Mutt, as she was affectionately called by her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, will be missed by all who loved her. She had a wit about her that was like no other and she was a take charge person.

Mrs. Veal is survived by her loving children, Debbie Bridges (Greg) of Sylvester and Kathy Spurlin (Tuck), also of Sylvester; step-children, Christopher Veal (Tracy) of Texas, and Jerri Lynn Cooper (Randy) of Tifton; grandchildren, Aleisha Golden (Ethan), Kyle Bridges (Whitney), Justin Bentley (Liz Ann), Thomas Spurlin (Emily Futch), Jay Gray, Ashley Gray, and Cristin Seller (Jason) Kylie Veal, Aric Veal, Austin Veal, Justin Schmandt, Cassandra Jones, Brandi Nobles (Deven), Randy Cooper (Callie), Danielle Cooper; she was blessed with 20 great grandchildren.
