Amy Kern-Mitchell was born on April 22, 1972, in Stillwater, to Mike and Linda (Auldridge) Kern. The family settled in McAlester in 1984 when Amy was 12 years old and she completed her education here, graduating with the McAlester High School Class of 1990. She then attended Northeastern University where she earned two master's degrees.
She worked as a speech pathologist, first here in McAlester at the hospital and for some local schools, then moved to Texas where she continued her speech therapy work with a private firm.
Amy was known by her family and friends as a true "animal person". When she was younger, she and her mother, Linda, were involved with the local PAWS group and she always had a pet dog or two.
Amy is survived by her father, Mike Kern; a sister and brother-in-law, Tammy and Bryan Barnette and their children, Ethan and Lucas; aunts and uncles, Mark, Vickie, Margie, Teresa, Duke, John, Sharon, Renee, Greg and Kathy; special cousins, Kenny and Ginger Speer and their children, Mathew and Sarah, and many other cousins and other relatives.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Linda Kern.
The family asks in lieu of flowers, friends make a memorial donation in Amy's name to your local animal shelter.
