Vernon C. Austin


Vernon C. Austin, 93, of Medina, NY, went to be with the Lord on Monday, Feb. 8, 2021 at Premier Nursing Home, Batavia, N.Y.

For 30 years, Vern was the devoted Caretaker of Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Shelby and prided himself in the meticulous care given to long hours of trimming and mowing the cemetery. Vern had an amazing memory and knew where most families were buried without looking at the records.

Besides his wife, Vern is survived by his four children, Danice Austin of Albion, Vernon Carl Austin Jr. of Batavia, Beverly (Dick) Walthew of E. Bethany, and Alan (Barb) Austin of Albion.

Also surviving are five grandchildren, David, Daryl, Darci, Anne, Stephany; and 12 great-grandchildren; two brothers-in-law, Clifford (Susan) Grant of Gasport, N.Y., Lee (Lori) Grant, and a sister-in-law, Jean Grant, all of Middleport, N.Y.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a graveside committal at 2:00 PM on Saturday, July 24, 2021, at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Salt Works Rd. Medina, NY 14103.

Arrangements were made through the Bogan & Tuttle Funeral Home, 226 Pearl St. Medina, NY 14104.
