Amy attended and graduated from Bridge City High School, where she played the trombone for the school band. She was a member of their CNA program where she trained for her ultimate career as a nurse. Amy was made to be a nurse, with her heart of gold and ability to make anyone feel at ease, she was a blessing of a nurse to all of her patients.
She loved to help out in any way that she could and left an impact on all she met. Her pride and joy was her son, Alex, often enjoying taking him to the beach and going to water parks with him. They had the best time together and she couldn’t have been more proud of him.
She was a woman of many hobbies but often enjoyed the smaller things in life, like being outdoors, crafting anything her creative mind could come up with, deer hunting, but most importantly, spending time with her son.
Amy had a special place in her heart for her bird, Casper and loved her best friends, Kris and Katrina whole-heartedly. Her creative mind, kind heart and amazing sense of humor will be missed by all who had the chance to know Amy.
