Obituary for Velma Alverta Banks

Velma Alverta (Winnett) Banks, age 95, of Mustang, OK, formerly a resident of Snyder, OK, went to be with our Lord and Savior at Yukon Integris Hospital on Monday, August 5, 2019. She was born June 12, 1924 in Beggs, OK to Silas and Melissa (Helliem) Winnett and grew up in Snyder, OK. Velma married the love of her life, Royal A. Banks in 1942. The couple settled in Snyder where they owned a farm and raised their only child Linda Ellen Stafford. They moved a few more places, even traveled with their camper a few years before settling in Mustang, OK in 1980 to be closer to her family. Velma was a devoted Christian, loving wife, mother and grandmother. She was very proud of her family and loved being a MawMaw to her grandchildren, great grandchildren and great great grandchildren. Velma loved the holidays because that meant spending time with her family. She would spend hours cooking and preparing for her company. Velma was known for her quirky and funny sense of humor. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her. Velma was preceded in death by her parents Silas and Melissa Winnett, her beloved husband Royal A. Banks of 63 years, three sisters Dorothy Winnett, Trilby DeShazo and Lena Stephens, three brothers Henry, Herbert and Hubert Winnett. She was survived by her sweet, loving and caring daughter Linda Ellen (Banks) Stafford and husband Larry of Mustang, granddaughter Teena (Stafford) Mowdy and husband Rick of Mustang, grandson Todd Stafford and wife Dedra of Mustang, five great grandchildren and twelve great great grandchildren, several nieces and nephews. We want to give a special thank you to Gran Gran’s Place in Yukon, OK, for their special care and love they gave to Velma.
Funeral service will be held 10am on Saturday, August 10, 2019 at the Lakehoma Church of Christ, Mustang, OK with interment following at 3pm in the Fairlawn Cemetery, Snyder, OK.
