Amy Hansmann (Wilde)
A SPECIAL NOTE FROM AMY:
“God blessed me and my family with many loving friends and neighbors who have provided meals, prayers, anointing, and food during my journey. Thank you for the kind priests and deacons who have celebrated Mass at our home and while I was in the hospital. Thank you also to so many who helped with rides to doctors, picked up kids, brought meals, sent gift cards, bought groceries, and most of all, prayed for me and my family. –Amy”
Amy Estelle Hansmann “Aimers”
Amy was born in St. Paul, Minnesota on December 19, 1969 to Cecilia (nee Kukla) and Arthur Wilde. Her parents raised the family in St. Paul near the Phalen neighborhood. She graduated from St. Bernard’s Catholic High School but attended Johnson High School for one year. Amy had a girlfriend named Laura who had a cousin named Doug Hansmann. Laura decided to introduce the two and Doug and Amy began dating. The two were married at Maternity of Mary Catholic Church on January 29, 1994. While looking for a home in the Twin Cities, they found a beautiful house in White Bear Lake. Amy took child care courses at Century College and started an in home day care called Amy’s Angels. Besides caring for other children, she raised their four children as well. The kids attended St. Agnes Catholic School and Amy was very involved with volunteering there and with the kids’ numerous activities. The whole family became members of St. Mary of the Lake Catholic Church for many years and Amy was a part of the Moms in Touch Prayer Group. For the last ten years, they have been very dedicated members of St. Pius X Catholic Church. Through St. Pius, Amy has been involved with the Women’s Enrichment Group, the Parish Council, and any volunteer opportunity through the church. Throughout her life, her family was always her number one priority. Her time was spent caring for them and spending time with them. Her second favorite thing was hanging out with her girlfriends and constantly laughing. Amy brought happiness to all who knew her.
