Velma Gillespie

January 20, 1931 — April 7, 2023

Velma Gillespie, 92, passed away peacefully after a short battle with cancer. Her final moments were spent surrounded by family. 

She loved the ocean and the Long Beach area.  Velma loved to travel, especially to Hawaii in the middle of the cold winters.  She loved people, the coast, board games and spending time with family and friends.  She loved Jesus and looked forward to be leaving this broken world and life of pain. Velma was excited to be going home to heaven to be with Jesus forever.   

She is survived by two sons, a daughter-in-law, a grandson and a granddaughter.

A memorial service to celebrate Velma’s life will be held at her home church of Ocean Beach Christian Fellowship in Seaview on Saturday, May 13th at 2pm.   A memorial service will also be held at Milwaukie Covenant Church in Milwaukie, Oregon on June 10th at 2pm.
