Vera was born June 5, 1931, on a farm near Steen, MN the daughter of Dick and Laura (Winkowitsch) Aukes. Vera attended grade school in Steen and graduated from Luverne High School.
She was united in marriage to Conrad Rozeboom on December 17, 1948, in Steen. They moved to a farm near Murdock in 1950. She and Conrad were blessed with 10 children. Tragedy struck when their son Darrell drowned in the creek on the farm at age 3 in 1954. The Rozeboom family participated in 4-H activities for many years. Vera was a member of Bethany Reformed Church of Clara City, where she was active in numerous organizations. After retiring, she and Conrad spent their winter months in southern Texas. Her greatest joy each year was the week the family spent at a lake resort “up north”. The large Rozeboom clan filled as many as 8 cabins in later years, creating memories enjoyed by all. Her greatest wish is for her family to know Jesus and be saved.
Vera is survived by her husband, Conrad; children: Linda (Verne) Meyer, Susan (Al) Kramer, Conley (Linda), Lora, Dale (Cheryl), Jane (John) Folkert, Karen (Warren) Formo, Kevin (Barb) and Kyle (Gretchen); 30 grandchildren; 41 great-grandchildren; 3 great-great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her 9 siblings, son Darrell, and grandson John Folkert.
