Our loving, beautiful, Mom/Grandma/Sister/Auntie/Friend, has gone home to be with her Heavenly Father and loved ones that have passed on before her. Velma Edna Reed passed away February 3, 2022, at the age of 80 in Murray, Utah. Born in Fruitvale, Idaho, on May 24, 1941, to Harold and Violet Burt, Velma grew up in Idaho with her 3 sisters and 3 brothers. On March 24, 1959, she married the love of her life and her eternal companion, Larry D. Reed. Together they welcomed 13 children into their lives. Velma was an amazing homemaker. She could create a meal with whatever was in the fridge, which her sons lovingly referred to as, “refrigerator stew.” All her children and grandchildren loved her baking ability, especially her cinnamon rolls. During her life she worked as a waitress, nursing assistant and tax preparer. Her biggest and most valued job was as a mother and homemaker. She loved to garden whether it was flowers, fruits, or vegetables. Velma is survived by her 13 children, Earl Reed, Jeanne Marcial, Wess Reed, Jess Reed, Wayne Reed, Julianne Lopez, Dea Reed, Jack Reed, Shawn Reed, Jared Reed, Jason Reed, Rebekah McKenna, Rachel Reed, 4 of her 6 siblings, 43 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren and 1 great-great granddaughter. Her husband of 54 years, Larry D. Reed, died in 2013. The family would like to thank the CNS nurses Melanie & Roger who cared for her during her time at the Lodge in Riverton and Tender Care hospice services for their support at the end of her life. Funeral services will be held Wednesday, February 9th, 10:00 am at Premier Funeral Services, 67 E. 8000 So. Midvale, with a viewing one hour prior to services. Interment will be at the Utah Veterans Memorial Park, Bluffdale, Utah.
