Amy Sue (Matthews) Haehn, 50, of Kennedy, N.Y., formerly of Sugar Grove, Pa., passed away Monday, Aug. 25, 2014, surrounded by her loving family after a courageous battle with cancer.
Amy was born Aug. 29, 1963, in Kittanning, Pa., a daughter of the late William Matthews and Nelda (Norbeck) Matthews, who survives her of Sugar Grove, Pa.
She was a cheerleader and a graduate of Eisenhower High School. Amy was a member of a dart league for a number of years. She loved being outside gardening and planting. Amy enjoyed crocheting, cooking her special "tuna pie" and also, trucking throughout the United States with Tom. Her dogs, Chin-Cho, Moon, Ruby and Elly were a large part of her life, and there was always that occasional trip to the casino, and her SyFy movies that made her smile. Amy's most absolute joy was her children. Her strength, determination and will to live touched many people and she will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
