Our sunbeam, light of our lives, Amy Danielle Kline Amigoni, 41, was taken from us unexpectedly on Friday, April 13, 2018 in Research Medical Center, Kansas City.
At age 6, Amy wanted to be either a green bean or a paleontologist when she grew up, but she instead became an accomplished and artistic chef. Growing up, Amy loved to explore and spend time outside. She was a competitive athlete and loved to play softball and basketball. She was also smart – she was elected to take the SAT when she was 12 years old. She loved music and art and would learn as many new things as she could to be with her friends.
Amy never knew a stranger. Those that met her instantly had a loyal friend. She loved her family and shared her love of nature and all animals with her 2 girls. Amy was magnetic with her sharp wit, silly sense of humor, and her deep compassion. She was absolutely hilarious. She radiated “be who you are” and it was infectious.
Amy is preceded in death by her infant son Hayden Kaufman, grandfather Richard Kline of Green Valley, AZ, and grandfather Howard Thompson of Salina, KS.
Amy is survived by her husband Federico Amigoni of Kansas City, Mo, daughters Jolie and Ava White, parents Max and Iris Kline of Dodge City, KS, sister Sara (Matt) Campbell and nephew Keegan Sell of Summerville, SC, grandmothers Donna Kline of Green Valley, AZ and Eleanor Thompson of Salina, KS, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins, beloved pets Bird Reynolds and Josie (love birds), Cato and Kitty (cats) and Mr. Oliver Pickles (Dacshund).
Sunday, April 15, 2018, many families’ lives were changed by Amy’s selfless decision to be an organ donor. She is as giving in death as she was in life. As we are celebrating Amy’s life at her favorite place in the Grand Tetons National Park later this year, donations can be made in her name to the National Kidney Foundation at the following link: https://team.kidney.org/campaign/Amy-Kline-Amigoni-Memorial- Visit Amy’s memorial page to share stories or photos: https://www.facebook.com/amy.kline.amigoni/
Amy would say to not be sad, but to “just rub some dirt on it”.

I will never forget all the fun and wonderful times our family had with Amy and her family. Amy was always there to help. The military life brings wonderful people into our lives and Amy was definitely one of them. My condolences to her beautiful daughters and family.
