Veronica Thee had a happy childhood growing up in beautiful Pennsylvania. Early in her life, Ms. Thee was a nun before she married and had children.
She was married to her husband, Bill, for 49 years. Ms. Thee home-schooled, cooked, sewed her children’s clothing, gardened, canned, and was a member of many organizations.
She was also the co-owner of Thee of California Bakery. Ms. Thee was known as the “smiling lady” and had an open heart and loving spirit. She took pride in being a Soroptmist for 40+ years.
Ms. Thee enjoyed attending meetings, the friendships she made, and knowing that Soroptimist made a difference.

The Veronica Thee Service Awards recognizes young women who make the community and world a better place through volunteer efforts such as: fighting drugs, crime and violence; cleaning up the environment; and working to end discrimination and poverty. Volunteer actions that benefit women or girls are of particular interest.
Soroptimist International is an organization of women whose members volunteer in their communities, often working on the same problems that you do. Although we realize that volunteering is its own reward, we also know it feels good to be recognized for your actions. And that’s why we sponsor this award.
