In the final summation of Anne's life, Mrs. Vedora was a caring wife and loving mother. She was a true "stage mom" who was instrumental and supremely supportive of her daughter, Veralyn's singing and music production career. Anne would follow her daughter from venue to venue, while she was touring throughout the US. She became social and close friends with the celebrities her daughter toured with; Such as Tony Bennett, Sergio Franchi, Frankie Lane, Pat Cooper, as well as so many other contemporaries of the music and entertainment profession. She was always stylish, dressed impeccably and at ease with all of the famous performers of our era.
