Velda was born August 13, 1933, near Hanover, Kan., to Anthony and Wavy (Turk) Overwald.  She suffered from Rheumatoid Arthritis her entire life but that did not stop her. She was proud of being a lifelong farmer.  She loved bowling before her arthritis got too bad.  Velda enjoyed rides around the farm on her four-wheeler with her little dog, Rusty. Velda enjoyed growing giant red cockscomb flowers and giving them to her favorite people.  In later years after church, she would go to the Wildcat and sit and talk with whomever came in. She was preceded in death by her parents; special friend, Keith Burnett; sisters, Twila Overwald and Wilma Jandera; brother, Elmer Overwald; brothers-in-law, Gilbert Jandera and Frank Linenberger; and a niece and nephew. Survivors include her sister, Regina Linenberger, Washington, Kan.; and a niece and nephew. A memorial fund has been established to St. John's Catholic Church.  Contributions may be sent in care of the Hanover Mortuary.
