Velda was a sweet lady with a gentle spirit. I remember her holding my hand and walking with me at my mother's funeral in October 2017. I can imagine she was a wonderful and companionate daughter, wife, sister, mother, grandmother and friend. Prayers to Larry and the rest of her family. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. Debbie (Anderson) Buczinski

It’s hard to imagine Ulysses church of Christ without Velda. She was a giving servant with a sweet smile. This lady loved her family. ❤️ Prayers for the Anderson’s.
