She spent most of her life as a loving full-time mom & grandma, but enjoyed her time working at Burris School in Muncie, IN before having children. She also volunteered with The Huddleston House & Mrs. Leapleys Special Education program at Western Wayne Schools.

She is survived by her son Michael Amick, granddaughter, Emily Amick-O'Dwyer, daughter-in-law Teresa and grandson-in-law Shaun O'Dwyer, as well as her sisters Toni and Sue& her nieces and nephews.
