Velma Lavern Miller, age 78 of Batesville, passed away on Friday, January 15, 2021 at St. Andrews Health Campus. The daughter of William and Lucille (Spicer) Meadows was born on March 28, 1942 in Greensburg, Indiana.
Velma married Maurice Miller on May 20, 1960 in Greensburg. She was a member of the Berean Baptist Church in Batesville and worked at Batesville Casket Company until she retired in 2000.
When Velma was younger, she enjoyed spending time outdoors, going fishing and camping. Vacations at the beach were always another favorite. Velma liked to knit and crochet, sometimes while her watching her favorite game shows or racing on TV. She enjoyed getting in the car and taking off to pick up her sister and brother and going places with them. Of course, most special to Velma, was being a grandma. Her children will tell you the grandkids always got away with more than they did. She will be dearly missed by all of her family.
