Vera White (nee Hatcher)
4th October 1916 ~ 30th June 2013
Vera was my Great Great Aunty. She was born on the 4th October 1916 in Peak Hill, NSW and died on the 30th June 2013 at a nursing home in Forster. She was one of eight children but never had any of her own however my Grandfather, her nephew was like a son to her.
She moved to Parkes in her youth, married Owen White in 1940. She and her sisters worked in the railway refreshment room (now known as a cafe) at Parkes railway station and then they later moved to Taree because her husband got a leading shunters postition at Taree railway station.
She was determined, hard working and willing to volunteer. An example of her determination is when she got to the age where had to renew her licence she was failed. She went to a driving instructor and took the test again. This time she passed and when the licence was handed to her she handed it back and said, "Now you can have it back."

She was part of the Pink Ladies at Taree Hospital for 50 years and baked cakes for the Red Cross. She worked as a seamstress and made and decorated wedding cakes. In her younger years she played tennis and when she moved to Taree she got into bowls. She played for state and won many competitons. She was also part of the CWA.
After her husband died she lived in her home alone until she was 95. When she was 90, she was interviewed on the radio and asked whether she got meals on wheels. Her reply was "Sonny, I do meals on wheels!"
