Amy was born in Princeton, Missouri, on April 19, 1954, to her parents Kenneth Johnson and Barbara Padilla. Amy grew up in Santa Cruz, California, with her family and many friends. She met her first husband, Ronald Steele, and they married and moved to the Priest River, Idaho, area to raise their five children.

Amy was an active member of the community where she volunteered in Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and many other community activities. She loved enhancing the lives of children which inspired her to become a preschool teacher for almost 20 years. She was full of love and touched the lives of so many.

In 1999, Amy married the love of her life, and current husband, Elmer “Moe” Ranni and they enjoyed gardening and spending as much time as possible with her children, grandchildren and great grandchild. Amy spent her retirement (2016) knitting and crafting for her family and friends. Amy was a devoted wife, mother, sister and friend to everyone.

Amy is survived by her loving husband, Moe, of 20 years; and her five children, Shane Steele of Bothell, Washington, Seth Steele of Rathdrum, Idaho, Jeb Steele of Deer Park, Washington, Eben Steele of Newport, Washington, and Amanda Steele of Spokane Valley, Wash-ington, who together gave Amy 13 grandchildren and two great- grandchild to share her overabundance of love with. She is also survived by her siblings; Edward Johnson of California, Barry Johnson of Washington, Rene Sommer of Washington, Vicki Allen of Washington, Leslie Chrisman of Washington, and William “Billy” Chrisman of Washington.

She is preceded in death by her mother, Barbara Chrisman; her stepfather, Leslie Chrisman Sr.; her grandmother, Maxine Collier; and her stepmother, Dorothy Johnson.

The family invites everyone to join them, along with Pastor Dave Miller, in a service of remembrance at House of The Lord (located at 754 Silver Birch Lane, Oldtown, Idaho 83822), on Saturday, January 19, at 11 a.m. A potluck gathering will be held immediately following the service.
