Velma B. Buchan, age 86, died on March 21, 2018, in Minneapolis, MN. She was born on May 26, 1931, in Fort Wayne, IN, to the late William and Velma McDonald, and graduated from Central Catholic High School in 1949. Velma married Winfield Buchan on June 29, 1949. Velma and Win spent the majority of their married life in Hoagland, IN, retiring to Bradenton, FL in 1992. Velma was an avid sewer, needlepointer, bridge player, and cook. Her laugh could fill a room and she made friends easily. Velma was outspoken and independent. She was not afraid to load the kids in the car and drive cross-country. While some were briefly left at various stops, the whole crew always made it back home. She was preceded in death by her husband Winfield, daughter Carolyn, and brother Anthony. She is survived by sister Ilene Winans (H. Charles) of Bradenton, brother William (Diana) of Naperville, IL, daughter Kathleen Moccio (Vincent) of Minneapolis, MN, sons Bruce (Christina) of Fort Wayne and Daniel (Luanne) of Decatur, IN, grandchildren Joe, Clif, Brent, Ned, Nan, Jay, Vincent, Wayne, and Andrew, as well as seven great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
