Amy Kathryn Porter April 29, 1973 - March 5, 2018

Amy Kathryn Porter, born April 29, 1973 in St. Louis, MO, passed away on March 5, 2018. She is survived and deeply missed by her mother, Janet Porter of Clayton, MO, her father, Daniel Porter of Bluffton, SC, and her sister, Kristin Porter, brother-in-law, Jack Nguyen and nephews, Owen and Wyatt Porter Nguyen of Berkeley, CA, as well as aunts, uncles and cousins.

We cherish Amy for her bold spirit, her gregarious laughter and her dedicated friendship. Amy loved her work, books, making art, knitting, her cats, and being totally silly.  She studied philosophy at Webster University and American University. She lived in Washington D.C. for 16 years, working in product marketing and management in information and communications technology. She returned to her home town in 2013, where she battled autoimmune and lung related illnesses.

Amy confronted life’s adversities with courage and grace. She is so loved by many, forever.

    Janet, Dan and Kristin,
    Bob and Nadine told us about Amy…we are so sorry; this must be very hard. We loved hearing about her life after Parkrose Ct…sounds like the spunky, full-of-it, happy, fun toddler to 6 yr old we knew! We know you all must miss her very much and that you will always have the memories of her courageous, happy spirit.
    We’ll share the really nice memorial with Kendra and Scott,
    Love, Kathie and Dick
    Come see us in Austin if ever this way.

Leave a Condolence
