Velma was an amazingly talented and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She influenced and nurtured her children's creative abilities by teaching them how to cook, sew, garden, and care for the animals on the farm. She also instilled in them the importance of hard work. Velma also loved roses and wherever she lived there was always a garden of beautiful roses.
Velma completed her own education after her children were grown.
Some of the experiences in her life that had special meaning for her were teaching Sunday school for young children at Brashear Baptist Church and being a full-time teacher's aide at Campbell ISD to a wonderful special needs student. She always loved children and enjoyed helping people.
