OBITUARY

Amy E. Klinger

December 24, 1963May 20, 2020

Amy E. Klinger, born December 24, 1963 and raised in Highland, IN, passed away from cardiac arrest on May 20, 2020 with her husband of 33 years, Ron Klinger, by her side. She is survived by her sister Victoria Phillips (Scott) of Chesterton. She was preceded in death by her parents Victor and Nancy Lypka of Highland.

Amy graduated from Highland High School in 1982 and Purdue Calumet in 1987. She worked as an administrator in several locations, including Mercantile Bank, American Cancer Society, and most recently, City of LaPorte Indiana Community Development & Planning Department. Amy was “the most organized person I know,” according to her sister. She was a lifelong Cubs fan and asked a Sox fan to marry her. She was delighted when the Cubs won the World Series in 2016, thinking she would never live to see it. Her favorite food was a Chicago-style hot dog. Amy struggled with health issues her entire adult life, from lupus and renal failure. She was the recipient of two kidney transplants, forever grateful for this gift of life from donors. Her goal was to live as a normal healthy person.

I didn’t know you that well Amy but I really enjoyed spending holidays with you. I enjoyed our conversations very much. You had a great sense of humor and you were so easy to talk with. I still remember that wonderful hand soap you got me for my birthday. Beautiful scent. I’m just sorry we didn’t get to spend more time with each other. God Bless

We had a great girls’ weekend at Vicki’s Bed & Breakfast with Amy, Vicki, Joneva, Christina, Brenda, Tina & myself! It didn’t seem that long ago but time goes by so fast ... who knows!! I will always remember Amy’s sense of humor!!

I will be watching the service since I’m in Michigan & we still have a Stay at Home Order. My thoughts are with you Ron & Vicki ... I know you will miss her.

One day Amy called us and said she wanted Art to come and check out the house because her outside intruder system showed someone outside her house. When Art went down to check, it was Ron.
Everyone had a big laugh over this comedy of errors. Amy didn't recognize Ron on camera!
