She was the beloved wife of the late LeRoy E. Parkton. Veronica was the ninth sibling in a family of ten, born to Andrew H. and Veronica Rose (Plavcan) Janendo.

On May 2, 1948 she married her High School sweetheart LeRoy in St, Mary’s Church. In May of 2018, they celebrated their 70th anniversary.
Betty and LeRoy enjoyed taking cruises to the Caribbean, Bermuda, Alaska, and Hawaii to celebrate wedding anniversaries. One of Betty’s highlights of her life was being a mentor to Children who had problems reading In Ocala (FLA) Middle School and helping them through her guidance to graduate to the next grade.
Veronica is survived by her son William (Nancy) Parkton of Warrington, PA and a daughter Joyce (Tony) Caparco of S. Dayton, NY. Betty was proud “Nana” to her four grandchildren, Laura (Shawnna) Sorenson of Warminster, Jonathan (Deanna) Parkton of Conchohocken, Nicholas (Jamie) Caparco and Jeffery (Jessi) Caparco of Dayton, NY.
