    Veda Irene Massey passed away on Sunday, Jan. 11, 2015, at her home in Boyne Falls surrounde d by her loving family.
    Veda Irene Massey was born on March 7, 1952, to Leo Carl Massey Sr. and BettyLou (Sutliff) o f Boyne Falls, Mich.
    .

    Veda was a lifetime member of the Boyne Falls United Methodist Church.
    .
    Veda was a beloved daughter, sister and aunt to our whole family. She was also a dedicate d teacher and mentor to children of all ages for the 27 years she taught for the Vanderbilt P ublic Schools until poor health dictated an early retirement. For a majority of that time sh e worked with children with special needs from kindergarten through high school. Veda spent m any extra hours during her career coaching and mentoring special athletes preparing them fo r Special Olympic competition. Her gracious heart led her to foster parenting, tutoring and v olunteering (through church and her teaching sorority). Her love of reading and teaching le d her to volunteering for the school library after retirement.
    Although a quiet person, Veda was a person of strong convictions and was willing to work a nd fight for those convictions in many capacities (member of the school board, union office r and negotiator).
    Veda was a person with a multitude of interests and dreams. She loved learning new skill s and enjoyed crafting and needlework projects as well as scrapbooking and compiling family h istory. Every family member has received something in their lifetime specifically crafted fo r them from Veda, whether it be needlework ornaments, mittens, hats, scrapbooks, purses, nec k scarves, or jewelry. Each and every gift was crafted and given with love.
    Another love of Veda?s was traveling and she took every possible opportunity to travel an d explore throughout the United States, taking her mom on many of those adventures with her . Veda could find something interesting in even the most mundane of places and never hesitate d to share new finds with family and friends.
    Veda?s desire to explore new horizons started early. While finishing her university work a nd beginning her career, she decided she would like to teach in Alaska and started preparin g by taking flying lessons that would allow her to fly into some of the remote areas she ha d looked into for jobs. That dream never came to fruition, but it did not stop her from touch ing the lives of many children in a most positive and encouraging way.
    Veda leaves behind a strong legacy to those who knew and were cherished by her. She neve r let fear of the unknown hold her back or defeat her. Her strong faith and indomitable spiri t are her legacy.
