Amy Bauer

Amy Ann Bauer, 41, passed away September 28, 2017 at Mercy Medical Center.

Amy was born June 25, 1976 in Des Moines, Iowa to Randy and Margaret (Scrignoli) Busick. She graduated from Scavo/Lincoln High School. Amy was compassionate, caring and nurturing by nature so it was only fitting that she was currently working for Mercy Home Health and Hospice Services. She was a member of St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church in Carlisle and the Italian American Women of Iowa. Amy loved spending time with her family especially her grandchildren. She was an avid Green Bay Packers and Chicago Cubs fan. Amy also loved being outside with her dogs, fireworks and her Harley Davidson attire.

Amy is survived by her loving husband of 15 years, Dan; children, Kayla and Kody;
grandchildren, Zae and Maizie and Amiyah Mae due in February; brother, James (Elizabeth Dainty) Busick; nephews and nieces, Gino, Elena, Dominic and Bella Busick; and a host of extended family, beloved friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents.

Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. Monday, October 9, 2017 at St. Anthony Catholic Church, 15 Indianola Road followed by burial at Glendale Cemetery. Visitation will held from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, October 8th with a presentation by the Italian American Women of Iowa at 2 p.m. and a Vigil Service at 3:45 p.m. at Hamilton’s Southtown Funeral Home, 5400 SW 9th Street.
