Amy Jo Tkach

Of St. Augustine, FL formerly of Braddock Hills, PA, age 45, passed peacefully with family by her side while vacationing in San Diego on October 1, 2021 after an unexpected illness. 

Loving daughter of Deborah and Richard Tkach, Jr.  Favorite sister of Richard Tkach III (Amber) and the late Michele Tkach. 

Cherished cousin, but more like a sister to Garrett Zajdel, Melissa Tkach, Leah Tkach, Rebecca Zajdel, Roni Lynn Tkach, Megan Zajdel, and Bethany (Mark) Ducruet.  

Adored niece of Joseph and Marion Zajdel, Donald and Mary Kay Zajdel, and Ronald and MaryAnn Tkach.

Kainan Tkach, her nephew and Novalee Tkach, her niece and Goddaughter, held her whole heart and she loved nothing more than being able to watch them grow. They will undoubtedly carry her spirit on in so many ways.

Amy is preceded in death by her grandparents, Dolorus and Joseph Zajdel and Mildred and Richard Tkach Sr.

Isla and Rooney, Amy’s furbabies will undoubtedly miss their doting and loving mother. 

Through her selfless gift of organ donation, Amy is going to live on through a multitude of people. 

Amy was loved by so many friends from all over the country and was a social butterfly who lived her life to the fullest.  She was a friend to many and lighted the lives of every person she met.
