Whenever I was in the  old neighborhood. I would stop by her house and she would catch me up on everybody. I remember when I was little she  would keep an eye on us while we waited for the school bus. She was a very nice lady. I send my heart-felt sympathy to Steve, Tom, Nancy, Jeff, Charlie, Sarah, Rachel and all her grandchildren. Rest in Peace Mrs. Beidenbach.

Our heart-felt sympathy to Steve, Tom, Nancy, Jeff, Charlie, Sarah, Rachel and all her grandchildren.  Her family was the joy of her life...not just her immediate family but the rest of us as well.  She holds a very special place in my heart.  She will be greatly missed.   Amy,  I know you are in God's heavenly kingdom.  May you rest in His peace.

I'd like to share some memories of my Aunt Amy. I can still feel and hear the sounds of waking up in her house. On an early spring morning I'd be sleeping on fresh sheets on her pull out couch. I'd walk barefoot into her kitchen, the tiles cool from the open window. I'd smell coffee and she would say "Well Good morning sleepy head!" Little did she know I was laying there listening to her and my mom chat for an hour.. also that chiming clock woke me up. | I remember her fridge would be covered in pictures of family and friends. Around her house you would find flowers and cardinals. I remember getting hit in the head by a falling nut in her driveway. | The only time I remember her being mad at me was when I tried to wear shorts to Mass. I'd stay with her for a week during the summers and one summer i came up without calling.. she didn't like that much either, but she let me stay. | At the last family reunion she told me she liked my now fiance. I like having her approval.| I've missed her while she was alive, but it doesn't compare to how missing her feels now. We will always love you, Aunt Amy. I know you're in heaven telling stories about your grandkids to Grandma or anyone who will listen. RIP Xoxo

Rest In Peace Amy, and all the best to your loved ones.
