AMY MARIE MATHEWS Amy Marie Matthews was born at the old St. Vincent hospital in Santa Fe on Thanksgiving Day, 1960, to David and Janice Matthews. Amy passed from this life August 13. Proud of being a "tomboy", she was a top athlete, competing in tennis, soccer, swimming, track and diving during her school years. She graduated from Santa Fe High School in 1978. Amy earned her degree at Lewis and Clark College in Oregon. Shortly afterwards, her adventurous spirit took her to the Kenai Peninsula of Alaska. There she was a foreman of a salmon packing plant, created her first business canning smoked salmon, and solidified what would become a lifelong passion for the outdoors and her natural surroundings. After moving back to Santa Fe, Amy continued as a successful businesswoman working at her family's business, Healy Matthews. Later, she followed her dream and opened up Double R Design with her husband Scott. She was beloved by both employees and customers for her integrity, untiring commitment to her work and for her genuine spirit. Amy and Scott Taylor rekindled a childhood friendship and married June 11, 1995. They chose each other as lifelong partners to share in the outdoors, nature, and simply being together at their home in the Galisteo Basin. She was predeceased by her mother, Janice, and is survived by her husband, Scott; stepson, Cameron; father, David; brothers, David and Tom and their families. Amy will be deeply missed by her loving husband, family and friends, and her adoring menagerie of pets. Services will be held Saturday, August 24 at 11 am at the Church of the Holy Faith, 311 East Palace, with a reception following. A celebration of Amy's life will be held after the reception at Amy & Scott's home. Maps will be provided at the service.
