Velano was a woman of immense character, sharing kindness, curiosity, motivation, hope to many who crossed her path. One of the most courageous women to ever walk this earth. Always on a mission to complete a project or assist someone in need.
Her life began in small island of Trinidad and Tobago on Feb 2, 1930. Continuing in England and Canada. Her passion for helping people lead her the field of nursing becoming a State Registered Midwife. Her nursing career continued in Edmonton, AB working various locations across the region.

Velano is survived by her daughter Shoela Currey and son in law Mark Detsios, her sister-in-law Dorothy Yearwood, her niece Melissa Ingraham-Bassa. Her legacy surpasses bloodlines.
