She was 82 years old when she died.

Vera's daughter, Doris, wrote this about her mother's closing chapter in life (date unknown):

"Mom developed sugar diabetes in her later years.  She scratched her leg somehow, and it got infection in it, developing into a massive sore that the doctors couldn’t heal.
We took her to the doctor in Vernal on February 28th 1990.  She was in and out of the hospital and the care center from then until May.  This was very hard on her as she was so confused, not knowing where she was most of the time.  We took her home, and everyone took turns staying with her, and helping take care of her.
Clayton had a friend in Provo that was a specialist in the Burn Center at Utah Valley Hospital, and asked Clayton to bring her out there and see if he could heal her leg.  We took her out there and he tried very hard, but there had been so much damage done to the blood vessels that he couldn’t do much for her.  He told us they would have to amputate the leg up to her knee.  She begged us not to let them take her leg off.  All of the family held a special fast, and went to the temple together.  This was a very spiritual day.
The doctor had scheduled the surgery for May 8th for the amputation.  But on May 5th a wise and gracious Heavenly Father called her home and she didn’t have to suffer anymore. We were all grateful that she didn’t have to endure any more suffering."
