Amy Elizabeth Tryon
1970 - 2012
On April 12, 2012, with her beloved Razzle and Jasmine at her side, Amy Tryon the daughter of Jemi and Larry; sister to Kerrie; Aunt to Jayson, Kyle and Lauryn; friend to horse and human alike;
and spouse to Greg, passed away.
As we struggle in the loss, we are comforted by the friends, family, supporters and strangers who have taken us under their wings.
We ask that all take a moment to reflect on Amy whether that little girl on a pony, that girl on the horse, that woman representing her country in the Olympics, or the woman serving her community as a firefighter. We hope that brings a smile and a bit of comfort as it does us.
Although Amy was intensely shy, her evident joy in the world was brought out in the presence of animals. She was fiercely determined and focused. Nothing was insurmountable or preordained to her.
She just wanted to see if she could...
Her family asks that remembrances be made to your local humane society, and that each of us remembers anything is possible if we try.
