ESCANABA, MI – On February 5, 2018 Jayme Lee Oman, age 32, went to be with the Lord. May his tender heart and troubled mind find peace in death that couldn’t be found in life.
He was born in Escanaba, MI on September 14, 1985 to Jeffrey Oman and Katherine Farrell. Jayme was raised in the Gladstone area and attended school there. He recently moved back to the area from Louisiana.
He had a quick smile, was a loyal friend and had a strong sense of faith and family. He loved his Grandma Elaine’s cooking, and often asked for her recipes so he could learn to make them when he was in Louisiana.
Jayme will be deeply missed by those close to him. Although he struggled to believe it Jayme had a lot of people who loved and prayed for him.
He is survived by his father Jeff, brother Josh Oman and sister Mikayla Mathias. He is further survived by his paternal grandmother Elaine (Lachance) Oman, aunts Lee Anne Oman, Escanaba, and Sandy (Ed) Wilson, Gladstone, uncles Bruce (Tina) Oman, Menominee, Michael (Debra) Farrell and Brian (Sue) Farrell of Escanaba as well as cousins Stephen Oman, Laura (Paul) St. Louis, Emily Oman, Jenny (Bryan) Miller, Morgan Wilson, Marshall Wilson, Amanda Farrell, Meghan Farrell, Sommer (Russell) Watson, Alex Reilly and Starla (Aaron) Anderson. Jayme is also survived by a large extended family and many friends.
The family would especially like to thank Aunt Lee Anne for her unwavering support throughout Jayme’s life, and cousins Deb and Eb Hoehl who were so supportive of Jayme during and after his residence in Louisiana.
Jayme was preceded in death by his mother Kathy, who passed away on December 31, 2017. He was heartbroken that they had such a short time together after his return to Gladstone. He was also preceded in death by paternal grandfather Stephen Oman, and maternal grandparents Francis “Fritz” and Nona (Sayen) Farrell.
Family will receive friends Thursday, February 15 from 4:00 until 5:30 PM at the Skradski Funeral Home in Gladstone. Pastor Ron Westman will be officiating the service at 5:30 PM. A luncheon will follow at the Gladstone American Legion, 802 Delta Avenue, Gladstone, MI 49837. Please bring a dish to pass.
