Veronica was born on January 31, 1936 in Pilger, Saskatchewan to Adam and Elizabeth (nee Wourms) Dobmeier. She grew up in a family with 13 brothers and sisters. She became a sister with the Roman Catholic Church before leaving and marrying Stefan Horacki. They had three children Joseph, Andrew and Denise. Veronica was a homemaker and loved to bake and garden. She made homemade bread every week and was known for her cinnamon buns. She was also a crafty person making many things around the home, including costumes for every event.

In 2004, Veronica had surgery for a brain aneurysm and due to complications she didn’t return home. She made her new home at the Battleford’s District Care Centre. Although extremely difficult, Veronica learned to enjoy life to its fullest. She enjoyed music, mass and other activities for the residents.
