OBITUARY

Vay Ann Huber

Vay Ann Huber, age 67 of Muskegon, passed away on Monday, peacefully at home.

Vay Ann was born in 1952 to Irwin and Maxine Huber. She graduated from Oakridge High School (Salutatorian - Class of '70), going on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree after studying at Case Western Reserve University and Grand Valley State University. Vay worked as a social worker, specializing in geriatrics with the Oceana County Department of Social Services. In retirement, Vay like her mother, indulged in the world of mysteries. She was an avid letter writer, maintaining pen pals all over the globe. Wrapping presents for the holidays, making each gift extra special, was a real talent of hers appreciated by family and friends.

Vay was predeceased by: her parents, her brother Paul, and her son Brant Liebhaber, who took his life in 2011, a loss that clung to her remaining eight years of her life.

She is survived by her siblings: Terry (Mary) Huber, Tom (Barbara) Huber, Philip (Lydia) Huber, Casey Huber, Amy Huber and (Kyle Veitenheimer), and Natitia “Tish” (Steve) Winton; many adored nieces and nephews, as well as extended family and friends, and her beloved cats Maysie and Grayson. Petra Siedenbiedel, Ellen Woolfolk, Mary Pearson, Ann Adams, and Bonnie Decker were confidents and she cherished all of her friendships.

A memorial celebration of Vay’s life will take place on Saturday, October 12th at 11:30 at the Ever Rest Funeral Chapel.

Memorial contributions in her honor may be made to Egelston Branch Muskegon Area District Library, Autism Research Institute, and Faithful to Felines.

I stayed with the Huber family as an exchange student, more than 50 years ago. And since then, Vay and I kept in close touch by writing letters. I feel like I lost a lovable, smart and strong sister. It is so sad. She will always be in my heart.

Prayers and healing strength sent to you all. But especially Amy . I loved Vay’s smile and easy going nature . She was always very kind towards me. I still called her Vay Ann though, stemming back to high school days. Rest In Peace . She did so much work for a local Christmas group of ladies and others , all year long, wrapping and buying gifts! She is truly and angel now!

I also worked with Vay at Oceana DHS, and we stayed in touch after we retired. We would meet for coffee, and sometimes for lunch, catching each other up on what was going on in our lives. She was smart and funny and she will be missed. Rest in peace, Vay.

Rest in Peace Vay. We both worked Adult Services at Oceana County DHS/FIA/DSS etc. When I first started in that office, Vay was a mentor and a dear friend to me from the time I started, to the time she retired, and thereafter as well. My Deepest Sympathies and Condolences to the Huber Family.

I have known Vay Ann since the early 1970s at Case Western Reserve University. We took several courses together especially German. Our friendship has continued up until the present. She was a wonderfully solid person. We took trips together and I last saw her this past summer at her new home. I am sad and burden by this loss of a great friend. Till we meet again on the other side.

Love,

Ellen

I will miss my friend Vay, the talking, the shopping and going
on our day trips; blueberry hunting that we could never find, so her niece would usually end up finding some for us . When ever I
wear purple I will think of her.

I remember as a little girl having tea parties with Vay Ann. I wonder if that's why I ended up collecting teapots as an adult? Many of my favorite teapots were gifts from Vay Ann. As an adult, I spent many hours at Vay Ann's house drinking coffee, and petting cats. I'm going to miss going over there whenever I wanted to, just to visit. I loved to sit and watch Jeopardy at Vay Ann's house, she always kicked my butt on the answers. Christmas will never be the same without my sister. She did most of my wrapping, and I just enjoyed sitting there talking while she wrapped, and pushed the cat out of the way! On Thanksgiving, Barb and I would go shopping, and drop in, for coffee, and to drop off our purchases, so we could fill the car up again! I know I got my wrapping paper obsession from Vay Ann, she and I would have so much fun picking out just the right paper for each gift.

Vay and I were co-workers at DHS in Hart for many years. I will miss her sweet smile and friendly personality. Rest in peace my friend.
