Leave Condolences



Dear Sweet Velma,

Thank you for being the world's best neighbor and friend to our mother, Donna Cook. Just like the beautiful gardens you grew every year, you have grown beautiful friendships and respect that will live on. We will miss you! Give Gary a hug for us!

The Cook Family


Velma was such a wonderful Mom and Grandma. We will surely miss her beautiful smile and kindness. She was a wonderful lady and was loved very much by our family. Her sweet spirit was always an inspiration to each of us. She enriched our lives and will always be close to our hearts.

Burke & Paula Jensen Jones and Family


This is belated, but we just learned over the weekend that Velma passed away back in May. We were neighbors while living in Brigham City, before moving to North Carolina, after retirement. She was a wonderful person and always shared her garden and fruit crops with us. She always made delicious cookies for us whenever Earl did any handyman work for her. We kept in touch with cards and phone calls, and will miss visiting with her when we are back in Brigham City. She was such a caring person and always wanted to know about all of our children. She would always call to check on us whenever she heard of any severe weather conditions in NC. We will miss her and our prayers are with the family.
