Jan. 19, 2016

Velma Louise (Siefert) Felios, 97, died on Jan. 19, 2016, at North Big Horn Hospital.

Velma was born Aug. 5, 1918, to Farris and Lurline Siefert of San Diego. She was preceded in death by her parents, two sisters, Vivian and Marion, and her husband Robert George Felios, who died in 1968.

The couple had five children: Barbara (Boots) Shumway, Carol (Bob) Chenault, Robert (Geri) Felios Jr., Thomas (Melissa) Felios and Patricia (Keith) Ochs.  She also leaves behind her grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.  In 1993, after the loss of her sight, she moved to Lovell from San Diego to be with her daughter Barbara.

She loved to sing, dance and play the piano.   She enjoyed her time in the Care Center and appreciated the wonderful love and care she received from all those around her. Her spirit will live on in the example she set for her children in her attitude of kindness and selflessness. Velma was totally devoted to her family. She was loved by her children and will be greatly missed.

A memorial service will be held in the New Horizons Care Center on Feb. 1, 2016, at 11 a.m.  A graveside service will be held at Greenwood Cemetery in San Diego.
