Velma E. Dieckmann
Velma E. Dieckmann, age 90 of Batesville, died Tuesday, November 12, 2019, at St. Andrews Health Campus.

In addition to her husband and parents, she is also preceded in death by her brother Ron Deffner.
Visitation is Friday, November 15, from 9-11 a.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home with a prayer service by the Daughters of Isabella at 9 a.m. to be followed by a rosary service. Funeral services are at 11:30 a.m. Friday at St. Louis Church with Rev. Stan Pondo officiating and burial in the church cemetery. The family requests memorials to the St. Vincent de Paul Society or the Special Olympics.

Was out of town so was not aware of Velma's passing. Willie, I have shared with you on many occasions how special your Mother was to my Mother - and I enjoyed my many visits with her.
