Veda Mae Haggerty was an old and cantankerous woman resident of Grantville. She also was a nursing assistant at Bowers Assisted Living Center and almost retired from office work on Social Security before the Ring of Fire. Because she grew up during World War II (her father had served overseas), Veda Mae maintained anti-German prejudices. Veda Mae also loudly complained about Russians (whom she deemed "commies", even though it was still an empire) and Italians ("Eyetalians"). She didn't hold Asians in high regard either ( she called the Chinese-American family in Grantville as "Chinks" as was glad there weren't any "Japs" in town). Thanks to her antipathetic attitudes, she was disliked by most of Grantville. Veda Mae was also the town's loudest gossip which Jacques-Pierre Dumais, a Huguenot spy, appreciated.
