Amy Ardenea Thornton

In 80 years she put a lot of life into living and on October 27, 2021 at 6:09 am she made her final move to enter the Kingdom of Our Lord. Amy Ardenea Donohue Thornton was a loving mother, sister, wife, grandmother, daughter and friend. Amy was born in Atwater, Ohio to her loving parents Gale and Lillian Donohue on December 13th 1940.  She spent her life doing what she loved the most raising her children to continue her legacy. She was an avid craftier, quilter and homemaker who found joy around her kitchen table with her family.  She always found a way to add to our community from starting a 4-H group with her sister and children to volunteering with the Brownies and Girl Scouts with her daughters. She loved caring for others from her family to the careers she held outside the home. Through each of her adventures her circle of friends and family would grow. She enjoyed many years of laughter and love on the farm she shared with her husband and family. She spent her last years making friends at Holzer Assisted Living and even then she would find a way to remodel and move. She was a faithful visitor of White Oak Baptist Church.

Amy is survived by her children Kathy Hanks of Thurman Ohio; Gale and Anita Gill of Mason WV; Linda Stanley of Southside Wv; Cinda and Greg Stalnker of Pt Pleasant Wv and Tina and Mike Elkins of Bidwell Ohio.  A sister Doris and Mike Martin of Letart WV. And many loved grand children and great grandchildren.
