Amy Morrissey was a long-time favorite bartender at a local restaurant. She was also a loving and caring mother and grandmother. In December 2015 she was diagnosed with Leukemia and recently succumbed to her illness. Now, her family is in need of help.

Her diagnosis came as a shock to her family, but through thick and thin Amy continued to always fight bravely. At one point she went into remission, but the illness came back with a vengeance. She leaves behind four young children and two grandchildren. Though her children are proud and do not want hand outs, they are still in need of significant financial support.

A fund-raising page has been setup for the family to offset funeral costs and for expenses following the loss of their matriarch. You can make a donation at the link below.

Any contribution you can make would be greatly appreciated. A young, precious life has been taken far too soon and Amy's death has left a void in the lives of many.
