Amy was born on October 7, 1976 in Niles, Michigan. A strong-willed and spirited child Amy was fiercely independent and always out to show the world she could do anything; and she did.

Amy loved to laugh and no one could tell a story like her. Above all Amy will be remembered for the humor, love, and friendship she brought to this world. Amy was such a great friend to so many and was the fiercest champion for all her friends.
She is preceded in death by her Grandparents: Donald & Marion Pieper, Claire Pieper, and Charles & Rosemary Sears and her beloved cousin: Ryan Pieper.
Amy is survived by and will be lovingly remembered by her best friend and fiancé of 25 years: Mike Mirras; her parents: Charles & Phyllis Sears; her biological father: Danny McEntire; her brothers: James McEntire and Brian Mirras; sisters: Rachael (Jason) Burns and Sara (Jeff) Glide, and Shari (Paul) Preston; her beloved niece and nephews: Faust, Serene and Kaid Glide; Her Aunt: Georgia Outman; Her Uncle: Tom (Audie) Pieper; and cousins: Erik Pieper, Holly Barbour, Cam Leitz, Buck Hickman, Laurelin Outman, Thomas Outman, and Bobby Outman.
