A memorial service for Amy Harding-Permann was held on Friday at Croxford Funeral Home.
The service was livestreamed for all to attend virtually at the Croxford Funeral Home website.
Harding, 34 years old, was reported missing in January 2020. Her disappearance triggered a major search effort by Sheriff's deputies, firefighters, search and rescue personnel, and hundreds of volunteers. Her body was found in the Missouri River on April 8th. The investigation and autopsy determined that the cause and manner of her death was accidental drowning.
Harding is survived by two sons, Ashton and Brody, and a legacy of love for others that was evident in her work and relationships with others.
According to her obituary, Amy had a “heart of gold”, the ability to light up a room, and “an uncanny way of reaching people in a deep and positive way.”
Donations in her name can be made to the Children's Museum of Montana.
