Amy was a hard worker and was employed for over 17 years as a mold shop supervisor with Duo Form. In her spare time, she enjoyed shopping at Goodwill where she would take advantage of the 50% off Saturday each month. She loved going fishing and playing with her grandchildren. Amy was also a shoe fanatic and she enjoyed trips to the salon to get a relaxing pedicure. Her sense of humor was unmatched, and she was a fan of the Michigan State Spartans, much to the dismay of her husband. Amy loved jamming out during road trips with her family. Her favorite place to visit was Kansas City with her daughters, where she felt the most free.
She was happiest when surrounded by her kids. She had a shining personality that brought out a lot of laughter. Amy worked hard to provide the best for her family, and she loved every minute of it. She was so proud of the work she completed and would often go above and beyond for everyone.
