She was born March 25, 1932 at home in Elmore, Minnesota to Orville & Lila Dobson. Velma graduated from Elmore High School in 1950.

On August 6, 1954, Velma married the love of her life Duane D. Meyer. During their life together, they had 3 children. She loved spending time with her family more than anything. Velma’s words to her family included, “Remember me with smiles and laughter for that’s the way I’ll remember you all. If you remember me with only tears and sadness then don’t remember me at all.” She is survived by her children: Douglas (Kathy) Meyer of Austin, Minnesota, Dawn (Charlie) Davis of Mound, Minnesota, and David Meyer. She has 6 grandchildren: Mitchell (Stephanie), Marshall, Nicole, Amanda, Drew, and Tracey Meyer and 5 great grandchildren. Velma is preceded in death by her husband and parents.
