She passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of October 16, 2021, at Sunset Home Assisted Living after a very brief illness. Viewing will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, October 20 at Bonners Ferry Funeral Home, 6485 Harrison Street.

On November 12, 1960, Ann and Roland "Tom" Amoth were joined in marriage in Coeur d’ Alene. They enjoyed 40 years together and their home was blessed with six children.
In their early marriage while living in the Livingston, California, area, Mom became acquainted with the church Dad attended as a boy. She realized her lost condition and upon confession of her faith she was baptized into the Church of God in Christ, Mennonite, on March 17, 1963, by Kenneth Koehn.
She remained faithful to her vows and in her final hours assured her children she was ready to meet God.
While making their home at Livingston, Scott City, Kansas, and Bonners Ferry, she had the opportunity to make lifelong friends whom she cherished.
Dad passed away in March of 2001, leaving Mom very lonely.
Mom was very talented with her hands. She spent many hours quilting, crocheting, knitting and embroidering beautiful gifts for others. Her sense of humor was greatly enjoyed by family and friends, leaving us many memories of smiles and laughter.
As her health began to fail, she moved into the Sunset Home Assisted Living for the last five years of her life. Mom so appreciated her care and formed friendships with all her caregivers.
The family sincerely appreciates and thanks all those involved in making it a pleasant home for Mom.
Those left to share memories are her children, Lori and Galen Williams, Lakin, Kansas; Sherri Mastre, Lisa and Cecil Wedel, Craig and Darla Amoth, Jeremy and Doreen Amoth, and Thayne Amoth, all of Bonners Ferry, 14 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren, sisters-in-law Joannie Butler, Spokane, and Frances Koehn, Glenn, California, brothers-in-law Don Amoth, Bonners Ferry, Wayne Amoth, Buhl, Idaho, and Leslie and Doris Amoth, Glenn, California.
Those preceding her in death are her parents, her husband, and one brother, one son-in-law and one grandson; also her parents-in-law, three brothers-in-law, and five sisters-in-law.
