Vera C. Dalton
Vera C. (McGinn) Dalton, of Hull, died on August 22. 
She was born and raised in Boston, the daughter of the late James and Euphemia (Campbell) McGinn. She later moved to Hull to her “home by the bay” where she would reside for 52 years. She worked for many years as a lunch lady for the Hull Public Schools. 
Vera loved to read, do her crossword puzzles, and listen to her favorite talk shows and music on her transistor radio. Her perfect days were spent on the porch, surrounded by her family and friends.
Beloved wife of the late Robert J. Dalton, Vera was the loving mother of Francis J. Dalton, of Florida; Michelle M. Hickson, of Florida; Robert N. Dalton, of Florida; Denise M. Clark, of Hull; Margaret M. O’Keefe and Raymond, of New York; and Kelley A. Condon and Brian, of Quincy. She was treasured Grandma to Stephen Dalton, Katherine Hickson Verteramo, Matthew Waldron, Andrew Hickson, Daniel Clark, Thomas Clark, Kelley O’Keefe Zabriskie, Emily Waldron, Megan Condon, Stephen Condon, Samantha Dalton, Alexandra Dalton, and Danielle Dalton and treasured “G.G.” to nine great-grandchildren. 
Dear mother-in-law of Pamela Roop and Sharon Dalton, Vera is also survived by many nieces, nephews, and cousins and her dear friend and loving caregiver, Jane Conathan. 
Vera was predeceased by her children William J. Dalton, Maryellen Dalton, Maureen A. Waldron, Stephen G. Dalton, and Daniel Dalton and also by her siblings James McGinn, Agnes Doiron, Rita McGrath, and William McGinn.
