Velma was born in San Angelo, to Samuel and Alicia Navarro Calderon, where she was raised with her sister. She attended Lake View High School and graduated in 1997 and then attended American Commercial College and obtained a paralegal certificate. Her life became complete in 2002 after she received a true gift from God, her miracle baby, Layla Tabone. She loved being a mother and was truly the epitome of what a mother should be. She loved her Pomeranian Lily, chances are if you saw Velma you saw Lily right beside her. Velma loved baking and cooking, especially during her favorite holiday, Christmas, where she would have the whole kitchen filled with food. She was a best friend to anyone and everyone and always willing to help a person in need.

She is preceded in death by her parents and grandparents.

Survivors include her daughter, Layla Tabone; a sister, Juanita Calderon Garcia and husband Ray of Palestine; a nephew, Anthony Calderon; two nieces, Amanda Marie Moran and Rachel Thibodeaux, all of San Angelo; a great nephew, whom she loved like her own grandson, Samuel Antonino Calderon; many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Honorary pallbearers will be Anthony Calderon, Art Arteaga, Raymond Torres and Ruben Navarro.
