“Inspiring young population through Education”

Amy Melinda Ogmundson passed on


At age of 26 on February 6, 2013 at her home in Ferndale.

Amy Melinda Ogmundson

She was born on May 6, 1986 in Bellingham, attended Ferndale schools, playing on the athletic fields, making music with the band, singing on stage, and graduating from Ferndale High School in 2004. Later that same year Amy began a valiant battle with Ewing’s Sarcoma that she beat back twice before succumbing.

Amy was a curious and caring youngster who loved all God’s creatures. She befriended and mothered mammals and reptiles of all types. As she grew older Amy found a passion for helping children. She nurtured kids of all ages as if they were her very own with a fun and creative spirit that drew them to her.

Amy’s Wild Kingdom needs your support of story books and donation to purchase story books in Uganda. When you donate to Amy’s Wild Kingdom, you are contributing to Amy’s legacy and love for animals. Join us in keeping Amy’s memory alive.

Amy was gifted with a beautiful voice that she shared with many people before and during her illness. She sang her own compositions in a benefit concert at Benaroya Hall for Children’s Hospital just one month after completing chemotherapy and radiation treatments. She performed at benefits in Key Arena as well as Safeco Field, where she sang the United States of America National Anthem for a Seattle Mariners game. Amy gained certification in fitness training and worked with and encouraged dozens of people to live a healthier life. Amy will be missed for all these things and for her infectious smile and gentle, compassionate spirit. Her legacy for music and love for children and animals will live on forever.

Lutino Adunu Community Library was founded in memory of Amy to provide children’s literatures to children and community in Nwoya district with a motive to encourage the love for good care of all God’s creatures. Through the years, we have renovated a donated building to a community library, raised over 3,000 children’s books, over 300 adults for the library and donated scholastic materials to 2 schools in Nwoya district.
