September 10, 1925 - February 5, 2021
Flora Evelena Farrell, 95, went home to be with her loving Heavenly Father whom she had devoted her life to, on February 5, 2021. Flora was born in Miller, Missouri on September 10, 1925. She was preceded in death by her parents, Emery Van Buren and Sara Rena (Ross) Welsh; three sisters, Naoma Vance, OnaLee Holland and Mary Jones; two brothers, M.V. and Emery (Junior) Welsh; two son-in laws, Harv Welch and Bill Bekemeier and one brother-in-law, Leon Garner.
She will be missed by so many. Flora leaves three daughters, Norma (Paul) Brockman, Gloria Welch and Vickie Bekemeier; seven grandchildren, LeAnne (Danny) Pfeiffer, Pamela Murphy, Kirk (Karrie) Welch, Valerie Ferris, Nicole LaFevers, Stacy (Gary) Gann and Beau (Ashley) Bekemeier; ten great-grandchildren; two great-great grandchildren; one sister, Nyanzia Garner and numerous nieces and nephews.
Flora was a member of Covenant Baptist Church and had retired from The Missouri Chest Hospital after 37 years of service. Flora was a special person who loved the Lord and was loved by so many people. There is no way to ever know the number of people that she touched through her lifetime. Flora had a true and deep love for her family and all those that she came in contact with. Her love of the Lord is what made her live the most wonderfully happy and caring life, which she always gave God all the credit and Glory. Flora will be remembered for many years to come because that type of person doesn’t come along very often, but oh how wonderful for us when they do.
The funeral service will be held on Saturday, February 13, 2021, at Covenant Baptist Church located at 1350 East Industrial Road, Mount Vernon, Missouri 65712, under the direction of the Fossett-Mosher Funeral in Mt. Vernon. Visitation will commence at 10:00 a.m. to the time of service at 11:00 a.m. Internment immediately following at the Orange Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Highway K, Aurora, Missouri.
