She was born on January 23, 1947, in Grand Rapids, the daughter of Ira and Charlotte (Weaver) Duckett. Mary was a 1965 graduate of Kalamazoo Central High School. On July 3, 1964, she married Norm Veldt, and they shared 58 wonderful years together. They settled into the Mattawan community where they built a home and Mary worked at EPC, until her retirement in 2009. In 2014, the couple moved to Climax to be closer to their children. Mary had attended Second Christian Reformed Church and West Leroy Bible Church. She prayed daily for her many family members and friends.
