Amy loved life, family, friends and gardening. She was salt of the earth and always kind.

Friends gathered at the Kemple's, Laisure's and the El Sombrero back in the 60's.

My dear friend, Carol, would invite me to dinner where Amy prepared roast cooked in a red wine sauce. Anything she did, she did with gusto.

Thank you Amy for welcoming me into your
home and into your life.

My sincere condolences to Carol, Yvonne and her family.

Amy was an angel to me when I first knew her. I was a young, pregnant hairdresser just starting out. When my baby was born she brought me a gift along with a baby gift. She was loved by everyone who knew her. I’ll never forget the joy that flowed from her. She was a gift from God.
