Amy was born on January 24, 1985, and is survived by her parents, Keith and Tonya Bruce, two sisters, Ashley Bruce and Audrey Kieff, her brother-in-law John Kieff, her beloved niece and nephew, Olivia Kieff and Graham Kieff, and also beloved little dog, Lily.
Amy was intelligent, beautiful, and fiercely protective of anyone she held in her heart. She stood strongly for the right of others and especially animal welfare. She would take the time to put all her thoughts and actions in journaling and had a gift for writing. And, of course, she always made time for the latest episode of The Bachelor or Big Brother.
Amy could command a room like none other, taking charge and attention whether to get everyone calmed down, make them listen to her point of view, or just hyped up for the latest Chiefs game she was excited for.
Amy was a strong, sensitive person and the world is a little less bright without her light in it. She touched and impacted so many people in her short life. She will be dearly missed by everyone who knew and loved her.
