Velma Louise Seuferling



Cameron, Missouri-  Velma, a mom, a grandma,  and great-grandma led a life dedicated to others and was well loved! She passed away peacefully with her family by her side on  April 11, 2023 at 94 years young.  This gentle hearted woman of faith loved God and her family and was a role model for all those she encountered and will be greatly missed.

She was born in Paola, Kansas on December 9, 1928 to William and Effie May (Richardson) Stephens.

Velma married Joseph Seuferling on August 4, 1948 in Paola, Kansas. She was a homemaker and owned/operated Dairy Queen in Cameron and Bethany.  Countless former employees thanked her for instilling a strong work ethic. 

Family was dear to Velma. She was a proud mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Her compassionate spirit, unconditional love, and caring for others was life changing for so many.

Velma is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Joseph; nine brothers and four sisters.

She is survived by six children, Joyce Seuferling, Gladstone, Missouri, Janice (John) O’Connor, Carol (Phil) Norris, Steven  (Loretta ) Seuferling and Rita ( Rodney) Long, all of Cameron, Missouri and Lisa (Brian) Caton, Mound City, Missouri; 17 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren.
