Amy is a loving sister, daughter, aunt, cousin, and friend. She spent most of her life dedicated to helping others. From taking care of her little brothers when they were young, to helping with her parents until her health declined to where she physically couldn’t. Even then, Amy was a should cry on, an ear to listen, and would give advice when needed. With this she never asked for anything in return.
She inherited her strength from her father, able to bear the weight of the world on her shoulders, so you didn’t have to; and, she got her mother’s heart, not only for people, but for animals as well. She would be your biggest supporter in anything you put your mind to, and she was proud of her family.
As we say our last good-byes, we lose our rock, our beloved sister, and close friend, but she wants to continue helping others even after her time on this earth with her loved ones is through, she will live on not only in our memories, but in those that she helps with her life-saving donation to others. Amy you are leaving us too soon. Thank you for all of your love and support throughout our lives, know that we love you, we will miss you, and we will never forget you.
The family extends a special thank you to the Anmoore Fire Dept. and EMS, the Randolph County EMS, the ICU staff at Davis Medical Center and the staff at Autumn Lake at Nella’s.
