Amy Denise Poynter, age 48, of Chillicothe, passed away on Saturday, December 28, 2019 at her home.

Amy was born on June 21, 1971 in Peoria, IL to Robert "Bob" Poynter and Beverly (Yocum) Poynter. Possessing a passionate spirit, she always shared her unconditional love to anyone who crossed her path.
