Veronica, known as Roni to close friends and family, was born is Bertha, MN on 5/28/57 to Mervin and Dorothy Anderson. She grew up on a farm, and being the younger child of many children, she enjoyed being doted on by her older siblings.

She went on to join the military after High School, loved basic training and earned sharp-shooter accolades.
After her military service, Veronica married Christopher Lynch on December 1st, 1979. Together they raised 2 daughters with love and a mutual joy of music. Veronica loved playing the piano and guitar. She had a great love for horses and taught her daughters to ride and love the country, spending many weekends at her sister Phyllis’s home riding horses over the years. Veronica enjoyed many travels with her husband Chris including Cancun and St. Thomas Island, but camping was their true passion. She lived in many states through her life, especially loving living near the beach in Florida.
