Amy had three sisters, Dana (Brian) Niedge, Jodi (Trent) Merritt, and Jamie Ekker and two brothers, Shane (Tamara), and Clint (Collette) Paul.
Amy married the love of her life, Justin Paul Batey, on April 20, 1991. They have two children, Christopher (Brie) Batey and Trista Batey (Brandon) and seven grandchildren, Austin, Kadence, Ayla, Ethan, Christopher II, Brooke and Blake.
Amy is the heart of all her family. She was always thinking selflessly for everyone as she treasured all of her relationships in her roles as daughter, granddaughter, wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend. She also was a primary teacher for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for nineteen years and loved her primary children.
Amy was known as the best cook/baker in town! She kept all the holiday traditions of all her family. Her home-made cookies were always comforting. She earned a name from her nieces and nephews…they called her “Aunt Cookie” or “Mimi” or “Mammie”. She was a kind and loving woman. Everyone begged her to make an all-family favorite of “Camposano” spaghetti. She canned, gardened, crafted, and made beautiful keepsake boxes.
Amy had a home that was a sanctuary for everyone who came there. Her family and friends felt like they were walking into a cozy blanket wrapped with security and love.
She had many interests throughout her life but towards the end of her life she became a master axe thrower. She was a true “patriot” and believed in fighting for her freedom and protected the truth. She was always giving all she had and loved road trips and teaching or giving advice of keeping the faith. She enjoyed a good rock concert especially if it was her favorite, Bon Jovi. She was adventuring out and trying new things especially if it involved a new restaurant and she was always finding new recipes and putting her own twist on it to create perfection.
Amy was cherished and loved by all those whom were close to her and is survived by her husband, father, siblings, children, grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
