Amy Michelle (Bailor) Gilbert Obituary
AMY MICHELLE (BAILOR) GILBERT, age 49, of Riverside, CA, passed away on December 15, 2015, with her family by her side. She is at peace after suffering a recurrence of cancer. She was born June 2, 1966, to Ardice (Mitchell) Bailor and Keith Bailor in Riverside, CA, where she grew up and had children of her own. Amy loved life and embraced it fully: through music with her beautiful voice; writing using her incredible gift with words; laughter, fine wit and sense of humor with her family and friends. She had an incredible ability to remember movie quotes and all kinds of trivia that has always amazed everyone she knew. Her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ carried her through many trying times and brought great joy to her and to those she shared it with. Amy was preceded in death by her oldest son Randall James Alvarez and her parents. She is survived by her husband Jonathan Gilbert; her sons Craig (Emily) Alvarez of Eden Prairie, MN, and Brett Alvarez of Lubbock, TX; her brother Kirk (Christi) Bailor of Vacaville, CA; her sisters Karen Rowe and Alyson (Byron) Cram, both of Riverside, CA; as well as aunts, cousins, nephews and nieces. A celebration of Amy will be December 28, 2015, at 11 am at Magnolia Presbyterian Church, 7200 Magnolia Ave, Riverside, CA, 92504. As Amy loved life and beautiful colors, the family asks that those attending wear cheerful bright colors in her honor. A reception will be held on June 2, 2016, in conjunction with her 50th birthday celebration. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Amy's memory to Make-A-Wish Foundation, 3521 Main St, Riverside, CA 92501 (wish.org); St Jude Children's Research Hospital, P.O.
