Amy Suzanne Humphreys
It is with profound sorrow that we announce the passing of Amy Humphreys.
Amy was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and, at the age of 5, moved with her family to Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. They lived there for almost 8 years and travelled extensively - an experience which instilled in Amy a lifelong love of travel and other cultures.
Musical from a young age, Amy excelled in the arts and was a gifted artist as well as a talented French horn player and pianist. Composing her first song at age 8, Amy developed those talents, learning new instruments and eventually releasing two studio albums under the name ‘Amy Kress’.
Amy moved from Canada to the Denver area in 2001 and established a close and loving circle of friends. Her quick wit and sense of humour will be remembered by everyone who knew her. She earned her diploma in Architectural Design and graduated at the top of her class.
It was in Denver that she welcomed her two beautiful children, Ethan and Claire. Her children were her life’s greatest joy and they reflect their mother’s energy, tenderness and love of life.
Amy is survived by her children Ethan and Claire, her parents Bryce and Darlene Humphreys, her sister Leah (Taylor) and a large extended family. She is also deeply missed by dozens of friends across the world. Amy was pre-deceased by her maternal grandparents (Anthony and Matilda Velker), paternal grandparents (Archie and Bernice Humphreys) and her Uncle Pat McCarthy. Amy cared for many rescue animals in her life, all with which she has now been reunited.
A service is planned for Saturday, January 19 at Marnie’s Pavillion at the Denver Botanical Gardens, from 2:30 to 4:30pm. All are welcome to attend. The gardens are free for all who wish to attend Amy’s service.
In lieu of flowers, please donate, in Amy’s name, to Foothills Animal Shelter or the animal rescue organization of your choice.
