Veronica was born on Sunday, June 11, 1967, to Debbie and Larry Hayes in Wichita, Kansas. She graduated from Metro Midtown High School and continued her studies through college courses. Veronica worked as a waitress at her family's restaurant—Broadway Cafe. She went on to work at Don's Restaurant, where she met her husband and best friend, Steve Napier, who she was married to for 19 years. Veronica and Steve started their own concrete business in 2004 and worked alongside each other until she passed away.
Veronica was a woman of tremendous faith who was defined by her love for Jesus. She was a devoted wife and mother, and loved her family very much. Veronica was known for her selflessness and her sense of humor. She enjoyed spending time in her kitchen making homemade meals such as her famous deviled eggs or her chocolate gravy recipe that was passed down by her mother. She loved spoiling her animals like they were her children. Veronica was grateful for each day the Lord blessed her with. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends and all who knew her.
