GAHANNA — Amy (Fox) McLaughlin, 38, of Gahanna, passed away Thursday, Dec. 16, 2010, at the Ohio State University Medical Center with her loving family by her side.
Amy was born on Aug. 22, 1972, to Chuck and Judi Fox in Alpena, Mich. She grew up in Holland and graduated from Springfield High School class of ’90. After high school, she attended Bowling Green University and graduated in 1994 with a B.A. in Sociology. After college she moved to Columbus where she most recently worked at Sports Medicine Grant.
On Feb. 2, 2002, she met Jeremy McLaughlin, on Oct. 31, 2002, he proposed to her. A year later they were married on Oct. 4, 2003, and they celebrated over seven years together before her passing. Amy was a devoted and loving wife, mother, and daughter; she adored her husband and children. Amy would call home and talk to her parents every day, usually starting off with the phrase; “I have a quick question.” She enjoyed baking at Christmas and in the summertime a frozen margarita, or an Italian ice. But in her quiet time she found solace in reading, and writing poetry or journaling. Amy through her life was a caring and compassionate lady who touched many lives and helped so many without praise or compensation. She will be missed by all who knew her.
Her survivors include her husband, Jeremy; children, Abigail and Nathan; parents, Chuck and Judi Fox; brother, Todd (Veronica) Fox; mother-in-law Donna McLaughlin; father-in-law, Donald (Charlene) McLaughlin. She is also survived by two brothers-in-law, one sister-in-law, three nieces and three nephews; and grandmother, Margaret Martinson.
The family will be receiving friends at the Schoedinger Northeast Chapel, 1051 E. Johnstown Road on Sunday from 2 to 6 p.m. Services will be held at the funeral home on Monday at 11 a.m. Burial will follow at Mifflin Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to her children’s college fund in care of the Ohio Tuition Trust Authority, and the American Cancer Society. To share a story about Amy or to sign an online guest book on the Internet visit www.schoedinger.com.
