WOROBEC, Vera Rutka

WOROBEC - Vera Rutka June 12, 2018, passed away at age 98 in Buffalo General Medical Center. Vera was born in New Toronto, Ontario, raised in Port Colborne, and became a US citizen in the 1950s. She loved Buffalo, and was delighted to see the city on the rise again. She had a career as a fashion model on both sides of the border, and as a millinery buyer at J. N. Adam & Co. Vera loved to cook for family and friends, and had the proverbial green thumb. An avid hockey fan, Vera rooted for the Capitals during the Stanley Cup finals, and always had critical comments about the officials. She was the beloved wife of the late John S. Worobec. Vera is survived by her daughter Janice J. Worobec and son in-law G. Clifford Abromats; her grand-dog Lily; and several nieces and nephews. Funeral services were private. Friends are invited to remember Vera on Thursday, September 6, 2018 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at the John E. Roberts Funeral Home, 280 Grover Cleveland Highway, Amherst, NY 14226. Memorial contributions may be made to The Twentieth Century Club of Buffalo Preservation Foundation, 525 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14202. Share online condolences at
