Velma Acorn Obituary, Death – Velma Irene Acorn, who was 66 years old when she passed away on May 13, 2023 at Kings County Memorial Hospital, did not suffer from any discomfort during her final days. Velma was a remarkable example of courage and resiliency, as she fought cancer valiantly despite its many challenges.
Velma was the much-loved wife of Robert (Alfie) Acorn, a wonderful mother to her four children, Michelle (Roger) Nowe, William Acorn, and Coral Adams (Cody), and the most cherished and wonderful grandmother to her grandchildren, Tristen (Chandler), Ashley, Nikki, Steven, and Devin. Velma’s son Daniel Adams passed away before her, and she is survived by three of her children and one of her grandchildren.
Velma Ross Buell Livingstone was born in 1956 to Lillian Ross Buell Livingstone and Elmer Livingstone. Velma was the sister of Ivan Buell (married to Mary), Harry Buell (married to Merle), John Livingstone (married to Brenda), and the late Clarence Livingstone (married to Judy), Sadie Walker (married to Harvey), and Clayton Buell (married to Chris).
Velma was the kind of person who, once you got to know her, you couldn’t help but adore her, and as a result, she leaves behind a whole community of individuals who have been changed by the compassionate and kind way she lived her life. Including all of her nieces and nephews, whom she loved very much and cherished deeply, her friends and confidants.
With whom she loved to laugh and carry on, her coworkers and the residents at the Gillis Lodge, who made her work life so special, her fellow church members, with whom she prayed, and the many other people in her life who were so fortunate to have known her. She will be greatly missed by all of these people. If you ask different people, you’ll get different answers on what exactly Velma was famous for.
She was Robert’s one and only true love, and the only person whose attitude he would gladly tolerate from anybody else. She was the most generous and unselfish mother her children could have asked for, and she would have given each of them the world if she had the means to do so. She was known as Ma to her grandchildren, and Ma was the kindest, most genuine, and most loving grandmother that anyone could ever dream for.
