Veda Vinson • April 25, 2023

Veda Marie Vinson passed away in Pensacola on April 25th, 2023:
Veda was a mother to everyone she met, she never met a stranger. She had a love for all things Elvis, her dogs, and Tweety. She had the biggest heart, in the smallest 4’ 11.5” body you’d ever seen. Anytime you came to her house, you were welcomed as family, which included her picking on everyone. She was a firecracker who could brighten up the room, from cracking jokes and Indian leg wrestling.
She was preceded in death by son Brian Arthur Vinson & Daughter-in-Law Jean Foster Watkins
Survived by husband Kenneth Vinson, 8 Children; Randy Watkins & wife Fran, Darrell Watkins, JJ Grant & wife Trisha, Neil Vinson & wife Jacqueline, & Tina Vinson. 13 grandchildren; Tyler Watkins & wife Kelli, Matt Moseley & wife Courtney, Jessica Hudgens & husband Jimmy, Cody Watkins, Garrett Witazcek, Zachary Witazcek, Riley Witazcek, Haley Grant, Payton Grant, & Jackson Hildreth. 6 great grandchildren; Riley Watkins, Austin Watkins, Jordyn Watkins, Maverick Watkins, Jamison Hudgens, Kason King-Hudgens. She also leaves behind a host of beloved family & friends.

A visitation will be held at Pensacola Memorial Gardens Funeral Home on Monday, May 1, 2023 from 1pm until the service begins at 2pm.

Veda was a beacon of light, if you would like to please feel free to wear a favorite color to honor her memory. Her favorite color was purple, but feel free to wear any color you choose.

    My goodness, I only ever met you once but you made enough of an impression where I thought I knew you all my life. The way you opened your home to me on my move back to Oklahoma is a memory I often think about. RIP
