Amy Lynn Gust

Amy Lynn Gust was born February 9th, 1971, in Kansas City, MO. She was received into the gates of heaven November 23, 2015.
Amy is remembered by her husband Tom Gust Jr., her grandfather Robert Ramsey, her daughter Molly Frick and fiancé Jake Ashley, granddaughter Kelsie and expected grandson. Her step-daughter and son in law Katrina and Daniel Manley, granddaughter Eve. Her step-daughter Kandie Rogers and fiancé Donnielle Pugh. Also by her son Brendon Ramsey.

Amy Gust was a woman who worked and built her whole life around love and compassion. She worked as an Activities Director, at Golden Living Center for over 18 years, in Odessa, MO. She loved her job and her “people”.
She surrounded herself with memories of good times with her husband, children and grandbabies. She was always trying to make someone smile, and always had an ear to listen when needed. On the off chance she wasn’t working you could find her on the back of the Harley with Tom, her husband, enjoying the open road or at Starbucks having coffee. Amy enjoyed decorating their home with the pictures she had taken with her family. Sharing their memories was something she truly enjoyed.

Amy was a strong and determined woman. She loved with all of her heart and gave what she had. She may be gone, but will never be forgotten. She will sorely missed, especially by her husband Tom, who will always remember her loving and gitty smile.

In lieu of flowers, donations are suggested in Amy’s honor, to the Golden Living Center, Activities Department, Odessa, MO.

A celebration of life will be held Monday November 30th, from 10:30am until 1:30pm at The Pavilion Event Space, 14831 E Hwy 40, Kansas City, MO.

  10. Your loving husband Tom on November 29, 2015 at 1:22 pm

    Amy my love, only you may understand what I am saying. You are the love of my life, the smile on my face, the light in my eyes and the breath I breathe. Those smiles you gave me gave my life meaning and made my heart skip beats. Such a giving, loveing, beautiful person. In our travels together we learned so much about each other. I don’t feel those trips are over. I will never be the same without you, you completed me. You will be by my side forever. I love you with all my heart and soul.

  11. From your loving husband Tom, on November 29, 2015 at 7:51 pm

    First, let me say Amy you were my best friend and I miss you!
    As I know so many of your friends and family are feeling your loss. You were a woman who was so known for your love and selfless gift of friendship. You were a person who never knew a stranger and once you lived someone you lived them with your whole heart.

  12. Ron & Virginia on December 14, 2015 at 9:21 am

    We still can’t believe you are gone Amy! I don’t think we ever will! Love and miss you dearly.

  18. Nancy Ramsey on November 20, 2016 at 1:35 pm

    Amy we are approaching the day you left and I never got a chance to say I love you or goodbye. Time does not heal the wounds. I always enjoy your visits to me. Yes I feel you. I know when you are around. I love when you send the red birds to visit. I’ve been missing them lately but I like to believe it finally means we are both at peace and know we will see each other again. No one can take our love for each other or memories from us. They are what keeps me going. You will always be my big sister. Yes we had our differences like all siblings do but it never changed my love for you. Always in my heart and on my mind. I hope you and Connie and Nana are having the best time together reunited in our fathers house together. Love, Nancy

  33. Molly on May 25, 2020 at 12:20 am

    Your always on my mind mom its hard not having you here. I get upset thinking about how you never got to meet my son it hurts me but i know it wasnt your fault or in your control. I was so use to calling you for everything and always wanting your opinion and guidance and i felt secure having that from you and now that it is gone its really hard i just keep telling myself i gotta grow up and figure everything out on my own i know you would want that from me. Kelsie still has everything you got for her before you passed even as things have worn so wont get rid of it she feels apart of you is still there and she keeps you and toms pictures on her wall and i catch her talking to them sometimes and saying i know my grandma is still here. You will never be forgotten and i love you and hope your proud of the mother i am today.

  34. Molly on August 23, 2020 at 2:33 pm

    Mom, I have done a complete change on my life and I know you see it and how hard it was. Im a better person today and still a great mother, you had these strict rules when I was younger and I resented you for it and now I look back and think wow I completly understand why you did it. I wish I got to tell you this in person but I completly get why you did things the way you did growing up. I didnt like that you worked so much I felt like we had no time together and Now I realise you worked hard to keep a roof over my head and food on the table and I understand it was never about that you didnt want to be with me, you were insuring I was taken care of. I hope you can see me today. Im modivated to do better and be better every day. Thankyou for everything you have done for me and how you raised me. Love you mom

  35. TomGust on August 23, 2020 at 7:07 pm
