It is with great sadness that Accuform announces the passing of our founding matriarch and loved one, Veronica Johnson who passed away on June 26, 2018. She was 88.

Veronica was a remarkably strong and brilliant woman. Along with her husband Ron and son Dave, they founded Accuform in 1976. After the family business was established, Wayne left sales to join them. 

As the story goes, if it wasn’t for Veronica, Accuform would never have been known as such. It was Veronica who insisted on changing the name from Vaccuform to Accuform. She didn’t want their company to be at the end of the phone book... She was always one step ahead.

Veronica built a wonderful life. The legacy she created was not only for herself but for her large family, endless friends, and all who have been blessed to be a part of the Accuform family.

She created a legacy of love that continues to grow today. Her love story included 70 years of marriage to her one and only.

Everyone that met her was blessed to learn valuable lessons about compassion, commitment, and community. She will forever be missed.

The entire Accuform team would like to express deepest condolences to the family.

The viewing will be on Friday, June 29th from 7:00p-8:00p at Merritt Funeral Home | 2 S. Lemon Ave, Brooksville.

The funeral will be on Saturday, June 30th at 1:00p at St. Anthony Catholic Church | 20428 Cortez Blvd, Brooksville with a reception to follow in St. Anthony’s hall at 2:00p.

In 1969 Ron and Veronica Johnson started their own Safety Equipment Distributing business - Armour Protection Supplies in the basement of their house in Georgetown.

They first met in 1947 and it was love at first sight. But unable to get permission from their parents to marry early, they had to wait until Veronica turned 18 to get married.
