On September 11, 1950 she married William A. Shick; he preceded her in death on April 7, 1977. Velma’s most important role was as a loving mother and grandmother.

In addition to her parents and husband William, Velma is preceded in death by one son; Everett G. Shick in 1979; one sister; Alfreda Dusenberry; and two brothers; Howard Bowersox, and Kenneth Bowersox. Family and friends will be received on Friday, April 19, 2019, from 4 – 8pm, at the McKinney – d’Argy Funeral Home ltd, 345 Main St., Brookville, PA 15825.
