It is with profound sadness that our family announces the passing of Amy G. Koehler, 61, Clayton on Sunday, October 8, 2023.

Amy was born in Batavia on August 14, 1962, daughter of Paul A. Thiebeau, Jr. and Barbara J. MacKearnin Thiebeau. She was a graduate of Iroquois Central School, Elma, NY and received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and Communication from Mt. Union College, Alliance, OH. A marriage to James Koehler ended in divorce.

She attended Concordia Lutheran Church and was a supporter of the Antique Boat Museum and the Antique Classic Boat Society. In her younger years Amy enjoyed horseback riding. She also enjoyed boating. All will remember her love of music, her pets, and all the tourquoise in the world.

Koehler, Cheektowaga, NY; grandson Santiago Rodriguez-Koehler Moyock, NC; mother Barbara J. "Mike" Thiebeau, Clayton, NY; two siblings, Lori Catanzarita, New Hartford, NY and Paul A. "Trey" Thiebeau III and companion Barbara Bologna, Old Forge, NY; nephew Joseph Catanzarita, Hartford, CT; and her aunts, uncles, and  cousins who will hold her memory in their hearts. Her father died October 28, 2013. 

A private funeral service will be held at Concordia Lutheran Church at her family's convenience.

I send my thoughts and prayers to Amy's family at this difficult time.I worked with Amy for seven years in the jewelry department at Kohls.We had many conversations about our families.Amy loved her family .Amy was caring and had a kind heart. I had many rough days when my mom suddenly passed. Amy helped me through many work days with her kind words and side hugs.I was grateful and thankful to know Amy.She was my angel and now God has taken Amy under his wing.I know in my heart that if Amy meets my mom she will tell her how much I miss her,and give a side hug.I never felt more happiness in Amy then when she was to be a grandmother. Amy will a fun angel that will be looking after her family and especially her grandson.I will miss my angel,but I know she will take care of others with her kind words and side hugs.

I was so sad to hear the news about Amy. She had just accepted a Facebook friend request from me recently. I wish I'd known sooner she lived in Clayton cuz I do as well. I would have loved to have gotten together with her. I have many fond memories of her and your family,and working on the floats in your barn for Iroquois Central homecomings and such. Your family will be in my prayers

Dear Mike, Lori and Trey,
We heard but could not believe! Now we must, and pray for you and the whole family. She was such a lively and loving girl that all who knew her will miss terribly.
