Amy J. Veldman, age 45, of Plymouth peacefully entered heaven to be with her Lord and Savior Friday morning, April 1, 2016 at her home. Having battled ovarian cancer for eighteen months, she has now experienced complete healing.

She was born December 19, 1970 in Saginaw, MI to Lyle and Beth (Manwell) Ohman. She graduated high school from Rochester Hills Christian School (MI) in 1989 and Northland Baptist Bible College Dunbar, WI in 1994 with a bachelor’s degree in English education. She lived in Kaneohe, Hawaii from 1994 to 1998 teaching 6th grade at Ko’olau Baptist Academy before moving to Plymouth where she taught part-time at Faith Christian Academy through 2015.

On November 10, 2000 she married Neil M. Veldman of Plymouth who cared for her as best friend and love of his life. God blessed them with the treasured gift of four children, Abigail (13), Zachary (12), Makayla (10) and Caleb (10). Amy loved meeting the needs of her family as a faithful homemaker.

She cherished family time of any kind - day trips, walks, bike rides, vacations, camping, or simply spending time together at home. She was known for her kindness, beautiful smile, and sweet spirit.

Amy was a member of Faith Baptist Church in Plymouth where she faithfully used her talents as a church pianist and vocalist. She also enjoyed working with children.

She loved reading and sought to pass that love on to her children and students. She enjoyed a love of gardening which she shared with her mother. She became an avid quilter, a passion kindled by her dear friend and kindred heart Beth Pyle.

Survivors include her husband, four children, parents: Lyle and Beth Ohman of Vassar, MI; two brothers: Matt (Christin) Ohman of Palmer, MA, Mike (Jessica) Ohman of Plymouth; one sister: Laurie (Andy) Rodriguez of Lincoln, NE; her mother-in-law: Jean Veldman; and two brothers-in-law: Jesse (Amie) Veldman, Cory (Alicia) Veldman all of Plymouth; and twenty-one nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her father in-law: David Veldman; and two unborn children.

Funeral services will be held Tuesday evening April 5, at 6 p.m. at Faith Baptist Church in Plymouth. Pastor David Kimmel will officiate. Burial will follow on Wednesday in the Woodlawn Cemetery. A visitation for family and friends will be held at the Faith Baptist Church, 1223 Krumrey St., Plymouth from 3 p.m. until the time of service at 6 p.m.

Amy felt greatly blessed by the countless people that gave of themselves to support and encourage her and her family throughout her illness. Amy recently expressed to Neil her desire for him to show that same generosity and share the love of Christ by “paying it forward” to others in their time of need. A memorial fund will be established in Amy’s name and be used for this purpose.
