VELMA PEARL (BREEDEN) BOSICK
October 8, 1933 July 23, 2019
Velma, age 85, slipped peacefully from mortality to immortality on Tuesday, July 23, surrounded by her family.
Velma was born in Monticello, Mississippi on October 8, 1933 to Anna Lee (Ballard) and Henry Charles Breeden.
She met her husband, James Frank Bosick in Victoria, Texas where she had completed high school and was working as a dental assistant and Jim was stationed at Foster Air Force Base. After serving alongside her husband for 20 dutiful years as a fighter pilot's wife, they made their home in Colorado Springs, Jim's birthplace. They have been wonderful parents to four children. After relocating to Colorado Springs, Velma went back to school and became a Medical Assistant until she retired in 1985.
Velma was a lifetime member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and served faithfully in multiple callings.
She cherished her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, as well as singing, doing needle work, gardening and genealogy.
Velma is survived by her husband, James Frank Bosick, her four children Joseph Theron (and Kimberly) Bosick, Judith Ann (and Joel) Guttormsen, Jerome Alan Bosick, John Randolph Bosick (and James Schweigert) and 11 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.
Her parents, Anna and Henry, her stepfather, Amos McClendon, and her brother, Charles Lee Breeden, who all preceded her in death, were there to greet her and welcome her "home".
A memorial service was held in her honor, on Thursday, August 1, at Pikes Peak National Cemetery.
