Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Dear Dana and Doug, I came across your Amie's obituary and then watched and listened to her 'Celebration of Life' tribute. I am so sorry for the sorrow you are feeling as parents at her passing. It is a bittersweet moment for sure. Yet, I hope you were delighted as was I and many others watching and listening to how she loved life, had fun, was so creative, professional in her employment and never seem to slow down. Her love of Family was mentioned many times, which is a real tribute to her. Especially touching was her noticing others and her willingness to serve and help them in their different situations and needs. Dana, you touched many hearts when you showed the 'yellow blankie' she had kept since childhood. Loved your stories too about the butterflies. May you find comfort knowing she is encircled in the arms of our Father in Heaven who shared her with the two of you. Love, Olivia King

Amie—my dancing and play buddy since I can’t even remember. Hanging out at your house and running back and forth to Jenny’s and all of the neighborhood girls was priceless. In junior high and high school, you were always the queen of style and I thought you were the most beautiful of all us girls, truly, both inside and out.

When I started at Burton Group, I was nervous that I wouldn\'t fit in. From the moment I met Amie, I knew I would be OK. That was the way she made everyone feel. She was everyone\'s best friend, funnest friend and she had a big heart and impacted so many. She was bigger than life. Miss you Amie.

I met you at rave, I was standing in the corner being anti social and in walks Amie , she heads straight for me and says "Hi I'm Amie and I'm hanging out with you" , little did I know that she'd become a close and dear friend , a sister even. It was an honor being your friend . I'll miss the way you could light up a room with your energy. Amie you left an indelible mark on my life and with your passing a hole in my heart that can never be filled. Rest well sister until we meet again

My favorite memory with Amie is that she was always nice to me. When Pippa took my balloon and made it float away, she said, "Dont' worry, the pixie fairy will find it and will take good care of it." I said, "OK, but can't a flying car get it?" Then she said, "Maybe in the future. My friend has a car that can drive itself." I was so impressed. I loved Amie. She was in my dream around the time she died. I will miss her. RIP Amie. Love, Mimi Montgomery (age 9)

My favorite days at MagiCom were the Brainstorming Sessions with Amie. If I'm honest, I wasn't clever enough to follow most of the stuff she was saying, but it was an amazing experience to watch a creative soul just let loose. All ideas were welcome. We laughed until we cried. Eventually, the perfect pitch or idea was discovered. Amie knew how to have fun. She also knew her way around a Vogue magazine and would often absorb one during work hours, which baffled me. She'd say, "No. It's research. It's part of how I get great ideas." Turns out she was right. We love you, Amie.

She always had so much enthusiasm for meeting new people and going to new places. Amie was one of the most bubbly, fun and thoughtful human beings I have ever meet .. I and really mean it when I say I’ll miss her and sending loads of love to her family and friends.

Amie glowed, shined. In my life, I have never met anyone so shimmering and willing to do so. Amie entered my life on a doorstep, or me, hers. I was doing some sort of campain in her area and she said she used to be a dancer, showed me, on her front steps, with a little pirouette. She came to many meetings I had for a hospital for alzheimer's and a revamping of a club, but did not dance there. Every time she spoke, the room simmered, quieted down. Amie was bright, glistened, was full of love, empathy and light, on those nights, as always. All knew it. I would catch her beaming sometimes, knowing what to say to me when we talked, but telling me to, 'Anywayyys.' It was charming and with her impish pixie grin, I knew what she meant. Amie polishes, illuminated things, people, lives. We agreed she would help me with some writing and I obviously needed it, need it. Namely mine, Amie illuminated not only my life, but all others around, I will miss her so. Her shine, her warmth, her smile, her dancing and am sure she is saying 'Anywayyy,' this very minute, as she twirls, as she did. Innumerable, Amies contabution, I still ask myself what would Amie say, think, even now and yet I know she would say 'G-onnn,' as she did. Amie, I will always miss your gleam.

