Oct. 21, 1959-April 20, 2013
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Amy Lou (Inderrieden) Unrau on Saturday, April 20, 2013 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
Amy passed away peacefully, with her family by her side, after a courageous, long battle with cancer. She was 53 years old.
Amy was born to Norbert and Georgia Inderrieden on October 21, 1959 in Detroit Lakes. She grew up and attended school in Detroit Lakes, until marrying Lawrence Henry Unrau on September 18, 1982 and moving to Winnipeg.
Amy prided herself on being a devoted and loving mother and Nana. She loved to be with her family, and to crochet and garden. She worked for many years at Phil-Mar-Brook Bindery in Winnipeg.
Left to cherish and remember her are her husband Lawrence, of Winnipeg; four children, Amie-Jo (Kyle) Leshovsky of Detroit Lakes, David Unrau of Winnipeg, Ted (Janell) Unrau of Bonneyville, Alberta, Canada, and Suzanne Unrau of Winnipeg; six grandchildren, Jaylynn, Braxton, Lucas, Austin, Dylan and Scarlette; five sisters, Vivivan (Gary) Challen of Riverview, Fla., Noreen (Roger) Sanders of Frazee, Georgeen (Charlie) Jagger of Rochert, Rose (Richard) Roforth of Frazee and Jane (Jim) Clarey of Detroit Lakes; as well as two sisters-in-law, Lanette (Richard) Corbett of Detroit Lakes and Dorothy Unrau of Winnipeg; and several nieces and nephews.
Waiting to greet Amy upon her passing were her parents, Norbert and Georgia (Babe) Inderrieden; and her brother, Butch Inderrieden.
In keeping with her wishes, Amy was cremated with a small service in Winnipeg on Saturday, April 23.
Her final resting spot will be at Oak Grove Cemetery in Detroit Lakes. The family will have a small memorial in Detroit Lakes, in her honor, which will be announced.
