Veronica was born to William F. and Christina (Lentz) Vinduska on January 13, 1932, on the family farm near Pilsen, Kansas.  She attended Pilsen Grade School and graduated from Marion High School.  Following high school, she attended Sacred Heart in Wichita.  Veronica was employed by the Marion Health Department from 1951-1952, the year she was united in marriage to Eugene J. Konecny on December 27, 1953, in a ceremony delayed by a snowstorm earlier in November.  The couple lived in Wichita for several years, where Veronica worked for First Securities.  While in Wichita the family welcomed son Greg who passed away as a newborn, daughter Monica and daughter Jacintha.  In 1960, the family moved to a farm not far from the family farm, then daughters Cerita and Karla were born.  After Karla started school, Veronica worked in Marion for Farm Bureau Insurance, Marion Insurance Center and finally Case and Son Insurance.  Veronica kept active as president of the St. Ann’s Altar Society and the Centennial Celebrate in Pilsen.  In March of 1980, the family moved into Pilsen.  Eugene passed away in 2007 and Vernie remained in Pilsen until 2011 when she moved to assisted living in Hutchinson, close to family.  Veronica is survived by her daughters Monica Lawrence, Jacintha Davis, Cerita Munshaw and Karla Leckliter; eight grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.  Veronica passed away on Wednesday November 1, 2023, at her daughter’s home.  She is preceded in death by her parents, husband Eugene, son Greg, sister Leona Loney, and brothers Sylvester and George Vinduska.   The Church will celebrate the funeral rites for Veronica beginning with the Funeral Vigil this Friday November 3, 2023, at 6pm at St. John Nepomucene Catholic Church.
