Family, friends and loved ones gathered Sunday afternoon at the Williams Lake Stampede Grounds to honour the life of Amy Morgan.
Amy was a member of the Wild West Riders. Her team opened the emotional service with a tribute ride, where Amy’s horse was led into the arena.
Amy (nee Kelly) was born to John and Glenna in Williams Lake on June 5, 1985.
She attended school at Crescent Heights elementary, Mountview elementary, Tatla Lake Elementary Junior Secondary and completed at Cariboo Adventist Academy.
She worked at various jobs in her youth, including a parts delivery driver, Tim Hortons and for more than a decade at Caribou Ski Source for Sports, with her most valued job being a stay-at-home mom.
Amy married Kris on June 22, 2007 and they were blessed with two sons, Ashton born June 19, 2009 and James, born Feb. 18, 2014.
Amy was a lover of many things — bike riding, horseback riding, family and her friends, to name a few.
In April of 2016 Amy, Kris, Ashton and James moved to their dream property at Pine Valley just 10 days before she passed away.
Amy’s legacy will continue to live on as Kris, Ashton and James will follow through with her hopes, wishes and dreams on Ponderosa Farm.
Amy is survived by her husband, Kris, sons Ashton and James, parents Glenna Edlund and John Kelly, brother Jason, sister Crystal and their families.
Anyone wanting to help the Morgan family with financial expenses can do so at Caribou Ski Source for Sports. The store will, in turn, match the first $5,000 received. Generous donations, as of last week, had already surpassed $4,000.
