Amy A. Wind

March 21, 1943 ~ June 11, 2022 (age 79)


Amy A Wind (Auer) passed away peacefully, June 11, 2022 at her home in Saugerties, New York. 

Amy was born on March 21, 1943, to Albert and Ethel (Sparling) Auer. Amy is survived by the love of her life, Frederick Wind, her spoiled dog, Angel, her children, Nancy (Matt) and Amy Cruise and her bonus children, Laurie (Joe) and Freddie. She is predeceased by her son Anthony (Christa) Cruise and 8 infants lost at a very young age. Amy was the proud grandmother to Jessie, Luciphine, Ashley and Evelyn as well as bonus grandmother to Heather (Jake) and Steven. She is also a great grandmother to Emery, Paisley, Antonio, Bella and Mia. She is predeceased by her loving sisters, Rachel, Nellie and May and her loving brothers, Frank, Huey, Tommy and Henry. She is survived by her loving brother Al (Deb) Auer and Genevieve (Estil) Griffin, her many nieces and nephews as well as her god children, Henry Daniels, Patricia Schoenweiss and Tinamarie Williams. 

Amy was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, and friend with a zest for laughter, jewelry, Avon and reading. With a heart of gold, Amy always lent a helping hand to those around her and considered her neighbors in Hickory Ridge Apartments her family. Amy owned and operated the Saugerties Dairy Queen for many years and worked alongside her husband Fred in the real estate business. Amy had an immense love for children and would happily read to them from any book they brought her, even if it was the dictionary. She could be found on weekends, playing the lotto at Jon’s Quick Stop in Lake Katrine, cavorting in the casinos, or watching the Yankees. She never let anyone leave her house empty handed. She enjoyed watching the birds from her window every morning, eating strawberry ice cream and saw the good in everyone no matter their flaws. She was known to be a bit feisty, protesting with the Tea Partiers, never hesitating to speak her mind. No matter what though Amy always made sure you knew she loved you. Her humor and spirit will be greatly missed. Her family will always love her, a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck. 

Aligned with Amy’s wishes, no public services will be held. In lieu of flowers and donations, the family requests one small act of kindness be done for someone as Amy did in her daily life.
