Obituary for Sarah Velda Robbins Hadlock

Sarah Velda Robbins Hadlock was born in Vernal, UT 02/07/1920 She left this life, bound for Heaven from New Braunfels, TX on 01/06/2019 at the age of 98. She grew up in Vernal among large extended family. She was a beautiful soul that was always there for her family. She faced tragedy, heartache, good times and bad times with strength and courage.
“Velda” was a young bride, marrying Kenneth Hadlock at the age of 18. The marriage was blessed with the birth of six healthy children. Kenneth worked and always provided for his large family. He sheared sheep up on the mountain early on and later became a successful business owner. She was a stay at home Mom, making clothes for the children, washing, ironing, cooking, cleaning while loving and tending to the children.
In 1962 she left her little home town, moved to Texas with Kenneth and the children to better serve their customers. They leased a building and got started in San Antonio. Also began looking for a place more like home. They settled in New Braunfels where they purchased the Big Red Mercantile building from Henry Gruene. Hadlock & Fox Mfg Co., Inc moved to the new town and new building and ready for business in 1965. Velda worked in the office, directing phone calls and doing their payroll. As the company grew and expanded, they purchased three more Gruene properties. As the little ghost town begin to thrive and come back to life, it was no longer a place for manufacturing, so after 15 years in Gruene the buildings were sold and they build at a new location.
Velda was always active in the community. She and her 2 youngest daughters opened the children’s clothing store “Mom & Tot Shoppe” and enjoyed seeing all the Moms and children over the years. She was a member of civic clubs and school organizations. Most importantly she was a member of the LDS church all her life. For many years she taught Relief Society and Primary classes at the New Braunfels ward.
In her later years she enjoyed being with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was a bright light for her family right up to the end of her life.
She was preceded in death by her parents; former husband, Kenneth Hadlock; sons, Bruce and Bret Hadlock and daughter Lisa Hadlock. She leaves behind daughter, Kenna Luck; son, Lonney Hadlock and wife, Marlianne; daughter, Charlotte Zachary and daughter-in-law, Cindy Hadlock along with 12 grandchildren; 21 great-grandchildren; 11 great-great- grandchildren and one on the way.
The family would like to thank Kirkwood Manor and all the staff for their loving care over the last 2 ½ years.
