Amy Kinney Macken
August 15, 1975 – July 16, 2020
Surrounded by her loving family, Amy Kinney Macken passed away peacefully on July 16, 2020. Amy’s passing was unexpected as cancer had unknowingly taken over her system.
Amy was born in Stockton, California to Jay and Barbie Kinney. She graduated from Franklin High School in Stockton and attended Delta College. Amy travelled around with the love of her life, David Macken, as he drove semi trucks around the country before they settled down in Moses Lake, Washington in 1995. Amy left the workforce to rear her three precious daughters; Jamy, Emily and Ashley. She later took on a part-time job with Tommer Construction.
Amy was always seen cheering her girls on at band concerts, school activities and parades. She loved hearing them sing at church and in the nursing homes. She took pride and joy in everything to do with her daughters.
Some of Amy’s notable favorites were the color purple, tie dye and race cars. Local short track racing was a large part of Amy’s life. This Macken family activity was aided by Amy’s “behind the scenes” work. She was the one who made sure everyone had everything that they needed for race day.
After accepting Jesus Christ as her personal Saviour, Amy gladly shared her faith with others and served faithfully in the nursing home ministry at Faith Baptist Church in Moses Lake.
Amy was a supportive mother and a loving wife. She loved others deeply, offered a helping hand whenever a need arose, and always wanted to make everyone happy. The positive impact of her life on her family, friends, and those in the community will live on in the memory of all who knew her.
Amy is preceded in death by her father, Jay Kinney.
She is survived by her husband David Macken, her daughters Jamy, Emily and Ashley Macken; her mother Barbie Kinney, her brother Josh Zarate (wife Jessica), nephew Wyatt Zarate, niece Jada Zarate; her Aunt Patty, Uncle Ken, cousins Tara, Seth and Kennedy.
A memorial service for Amy will be held at 10:00AM on Wednesday, July 29, 2020 at the Pioneer Memorial Chapel, 14403 Road 2 NE, Moses Lake, Washington.
