Velma Constance
Chatwin - Somers (McArthur)
1928 – 2009

Velma Constance Chatwin- Somers (McArthur) quietly on September 28, 2009 at the Boyne Lodge in Carman.

Shewas born June 10, 1928, the youngest child of 13.  Velma worked for the Bank in Waskada before being transferred to Roland, MB in the early 1950s where she lived until moving to the Boyne Lodge in Carman in 2007.

Velma was a very community oriented person. She loved to do yard work and garden. Her garden would be full of veggies and she would give them all away to friends and family. She also loved to dance and attend the Miami Fiddle Festival.

But the most important thing in Velma’s life was her only daughter Eleanor (Bud) and only grand-daughter Nicole (Brandon) and great grand-son Ethan (Linde).

Velma was predeceased by husbands, Claire Chatwin 1976 and Frank Somers 2006, her daughter Eleanor Stuart 2009 and all her siblings.

Left to mourn are her son-in-law, Bud Stuart, granddaughter Nicole Linde (Brandon), and great grandson Ethan, along with numerous nieces and nephews.
Service has been held at the Roland United Church on Tuesday November 3, 2009 with interment at a later date.

Velma has gone to be with Claire and Eleanor.
