The life of our baby girl, Amy Lynn Coombs, ended on Father's Day, June 18, 2000, as a result of injuries sustained in an auto accident in Idaho. She was 17.
Born June 22, 1982, in Salt Lake City, Amy lived in Vancouver for the past six years. She graduated June 15th with honors from Prairie High School. She received several awards, including the President's Outstanding Academic Achievement Award from President Clinton, the Mayor's Youth Peacekeeper Award, Thespian Star award, and awards for community service and citizenship. She was a member of the National Honor Society and active in drama, photography, Amnesty International and the Renaissance/Leadership team.
She is survived by her mother and stepfather, Terry and Tom Hegerle of Vancouver, WA; father and stepmother, Micheal and Deb Coombs of Salt Lake City; stepbrothers, Nick, Terry, Steve and Nate Tarabetz, all of Salt Lake City; grandparents, Bob and Gwen Cracknell of Salt Lake City; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends in Salt Lake City and the Portland/Vancouver area. And a very special friend/fiance, Dan Shores of Vancouver.
Amy was full of life, and in return, in her time of death she gave life, donating her heart, liver, kidneys and tissue so that others may live.
A scholarship fund was set up in Amy's name. Donations can be made in care of Prairie High School, 11500 N.E. 117th Ave., Brush Prairie, WA 98606.
Good Bye Amy Baby, I love you, Daddy