I only knew Amie for about 7 1/2 months and I wish I had been able to know her longer. She was smart and kind and when I told her about my newly formed nonprofit, she jumped in to offer her expertise without me asking. Her advise was very helpful and she even went further and elicited others in her field to look at my site and offer their suggestions too. She was a good person and I value having had her in my life for the short time we had.

I've always known Amy. There are dance photos of us as children, in ballet class, together. I loved talking with her and spending time with her when we were growing up. She was so fun and had such a wonderful personality. She will be missed. Sending love and comfort to the family. I am so sorry for this loss.

I truly don’t have words to explain how brokenhearted I was to see this news. I first met Amie when she was a client of mine when she was at Novell and I was at the company’s PR agency in 2008. We became fast friends. Over the years, whether we were working together or not, I loved getting an out of the blue call from Amie. If I was ever in a bad mood or sad about something, talking to her for even a single minute would instantly cheer me up. She was such a bright light. So, so funny, she could talk for an hour about almost anything and you would be hanging on her every word. I remember last seeing her for dinner when she was in town in Boston not too long before the pandemic I think and we went to a restaurant that overlooks the water and literally closed the place down sitting and talking well past when the other last guests left. All of my love and strength to her family. We were lucky to know her and have her in her lives. Rest peacefully, Amie. XOXO

Amie was fun in junior high and high school, but she was the Queen of Cool at the U. She went to foreign films at the Tower, knew about hidden canyon hikes like Donut Falls, and had a great argument for why Stevie Ray Vaughan recorded the best version of “Little Wing.” Some of my best college memories were made because Amie was such a good friend.

Amie you filled the hearts of so many.... You will be deeply missed! Your smile was so contagious and you were always happy and go lucky. I was truly honored to know you and spend what little time we had together! My condolences to the family she was truly amazing in life and now as an angel who definitely earned her wings!

I was 11 years old, beginning to wonder, “What does beautiful look like?” For a young girl looking up to her 16-year-old cousin, Amie defined charm, confidence and composure. My front teeth slightly turned inward like Amie’s, encouraging me that perhaps I resembled this admired teenager. Her heart shaped face and gorgeous dark hair were complimented by her contagious humor and caring heart. A signature Amie memory in my mind: wrinkling her nose and grinning fiercely, while holding one of her younger brothers in a headlock. Yet, on the wall in Grandma Maxine’s bedroom was a photo of Amie in her ballet attire, poised and breathtakingly beautiful. Bold. Brave. Blithe. Beloved.

Remembrance of Amy Gregory Johnson One thing is for sure Amy impacted peoples lives! She certainly did mine and many of my family members. To begin our story Danna and I have been friends for many years when as our children grew we relied on each other for help in one way or another with each others children. I’m not sure if Danna was helping me fill my open positions at companies I’ve worked for or if I was helping her find jobs for her kids, Amie in particular. Either way, Amy was employed with me at two separate companies. It was at MagiCom that management saw that Amie had a creative side, so she was assigned different projects that allowed her to learn new computer programs and hone her innate marketing abilities. One thing we realized with Amy was that she was always going to push the deadline. It seemed that her creative juices needed the fear of failure to at the last moment come up with the perfect marketing material. We learned we could count on Amie but that it would be at the last minute. The theme of pulling any assignment off at the last minute followed her through the years. After Amy’s divorce she came to live with me for about a year. During that year she wanted to help the family out by driving grandchildren to their schools. Sometimes I would wake up in the morning wondering if Amy was going to wake up and be available soon enough to drive the kids. Sure enough right as I was ready to walk out the door to take them myself she would appear ready and willing to take them. The kids loved Amie. She was FUN! I’m not sure what all Amie entertained the kids with as they were driving that 30 minute drive, but always the kids would ask “can Amie take us please?” Amie will be missed by everyone she said hello to. Her vivacious spirit will travel with her in whatever journey will follow.
