The children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of Velma Kagler are rejoicing with sad hearts as, at the tender age of 93, Velma peacefully went home to heaven after complications from a fall on Easter Sunday. Velma was born in Booker, Texas and raised in Grants Pass, Oregon . Her husband, Dick Kagler, preceded her in death in 2005 and her daughter Judy Niemeyer in 2015. She is survived by her sons Richard (Patricia) Munger, Robert (Kathy) Kagler, her daughters Beverly (Ray) Fischer and Candy (Sam) Self, 2 sisters, 13 grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren. It would take volumes to describe mom's love of the Lord, her family and her friends. Her life was well lived and filled with love. She will be missed greatly but is now in heaven and rejoicing with the angels and her parents, brothers & sisters, her husband and daughter. As once described by a local reporter she was a "Living Treasure". In lieu of flowers please made a contribution the The Hoffman Hospice Home at 4401 Buena Vista Road, Bakersfield, CA 93311. Visitation will be Thursday, May 4th at Mish Funeral Home, 120 Minner Ave., Bakersfield, CA from 5 to 9 PM. Funeral services will be Friday, May 5th, at Rosewood Retirement Center (Activity Room), 1301 New Stine Road, Bakersfield, CA.
