Veronica “Roni” was born to Nudy Otwell and Margaret Ridgeway Otwell on December 14, 1957 in Marshall County. She graduated from Arab High School in 1976.

Veronica was known as Roni to her friends and family. She was such a kind and gentle soul with a quick and beautiful smile and she laughed so easily. It did not take much to make her happy. She loved spending time with her family and creating craft items. She was very talented in making and creating most anything be it with beads, material or etc. She could look at any item, go home and make it and made it seem so easy to others. The last few months she made beautiful faux cactus gardens.

She worked at KFC in Arab for many years and loved it because of all the people she saw daily. The last few years she worked in the toy department at Walmart and she said that was her favorite job. She saw the newest toys as they came in and she interacted with the children when they were looking at the toys and made recommendations to people looking to buy a gift. She witness the faces of joy on the children’s face when they knew they would get a new toy. When the toys were taken out of the boxes and scattered around, she was the one putting them back together and loved it.

Roni is survived by her brother; Nathan Otwell and his wife Melissa; uncle; William Ridgeway (Paula); aunts; Gay Nell Thomas and Peggy Rodgers (Grant) all of Arab, and Geraldine Clark of Lacey Spring, and many nephews and nieces.
