Amy was born in Reed City, Michigan and lived near there nearly all her life. She graduated from Reed City High School and pursued a career in the medical field, as a Medical Assistant, after studying at Baker College.
She had recently moved to North Port, Florida to be near family.
Amy is survived by: her Parents, Dave and Cindy Badder, and Connie Gardener; her siblings, Patrick (Kali, Ryan) Badder, Chris Badder, Courtney Pontz and Chad Pontz; her three daughters, Tahlia, Marai, Alayna.
Her facebook page is filled with pictures of her three daughters and when describing herself Amy simply said, “Three Fantastic Daughters. That’s me.” When sharing a family picture, she said, “This is my life. The reason I breath. I love them all soooo much!! We are beautiful.”
Amy lived life at full throttle. She seemed to put all her energy into anything she wanted to do. She was quick to share her wit or wisdom or a smart-ass remark, with a smile. Her family describes her as smart, witty, funny and bold. A light that could not be contained. That light will continue to shine through those she loved, especially through her daughters who carry many of her positive characteristics.
A recent post on her Facebook page is summed up, “Don’t try to act like a Christian. God is not looking for actors.” Amy was a Christian who brought her strengths and struggles to God.
Amy will be remembered and missed and her life celebrated.
We know that life is hard, and even unbearable at times, but we are never abandoned by God. II Cor 4:8-10
We grieve, but not as people without hope. I Thessalonians 4:13-18
And now dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again we also believe that when Jesus returns God will bring back with Him the believers that have died.
We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet Him ahead of those who died. For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a commanding shout, with the voice of the arch angel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the believers who have died will rise. Then together with them, we who are still alive and remain and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever. So encourage each other with these words.
