I have known Velvet since 2nd grade at Tolman Elementary.  She was a wonderful artist and a classy lady.  She will be missed!

I'm so sorry and suprised to hear Velvet had passed.  I've known Velvet since first grade and she is one of my fondest/strongest memories from childhood and Tolman.

I also knew Velvet since 1st grade. I walked past her house to Tolman every day. Sometimes we walked home togeather. My wife Stephanie worked with Velvet at the phone company for many years. It is a little ironic we were just talking about her a couple of weeks ago. We last saw her at the last reinuion when some of us played golf at the West Bountiful course. Playing a round there a couple of weeks ago was what reminded us of her. Velvet was always very kind and friendly to both us. RIP Velvet.

What a shocker. RIP Velvet. I have fond memories from 5th grade on. She always seemed a bit more mature that the rest of us crazy kids. I remember visiting with her at the reunions. She was in the foursome with me at the golf tounement at the 40th reunion. I loved her photography.

Kirk, I guess you and I moved to Bountiful about the same time; in 5th grade.

I knew Velvet at Tolman as well.  She was the nicest person, all the way through high school.  She's the only  "Velvet" that I've ever known.   Always thought that was the coolest name. She was a beautiful person and I'm so sorry to hear about her passing.  Make every day count!   Love to all...

I was new and just moved home to Utah from California when I met Velvet at Bountiful  Jr.  She befriended and was always kind to me. I bet she was the best Primary teacher!! I will always think of her fondly.

It has been said that it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, and a day to love them, but it takes an entire lifetime to forget them. Velvet, you will not be forgotten.   My remembrances of Velvet go back to Tolman Elementary.  She had a smile that could light up any day and was a generous, kind and thoughtful friend.  I'm sorry to hear of her passing.  Lucky for the angels in heaven...May her family and friends find peace and comfort in their memories of this wonderful lady!!

I always loved Velvet's name—an adjective with a perplexing noun. For some reason whenever I heard her name I saw deer antlers and imagined a Disney wildlife narrator saying, "...and in the spring the young bucks display their velvet brundage." I got no images however about Larry's green halge. I remember seeing a photo of Velvet when she was chosen as queen of the Job's Daughters in The Davis County Clipper. The photo showed her and others in their beautiful robes that I always imagined to be red velvet—fitting for her I thought. At school I congratulated her and ended up going with her to her church. It was a great experience and my first and last experience with sacramental wine. I remember how loved she was by her church community. What a wonderful, gentle person. Velvet you'll not be forgotten.
