Vera A. Pray


Vera A. Pray, passed away on October 15, 2023, at her home in East Bethany. 

Born on July 11, 1970, in Batavia, a daughter of the late Donald and Barbara (Osborne) Donohue.

Vera's personality was infectious and she had a large network of friends who cherished her company.  Vera touched the lives of everyone she met and will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Vera had many hobbies and interests that brought her great happiness. She loved spending time outdoors, embracing the beautiful nature that surrounded her. Summer was her favorite season, as she enjoyed basking in the sunshine and breathing in the fresh air. Vera also found comfort in curling up with a good book or losing herself in movies on The Hallmark Channel or on Lifetime.

While Vera's passing leaves a void in our hearts, we take solace in knowing that she is now reunited with her late son Timothy Jacob Pray who passed away on  June 23, 2007. Their reunion brings us some peace during this difficult time.

Vera is survived by her husband Timothy E. Pray; her children James Solomonidis, Gregory Solomonidis, Alex Pray, and Arianna Pray, who were her pride and joy. She is also survived by her brothers Robert Snyder, Michael Snyder, Greg Snyder, and Gene (Barb) Snyder and many nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, October 21, 2023, from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM at H.E. Turner & Co. Funeral Home located at 403 E Main Street, Batavia. Her funeral service will be held on Sunday, October 22, 2023, starting at 2:00 PM at the funeral home. She will be laid to rest in Grandview Cemetery, Batavia.

Vera was a kind-hearted soul who touched countless lives with her generosity and love. May her memory live on forever through the stories we share and the love we carry in our hearts.
