Amy was born Sept. 10, 1975, in La Grande. She served as a flight attendant for Continental Airlines for the past 12 years in Houston. She took great pride in her career and in serving as a member of the Continental family. Amy loved to fly and was happiest when in the air between destinations meeting passengers and sharing her sparkling personality.
Amy graduated from La Grande High School in 1996, and attended Eastern Oregon University. She later enrolled at the Air Academy in Vancouver, Wash., graduating in 1997. She was hired by Continental Airlines in 1997 and did her flight training in Houston. She married Todd Kersting, a pilot for Continental Airlines, in 1999 in La Grande.
Amy and Todd continued their lives traveling throughout the world. Amy was divorced in 2008.
Amy loved her friends and family, and enjoyed her two Goddaughters, Kenzington and Carrington in Houston. Amy loved to plan social activities and enjoyed being the life of the party. She always knew the latest fashions and delighted in dressing in pure style.
Amy volunteered her time at the Texas Medical Center serving children with cancer.
Amy is survived by her parents, Patty and Larry Glaze of La Grande; her grandmother, Lucille Glaze in Eugene; her grandparents, Bill and Gwen Baca of Canby; and her sisters, Amber and Aubrey of La Grande; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
The family said Amy will be missed deeply by her family, friends, children with whom she volunteered and others who were touched by her vibrant and caring personality.
