Of Moorefield, surrounded by much love, Amy passed away peacefully, safe in the arms of Jesus, at McMaster Children's Hospital, Hamilton on Saturday, June 27, 2020 at the age of 19. She was born February 24, 2001 in Stratford. Beloved daughter of Ray and Paula (Bauman) Sauder. Big sister of Anthony and Colton. Cherished by her grandparents Nelson and Martha Sauder and Eugene and Vera Bauman, many aunts, uncles and cousins. Absolutely adored by her little Sunday School class, and other cancer kids she met (and entertained!) while undergoing treatment. Amy will be remembered for "leaving a little glitter" wherever she went. She lived life with a purposeful intensity, knowing her time on earth could be cut very short. She loved arts and crafts, photography, and all things Hawaiian! Her Music CD recording was a special dream come true. Amy loved people, all kinds of people! To quote her friend "She loved unconditionally, unreservedly, and lived intentionally." Amy leaves a legacy of loving her Lord and Saviour, intensely and unashamedly. Her faith was the anchor of her soul, it kept her going through the awful treatments and surgeries that she was subjected to, and the many disappointments and losses she faced over the past several years. Amy, we love you, and you will be missed and forever remembered. Special thanks to Dr. Portwine and all the oncology nurses on Ward 3B2, and the rest of the staff at McMaster Hospital. Your loving care for Amy during her treatment and especially in her final days, will be a treasured memory. The family will receive friends at the Donegal Mennonite Fellowship Church 7021 Perth County Rd 147, Atwood, ON N0G 1B0, on Perth Line 147 in the center of Donegal on Tuesday, June 30, 2020 from 2:00 to 4:00 and 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and on Wednesday, July 1, 2020 from 2:00 to 4:00 and 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Please be advised due to Covid-19, Provincial restrictions are still in place and only a limited number of people are and allowed in the building at one time and social distancing must be observed, so please be patient as there may be a wait to see the family.

Your daughter/sister/granddaughter was clearly a joy to all who met her. I came to this conclusion after reading the thoughtful obituary. Having been led to this story of Amys life by chance I was compelled to comment to you (This has never happened before). Although taken at such an early age, this beautiful soul has done much to teach many through her struggles, her dedication to others and especially her faith. Thank you for allowing my heart to be touched by your family member by publishing her obituary so eloquently. Without a doubt God continues to embrace her.
With respect,
Bill Byrne

We don't know you people but were touched by the obituary. Such a reassurance to know another one is safe home. May God bless and encourage you through this difficult time and fill your hearts with love for others like your daughter had.
