Velma May Berryhill

On January 19, 2024, Velma May Berryhill met the love of her life and her Lord and Savior at the gates of heaven.

Working alongside her husband on a farm in rural Jasper, they raised three children, Elene Fitchpatrick, Ann Powell and Carl Berryhill.

Velma's loves were her family, her grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren. She loved gardening, and quilting and has made numerous quilts that will forever be cherished by the children and grandchildren. She was a long-time member of the First Baptist Church in Jasper and served several years as part of the kitchen committee.
