Amy had a passion for art and music. She performed all across the midwest and her artwork adorns the walls of many family homes. She is fondly remembered by her siblings for creating rhymes on the spot while they did their chores.

    Our prayers are with the family. Amy has always been there for me and wrote the best card when we lost our son. She was always positive and kind and I will truly miss her. Even tho we hadn’t seen each other over the past years, I will always remember the good times we had, riding the bus, walking to each house, sleep overs are to name a few.
