Velma Jean Lacey

November 24, 1929July 26, 2020

On Sunday, July 26, 2020, our beloved Velma Jean Lacey, entered into heaven at the age of 90. Velma was born on Sunday, November 24, 1929 in Ray, Arizona, to John and Lillian Hawk. Velma met the love of her life, George Lacey and they married on February 08, 1945, in Globe, Arizona. Velma and George raised seven beautiful children; Carol, Johnny, George “Jinx”, Dianne, Timothy, Cheryl and Allen. Velma worked very hard to raise her family and keep them together as they branched off and had families of their own. She was employed as a Nursing Assistant, a passion she was devoted to for forty-two years. She was dedicated to all she endeavored to do, and took great pride in her family and career. Velma had many joys in life. She loved to visit her Grandchildren (to include many Great and Great- Great Grandchildren) as often as possible. She kept the family connected by staying informed and informing. In many ways, she was her family’s lifeline to one another. She also enjoyed travel, attending church, and shopping. She had a beautiful smile and a wonderful laugh, we all wish we could enjoy those wonderful attributes, just one more time. Velma was proceeded in death by her dearly loved husband George (pictured top left with Velma), her wonderful parents John and Lillian Hawk (pictured left lower), her cherished son George “Jinx” (pictured left center), her treasured sister Maxine, and many more much-loved extended family members and friends. The funeral service for Velma is limited to her children, due to the recent viral health concerns. The service however, will be live-streamed and video recorded. It will be made available to all family and friends. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life (King James Version)

Velma Lacey is a very important and special person. She was Grandma to me and my Family my husband Jim and daughter Carley. We spent a lot of time with her the last few years. We had the opportunity to cook for her, take her out shopping, dinner, lunch, and brighten her day with sweets and flowers. We love her dearly and she will forever be missed. Her beautiful smile, loving and fiesty spirit, and beautiful soul has put a strong impact on our lives. Fly High Grandma and rest easy. We love you!!! The Stover Family (your Peaches)
