Born in Bridgeport, Veronica was the daughter to the late Stephen and Bessie (Marosa) Litrop. Veronica started her education at the St. Stephen's School then continued her education and graduated from Lauralton Hall, Albertus Magnus College, got her Master's at Fairfield University and her 6th at the University of Bridgeport.

Veronica was a high spirited and high energy person. She was musically gifted and learned to play guitar, piano and had a lovely soprano signing voice.
