Amelia's Journey Home

Many of you have heard of the loss of Kurt and Ashley's daughter Amelia Marie.   They hope that people who have been affected by Amelia's life resolve to become better, nicer, and kinder than before.   As a result of this incident, many of us have determined to be influential in having better families and communities, and doing what we can to share this feeling with those around us.


We recognize that there are still many people who would like to be able to contribute in other ways.  Kurt and Ashley are unaware, but we have set up an account in memory of Amelia, in order to alleviate the financial burdens resulting from this unexpected tragedy and to help them down the road. 

Washington, Utah

Amelia Marie Hansen, age 2, passed away on Sunday, March 17, 2013. 

Amelia was born in St George to Kurt and Ashley Hansen. She is a happy girl that loved everyone she came into contact with, as well as caused those people to fall in love with her. Amelia was always her own boss and enjoyed independence. Although Amelia was never a big hugger, she enjoyed giving head bonks and high fives. She was never very concerned with purses and dolls. Her focus was directed toward things like bears, deer, elk and backpacks. Amelia loved to be outdoors in the dirt and mud. One of Amelia's favorite subjects is wildlife and she loved to see them however she could whether it was by pictures, video, shopping cart tours of the local sporting goods store, or being out in the wilderness with her family. She has always shown deep love for her little brother Jet and infant sister Cora. Amelia has been and will continue to be an inspiration to us to be better individuals than we were the day before. Amelia has a captivating spirit that will be with us forever.
