Todd, Velma June 7/22/1929 - 4/2/2022 Otsego Velma June Todd of Otsego passed away Saturday morning, April 2, 2022 at Ascension Borgess Hospital. Velma was born July 22, 1929 in Orangeville, Michigan, the daughter of Ernest and Lois (Sanders) Burd. She was a hard worker beginning at a very young age. Her parents both worked and, as the eldest child, she filled in as mother to her five younger brothers. She began working at the Five and Dime at only 14 years old. Velma graduated from Otsego High School in 1948. On June 10, 1950 she married Mark LaRue Todd in Otsego. Velma was employed by Checker Motor Cabs, working on the assembly line and as a painter for 40 years. She was very industrious, working full time and raising her family. Velma processed and canned many of the vegetables grown in her garden, she was a great cook and her family never went hungry. She made the best Banana Pudding and her chocolate chip cookies never lasted long, even when she tried to hide them from her adoring children. She loved spending time at the lake, sun bathing, watching the water, and teaching her children how to swim. She enjoyed reading, antiquing, and adding to her collectables. She was a member of the Church of God in Otsego. Velma's greatest joy was her family. Survivors include her children, Patricia (Larry) Spitzner of Otsego, Kenneth (Sylvia) Todd of Otsego, Keith (Deb) Todd of Otsego, Ronald Todd (Chris Eskelinen) of Tampa, Lois Zimmerman of Otsego and Karen (Jon) Bush of Newaygo; 14 grandchildren, 24 great grandchildren and brothers, Jerry (Cheryl) Burd of Otsego and Richard (Jeanne) Burd of Ocala, Florida.
