing, camping and traveling. Vera was eager to learn new things and at the age of 60 years she learned to drive. She especially loved spending time with her family and friends.

Vera and John were married almost 43 years when John passed away on January 22, 1982. Vera continued to make her home in Malvern for many years, but due to declining health, she moved to the Tabor Manor Care Center in January 2012.

I'm truly sorry for the loss of your loved one. It is never easy and most heartbreaking. But we are never alone when we go through our trials. Psalms 34:18 says, " Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." We can be sure that he hears our prayers too. Psalms 65:2 says that he is the 'Hearer of prayers'. My deepest condolences to the family.

Grandma, Thank you for loving all of us grandchildren. We always felt at home when we went to grandma and grandpa's house. Some of my fondest childhood memories were family gatherings in Malvern. You always gave us a big hug and a kiss when you saw us. I will always cherish the Thanksgivings, Christmas, and 4th of July celebrations that we spent with the Wooten, White, Price and Mickles families. Thank you for being such a wonderful grandmother. I always laugh when I think about how you scared me when I was teaching you to drive. I love you dearly. I look forward to our next family gathering. Give John a big hug from us all and let him know how much we have missed him. Love you both, Marvin Mickles
