VERONICA DEL PRA BENNETT
(September 25, 1932 – June 24, 2012)
Longtime Lakeway resident, Veronica Bennett passed away peacefully in her home June 24, 2012, surrounded by her loving family. She was born on September 25, 1932 in New Bern, North Carolina to Attilio Emil Del Pra and Mary Veronica Sousa Del Pra.
She is survived by her loving husband of 60 years, Rex, by son, Rex, Jr. and his wife, Kathy, and their children, Alexis and Lauren, of Houston; and by daughter Kathy Bennett Kuban and her husband, Robert Kuban, and their son, Robert, Jr. and his wife, Cortney, of Nacogdoches, and their son Matt, and his wife, Brette, of Austin.
Beginning in 1983 Veronica was very active in the Lakeway community, serving as president of the Homeowners Association and in 1989 she became the first woman to be elected to the Council, where she served two terms. She led the fight for acquisition of land for a City Park, which became a reality with voter approval in 1991.
As a military wife for 20 years, she was an active volunteer in her church, PTA, and various charitable causes, wherever her husband's assignment took them.
The family wishes to thank the staff at Westlake Hospital and Hospice of the Hills, Drs. Robert Izor and James Pohl, Mickey Edgemond, and Carmen Straight for their exceptional care.
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in her memory to the National Parkinson Foundation, Inc., 1501 N.W. 9th Avenue/Bob Hope Rd, Miami, FL 33136-1494.
