Amy Jean Lynch, age 40, was tragically taken from those who love her on April 12, 2018.
A Colorado native, Amy was born on June 3, 1977, in Kremmling, Colorado, to Linda Lynch and Eugene Joseph Lynch. She had lived in Buena Vista for 20 years and was the Parks Department Supervisor there.
Amy loved the outdoors; she could barely sit still inside. She was at peace where she could feel the sun on her skin, beneath the clear Colorado sky. She took full advantage of living in such a beautiful area by skiing, biking, hiking, four-wheeling, playing disc golf and gardening. Her garden is a thing of beauty, always changing, growing, evolving into something even lovelier – a physical manifestation of the love and care she gave to everything and everyone in her life.
Nothing gave her more joy than being there for her family, friends, her dogs Monarch and Buddy, and her cat Kitty. She was an amazing mother who raised a beautiful, strong daughter. She and her husband, Lance, were inseparable, always looking forward to the part of the day when they could come home to each other and be together again. It didn’t matter if they were hiking, disc golfing, relaxing at the hot springs, traveling, walking through the garden or just spending time in the house that Amy made into such a wonderful home; it just mattered that they were together.
Amy was an amazing person whose smile could fill a room, whose eyes twinkled even in the dark. The room in her heart seemed endless, big enough for everyone she met and everything she loved. Her job brought her in contact with everyone in town almost daily; she was always a bright spot in their day, ready with a friendly word and a bright smile. Buena Vista won’t ever be quite the same without her.
Amy leaves behind her husband, Lance Roger Wait; her daughter, Autumn Nicole Johnson; her mother, Linda Lynch; her father, Eugene Joseph Lynch; her in-laws Mark and Pam Wait; and her sister-in-law Tanya Wait.
Gone before her are her grandparents, Lillian and Gerard Neibling and Mary and Eugene Lynch.
Her family can’t express enough gratitude to the doctors, nurses and staff for caring for Amy at Memorial Hospital, and for all the love and support from her family and friends.
