She is also survived by her brothers: Penrize, Alene, Martin, Eusfield, Reginald, Hector and Reid; aunts: Linda Vidal and Alvina John Harry; uncles: Sentaylis and Morris John; the John, Vidal, Casimir, Laronde and Barry families of Dominica; as well as other family and friends too numerous to mention.

The viewing will take place at 9 a.m. followed by a funeral service at 10 a.m., Wednesday, July 21, at Holy Family Catholic Church. Interment will be at Smith Bay Eastern Cemetery. The family requests that festive colors are worn to celebrate the life of Veronica Casimir.
