Amy Himmelspach

1952 ~ 2019

HIMMELSPACH - Amy Louise (Schoenherr) Himmelspach, born January 29, 1952, departed this world on August 25, 2019 to ascend to eternal life in glory with our Savior. She lived a beautiful life of love, joy, and creativity and now is free from the magnificent body that was overcome by ovarian cancer. Amy is forever grateful to Dr. Mae Zakhour and the nurses who compassionately battled with her in this final journey on earth. Amy is survived by her husband of 47 years, Anthony Himmelspach, her children, Samuel and Alicia (Cochrane) Himmelspach, Jacob and Leticia (Herrera) Himmelspach, Laura (Himmelspach) and Seth Powell, Brandon and Julia (Kerwin) Brooks; her grandchildren, Isaiah and Samuel Himmelspach, Monroe and Bennett Knight, Katelyn, Metzli and Nikko Himmelspach, Caleb Powell, Payton and Hudson Brooks; all her six siblings, Robert Schoenherr (Linda Mann), Candy Guerin (Eddie Wilson), Jeffrey (Cherie) Schoenherr, Susan Storm, Mary (Nick) Venechuk, and Ann Bates; and her in-laws, Edward Himmelspach, Ava Himmelspach, and Robert Whittaker. She was predeceased by her parents, William and Mary Elizabeth Schoenherr; her brothers-in-law, John Bates, Joseph Himmelspach, Christopher Himmelspach; her sister-in-law, Susan Whittaker; her grandson, Elijah A. Powell. Amy was a sublime artist of life and love who intuitively and skillfully created family and friendships of immeasurable worth. The first words she planned to say in heaven: “Grandchildren. Your best idea.” Amy was a unique spirit, a true HNL. To know Amy was a gift from God.
