Amy was born in Ocala, Florida on August 26, 1966, to Kenneth and Martha (Morris) Kirkland. She attended Yankeetown school, graduated from Crystal River High School and went on to study at Central Florida Community College. Amy married Timothy Summers on July 22, 2006. They were best friends and enjoyed many wonderful adventures together. She especially enjoyed the beach, traveling the roads on their Spider motorcycle through New England, and the north Georgia mountains. Amy also enjoyed the many times they spent together fishing at Saint George Island and the times together hunting, fishing, and just hanging out with friends and grandson Easton at their camp in the Hammock. She dearly loved the outdoors. They had fifteen wonderful and faithful years together. Amy worked at Inglis Town Hall as a clerk and later at Central Florida Electric Cooperative. She was also the managing associate at Inglis realty following the death of her stepfather, Archie Eiland.
