Veronica was born on February 15, 1931 in Alliance, Ohio to the late Josephine and Nicholas Ottle. On August 23, 1958 she married her devoted husband, Joseph Schillig. She was a member of Sacred Heart of Mary Church in Louisville. She was a loving, kind, and dedicated wife and mother who always had a listening ear to anyone who needed her. She was an avid crocheter, painter, and rosary maker and cherished each moment spent with her children and family. Veronica will be remembered for how she cared deeply, loved abundantly and affectionately, and her sense of humor.

    Veronica was a great lady & dear friend. A special person with such a laugh & sense of humor. I will truly miss her so. Such a strong person & survivor of so much in her life she endured. Truly her faith carried her through this all, that made her even a stronger woman. I always laugh & said she had 9 lives like a cat. A lady that took an interest in everyone & with such a loving caring heart. A great big heart of gold she passed that quality down on to her family. I’m thankful that I got to know her. My high school friends Mother, & that became my friend too. There are to many memories to share of special stories shared with her. Especially ones that would make you blush , but smile & laugh. Miss you so, t okill I see you again with my MOM & Scott up in Heaven. I’m sure your up there in charge of important things, but never a dull moment. Your truly an angel of love & joy. My heart goes out & thinking of the entire Schillig Family. 🙏😢❤
