Obituary/Notice

Amy Stephens McNeill, age 95 of Erie, died on Wednesday, June 1, 2022. She was born in New Bedford, MA, on August 3, 1926, a daughter of the late Edmeé Baud and Winston Stephens.

Amy grew up in Bethesda, MD and vacationed at Horseneck Beach, MA until it was devastated by The Great New England Hurricane on September 21, 1938, which was the most powerful hurricane in recorded New England History.  She went on to graduate from Moore College of Art.  While at college she met her future husband, Donald and together they settled in Erie, his hometown.

She was involved in many activities with Church of The Covenant and Hamot Aid Society. She enjoyed her bridge club and was a member of the Kahkwa Club.  She acted as Florence Nightingale for her family and friends, organizing care by cooking, providing rides and whatever was needed at the time.

Amy was also known for her creativity with writing and performing in a musical revue called “This is Your Life” and compiling a cook book called “Pantry Prescriptions” as fundraisers for the Medical Society.  She also made and sent many cards for every occasion.  She was a vivacious woman, loyal, a fighter and some would say opinionated.

In addition to her husband and parents, Amy was predeceased by her twin brother Winston B. “Steve” Stephens, Jr. and her sister Edmee’ Josephine “Jo” Davis.

She is survived by her 3 children:  Kathleen M. Cameron and her husband, Dr. Jeffery Cameron, Kim M. Reinhardt and her husband, John, and David C. McNeill and his wife, Denise.  She is further survived by 5 grandchildren: Scott Cameron, Colleen Hunter, Dr. Bryant Cameron and his wife, Lauren, Aileen Cameron (Dan Tesch) and Daniel Reinhardt, and ten great grandchildren: Ashlyn, Liam and twin boys, Camden and Caden Hunter, Leana, Leslie, Logan, Livia Cameron, and Landon and Weston Cameron-Tesch.

The family would like to thank Interim Health Care, Home Instead and Lakeland Area Hospice who supported Amy in her final years.
