Obituary for Vera Kline (Compton)

Vera Kline (Compton)
Vera Louise Compton Kline, 87, of Bridgewater, formerly of Manassas, Virginia, passed away November 28, 2017 at the Bridgewater Retirement Community.

Born in Washington, DC on February 19, 1930, she was the daughter of Thomas Ruckman Compton and Ida Andes Compton. Vera attended and enjoyed doing plays at Juniata College in Huntingdon, PA. After graduating in 1951 with a degree in Sociology she entered Brethren Volunteer Service (BVS) and served in Germany for 1½ years working with refugees after WWII. During that time she became engaged to fellow BVS volunteer Harley Kline and they were married on April 12, 1953, returning to Harley’s BVS project in Ioannina, Greece until 1954. After moving back to the U.S. they settled on Harley's family dairy farm in Manassas, VA where they remained lifelong residents, and raised their four children. Vera worked for Prince William County and was a member of the Manassas Church of the Brethren. She tended a huge garden each year, harvesting and canning fresh vegetables and fruit for her family and many others. She and Harley were both generous and compassionate people giving much of their extra time to their local church and the greater community. Vera was a deacon, taught Sunday school, helped with Vacation Bible School, was a camp counselor, and went on several trips following natural disasters as a volunteer for Children’s Disaster Services. In later years she and Harley were fortunate to be in good health and traveled throughout the world and the U.S. visiting old friends and making new ones. Their home was open to visitors of all nationalities and walks of life and Vera made sure you never left without a bite to eat or a cup of coffee. She was devoted to her family and loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Vera’s husband, Harley, preceded her in death on July 20, 2015. Surviving are her four children, Michael Kline and his wife Lisa of Madison County; Kathy Kline Miller and her husband David of Pennsylvania; Christa Harrell and her husband Louis of Manassas; Ruth Mickelberry and her husband David also of Madison County; eight grandchildren, Michael, Jason, Taylor, Hannah, Sarah, Kinsey, Caroline and Zackery; and five great-grandchildren, Darla, Emmett, Brian, Isabella, and Nadia.

A time of visitation with the family will be on Sunday, December 3, 2017 from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. at the Manassas Church of the Brethren, 10047 Nokesville Road Manassas. A memorial service will begin at 2:00 p.m. in the church sanctuary with Rev. Mandy North and Rev. Dr. Christopher Bowman officiating.
Interment will immediately follow in Cannon Branch Cemetery, Manassas, Virginia.

Memorial contributions may take the form of a donation to the Manassas Church of the Brethren, 10047 Nokesville Road, Manassas, Virginia 20110.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Baker-Post Funeral Home & Cremation Center under the direction of Michael Post. Please sign the guestbook at www.bakerpostfh.com.
