Amanda Bianski Espy, 34, a resident of Fort Wayne and formerly of Columbia City, passed away at 9:53 p. m. on Friday, January 30, 2015 at Parkview Regional Medical Center.
Amanda was born in Auburn on February 6, 1980, a daughter of Bryan L. and Lori (Gardenour) Bianski. She spent most of her formative years in Columbia City and graduated from Columbia City High School in 1998.
On September 10, 2005 she was married in Fort Wayne to John E. Espy, and lived all of her adult life there.
Employed in the offices of A. J. Logistics in Fort Wayne, she had worked there for 15 years. She will long be remembered as a person with a big heart, who put others ahead of herself.

The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 a. m. on Wednesday, February 4, 2015, at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church at Ege with Father Polycarp Fernando, the celebrant.
The family will receive friends at Sheets & Childs Funeral Home in Churubusco on Tuesday from 2 to 8 p. m., or from 10 to 10:30 a. m. Wednesday. The Holy Rosary will be recited at 8 p. m. Tuesday at the funeral home.
