Obituary for Amy Dawn Bringhurst

Amy Dawn Bringhurst, age 43, of Derby, passed away Thursday morning, January 16, 2020, at home in Derby, KS. She was born March 8, 1976 in Wichita, KS, the daughter of Steven C. and Linda L. (Gowin) Seehorn.

She was a wonderful wife, mom, sister, daughter. She loved her Lord, her family, her friends, and everyone she met. She was kind, compassionate, loving, giving, creative, fun-loving, had a heart of service, and a joy-filled smile. Again, she loved her family deeply. In Amy’s own words, “When I’m not at work you can find me volunteering at our elementary school or church, baking, reading, traveling to do missions work in East Africa, or doing laundry. I do lots of laundry.”

She began her schooling in Wichita. Her family moved to Topeka, KS, where she began 3rd grade in the Seaman School district. She graduated from Seaman High School in 1994. She was active in the theater and music arts and was a member of National Honor Society. She attended Manhattan Christian College and K-State University earning a B.S. in Bible/Educational Ministry with minors in Youth and Family in 1999.

Amy married Greg Bringhurst on September 9, 2000. They have five children: Katelyn (16), Abigail (15), Zachary (13), Madelyn (10), and Andrew (4). Greg and Amy sponsored Resty from Uganda who became like a daughter to them. Amy was very involved with Swaney Elementary School, Derby, and volunteered as President of PTS for many years.

She worked 12 years as a Children’s Minister at First Christian Church, Derby, and at Glenn Park Christian Church, Wichita. She initiated Upward Basketball at First Christian Church, Derby, which continues 20 years later at South Rock Christian Church. Afterwards, Amy was a stay-at-home mom for six years before becoming a Parent Educator with Parents As Teachers with the Derby School District.

Amy began her church experience as child with the Riverlawn Christian Church. In Topeka she attended and became a member of Rolling Hills Christian Church. Most recently Amy was active in the South Rock Christian Church, Derby. Amy had a deep devotion for mission work. While a student at Manhattan Christian College she was on camp teams and took her first mission trip to build houses in Mexico. She continued her passion for missions taking eight trips over the past 11 years with He Intends Victory (HIV) taking the gospel message and medical assistance to villages in East Africa. She felt honored and was very much looking forward to leading a trip to Kenya in June of 2020.

Amy is survived by husband Greg Bringhurst; and children Katelyn, Abigail, Zachery, Madelyn, and Andrew; parents Steven and Linda Seehorn (Topeka); sisters April (Kurtis) Wells (Topeka), Anna Seehorn (Topeka); uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews, and many, many friends.

Amy was one of the best people I met during our time in Derby. We worked together many years through Swaney Elementary PTA. I adored her incredible sense of humor and how much we laughed. She made all of our work fun. She was an incredible friend during highs and lows. I cherish how true and non-judgmental she was, accepting everyone. She impacted everyone she met, including me. Sending so much love to her children and entire family.

May God wrap his arms around the family, and friends who loved Amy so much, She was an amazing woman. She took the time to reach out to me last February when my Son died, that meant a lot to me. Beautiful woman with a beautiful smile and who lit up a room. Big hugs to the family. Prayers up. Steve& Julie Applewhite

My heart goes out to Amy's family. I enjoyed getting to know Amy at Glenn Park Christian Church. All the kids really loved her and I can still remember her speaking to the whole congregation. I can picture her standing on the stage. This is utter shock and I know that saying goodbye is so difficult. May our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ bring comfort to Amy's family. I will be praying for all of you. Sending my heartfelt condolences. God Bless.

My heart goes out to all of you! I met Amy when my oldest son and I attended Glenn Park Christian Church. She always displayed a passion for Christ and sought to ensure each child understood the importance of Christ and their lives. She was so compassionate and so very fun. The kids drew to her like magnets! I pray God bring you peace, comfort and understanding. The love of a mother is without end, be still and know! God bless you......Saundra Haas/Lukas Byrd!
