Obituary for Velsie Belcher Elswick

VELSIE BELCHER ELSWICK, age 93 of Abingdon, VA, passed away Saturday, April 13, 2019 at Valley Healthcare in Chilhowie, VA. Born in Dickenson County on December 14, 1925. She was the daughter of the late Bart and Dolly Belcher. She was a member of Macedonia Church of Christ in Abingdon, VA. She was a retired nurse of 42 years from the Old Grundy Hospital. She was preceded in death by her husband, Ruey Elswick, of 50 years, 6-Brothers: Moscoe Belcher, Otto Belcher, Johnny Belcher, Donny Belcher, Ricky Belcher and Michael Belcher; 1-Sister: Elsie O’Quinn.

She is survived by 4-Sisters: Patsy (Ray) Shortridge of Abingdon, VA, Lois (Ralph) Strunk of Atwater, OH, Sue McKinney of Johnson City, TN, and Omega “Mickey” Stiltner of Chilhowie, VA. She is also survived by 4-Special Nieces: Rayetta Taylor, Sherry Baldwin, Scherona Newsome and Verlaunda Self, which shared a special and unique relationship with Velsie.

Velsie was a wonderful sister to all her siblings. To hear her tell it, she was the only “Good One” growing up. She had to keep them all in line. In her later years she didn’t go visit them much but talked to them often on the phone. You could always depend on her telling you all about her day when you called and wanted to know what was happening in your day too. Although she was not blessed with any biological children of her own, she had many throughout the years. She was a mother to all those that she came in contact with in the Pediatric Department at Grundy Hospital in the years she worked there. She was also a mother to all her nieces and nephews, especially Jaime and Brayden Self. She worried about them just like a mother would. She will truly be missed by all who knew and loved her.

Friends may call at the Grundy Funeral Home Chapel Tuesday evening at 6:00 P.M. with services at 7:00 P.M.
