She also would babysit for other family members.  Velma played a significant role in the lives of her parents in their twilight years. She dearly cared for them.

Hoskins; eight grandchildren; sixteen great grandchildren; three great great grandchildren; one sister, Corliss (Derk) White; two brothers, Lonnie    Radford and George (Cindy) Radford, a host of nephews and nieces, family and friends.
