Veronica Elizabeth Hyatt

June 3, 1940 — September 28, 2023

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Veronica (Atkinson) Hyatt, 83 on September 28th surrounded by her loving husband.

She was born in Liverpool, England on June 3, 1940, to David Atkinson and Elizabeth (Frazier) Atkinson, the youngest daughter of seven children. She was predeceased by her siblings, Bernard Garrity, Frank Atkinson, Margaret McCoy, Brian Atkinson, and Ronald Atkinson.

Veronica was best known for her signature hair bun and English accent. Coming to the United States March 5, 1960, at the age of 20, as an au pair, she soon after met the love of her life. According to her, Kenneth left a smile on her heart the first time they met. On May 12, 1962, the two exchanged their vows at St. Mary's Church and promised each other a lifetime of love and happiness. The two established their first home that was built from scratch by her love in Silvermine, CT. A proud Brit and a proud American, she represented her love for both countries by displaying her collection of horse brass around her house and an American flag pinned on every blouse.

Most days you could find Veronica reading books by her favorite author, Danielle Steele with a nice hot cup of tea or watching the Hallmark channel as she was a hopeless romantic. As a creative outlet, Veronica would demonstrate her painting skills by painting handsaws and milk cans with beautiful country landscapes. As she was a beautiful artist, she also was an even greater baker. Her cakes were as lovely on the eyes as they were on the palate.

One of the biggest traits that Veronica was known for was her giving heart. Always putting people before herself made her one of the most selfless people. And if she did not have a gift to give, she always gave the gift of laughter. Her sense of humor was undeniable. Constantly making jokes, she would get everyone laughing so hard that she would even start to cry.

 Veronica is survived by her husband, Kenneth Hyatt, her daughter and son-in-law Heather and Joseph Carusone and their two children Michelle Frayne (Chris) and Peter Carusone. She was also survived by her son and daughter-in-law Kenneth Jr. and Jane Hyatt and their two children Kristen Benitez (Zachary McEwan) and William Benitez (Brittany Boudreau). Additionally, she was survived by her brother, David Atkinson of Washington state as well as several nieces and nephews.

The entire Hyatt family will be forever grateful to the loving caregivers and friends that helped her throughout the years. Their smiles, humor and genuine compassion to our beloved Veronica will never be forgotten.

A Celebration of Life Reception will be held at a later date.

Arrangements are by Dominick T. Adamo Funerals- Cremations-Monuments, 16 Walnut Street, Mifflinburg PA.
