Vera L. Nordstrom, 94, formerly of Holmdel, passed peacefully on May 19 at her daughter’s home in Barnegat. Born in Rustburg, Virginia, to Sarah and Jason Winebarger, she was predeceased by seven brothers and sisters; and her loving son, Butch.
She was a World War II Navy aviation machinist who served her country proudly. She wasn’t your typical grandmother, as she loved to hunt, fish, fix cars and play her guitar and many other instruments without reading a single note.
Vera is survived by her daughter, Lee Bach of Barnegat; and her four grandchildren and their spouses, Debbie and Mike Brew, Joe and Deanna McMerty, Mary and Art Guerrera and Jason McMerty. She had 10 great-grandchildren who adored and loved her very much. Her family gratefully acknowledge the wonderful staff at Spring Oak assisted living in Lanoka Harbor and Vitas Hospice for all their loving care.
Barnegat Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements. Memorial donations may be made to Collier Youth Services (Send a kid to camp), 160 Conover Rd., Wickatunk, NJ 07765.
