Mrs. Dupree was born Sept. 21, 1915 in Rockhill, one of 17 children, to Charlie Mac and Clara Streetman.

Velna was called by three other names; Honey by her husband, Mother by her children and Nanny by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. These were the names she treasured because the people she loved most used them.
