Amanda Bruhy

July 30, 1979 — May 11, 2023

Sister Bay, Wisconsin

Amanda Allison Brown Bruhy died as a result of an unexpected health complication at her home in Sister Bay, Wisconsin on May 11, 2023. Amanda is survived by her son Emmet D. Johnson. She is further survived by her parents, Mark E. Bruhy (Katie Egan-Bruhy), and Patricia B. Richards (John D. Richards). Amanda was one of five children and she will be deeply missed by her sisters Simone C. B. Bruhy, Willa C. Richards ( J. M. Holmes), Emma D. Richards, and her brother Nicholas W. Richards as well as her nephews Langston E. Bruhy Hale and Ocean I. Holmes. Amanda is preceded in death by her son Aidan L. Johnson. Amanda is also survived by loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and dear friends.


Amanda was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on July 30 1979. She spent her childhood in Rhinelander, Wisconsin which instilled in her a love of the Northwoods. After graduating from Rhinelander High School, Amanda attended Mount Mary College for two years before moving to her beloved Door County where she developed a network of close friends.


Amanda was quiet, creative and possessed of a wry sense of humor. Her artistic talent and love of art influenced all aspects of her life. She was a devoted mother and she and Emmet loved the trails and beaches of Door County.  Amanda’s spiritual and everlasting presence resides in those trails, beaches, and forests. For much of her childhood, Amanda camped with her siblings in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, accompanied her parents on archaeological projects, and otherwise found peace in nature. When she wasn’t enjoying the out of doors she could be found demonstrating her impressive bowling skills. Amanda loved music and on occasion could  be persuaded to dance with friends.


Amanda will be cremated at Simply Cremation in Green Bay, Wisconsin. A memorial service will be held at the AC Tap, 9322 WI-57, Baileys Harbor, WI 54202 on May 20 at 11:11 AM. Anyone with memories, stories, or keepsakes is invited to attend and share. In light of the extraordinary challenges Amanda’s son Emmet faces as he transitions through the difficulty of life without his beloved mother, a GoFundMe page has been created in his name.
