Amy Joan Sauder
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.
