Amelia "Amy" Bliss, 72, of Berlin Heights, passed away on January 18, 2022 at Gaymont Nursing Home. Amelia, daughter of the late Forest "Bud" and Frances (Boyer) Bliss, was born on January 21, 1949 in Fremont, Ohio and attended Fremont Schools. She graduated from Fremont Ross in 1967. Because her family could not afford to send her to college, Amy worked many jobs to put herself through BGSU, graduating in 1971 with a Bachelor's degree in education.
For three years Amelia taught in Cleveland. She then started teaching special education at Berlin-Milan Middle School. She loved the students, faculty, and the community. She retired in 2001 and started to provide tutoring, which she was doing until the pandemic started in 2020.
In addition to her parents, preceding her in death were two sisters, Patricia (Thomas) Egan and Nancy (Jack) Ross.
Surviving are her sisters, Mary and Barbara of Berlin Heights, Maida, of Jacksonville, FL, and brother, John (Lynn) Bliss, of Corona, CA; and four nieces and nephews. Also surviving is Amelia's Friday Night Ladies Dinner Group and her friends at St. John's Lutheran Church. She loved singing in the choir, often having solos in the summer.
Per Amelia's wishes there will be no visitation. A celebration of life will be held at 10:00 AM on Saturday, June 18, 2022 at St. John's Lutheran Church at 106 Scheid Rd, Sandusky, OH 44870. Burial will take place at McGormley Cemetery in Ballville, Ohio.
