Veronica Noel Bestler, age 26, of Hampshire passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, May 23, 2017. She was born on Christmas Day, 1990. Veronica was loved by her parents Michael and Gina (Stevens) Bestler. Growing up as the 2nd oldest of eight, Veronica was known as one of the leaders to her younger siblings. Sometimes as the leader the blame stopped with her, but she never let herself get in trouble alone. Veronica was quick to share the blame to avoid the inevitable reprimand. Bungee jumping off the family silo is just a small example of what fun the family had together. Veronica always enjoyed doing her makeup. When she and her siblings were young, Veronica would line up her sisters to give them make overs. She never wanted to be seen without her make up done, to the extent of applying her makeup on the school bus in the morning and removing it just as fast at the end of the day before getting home. She was always prepared to look her best in the, even in the case of a fire, ju...
