Amy Anna LeBard, 87, of Baltimore Street, Mount Holly Springs, Pa., passed away Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2012, at her home.

Mrs. LeBard was born Jan. 18, 1925, in Enhaut, Pa., and was the daughter of the late John and Katherine (Koch) Mabius.

Amy Anna LeBard was many things to many people: Loving sister, beloved wife, treasured mother, most precious grandmother, delighted great-grandmother, and loyal friend.

She didn't preach her faith, she lived it, and through her, Divine love was magnified. She made all who knew her better. Her talent for loving without judging increased her sphere of influence. Her family grew as she drew others to her. Across cultures and continents, be it Japan, England, Australia or throughout the United States, she embraced new experiences and charmed all who met her. She used her powers for good. Her adventurous spirit, ready laugh, and kindness radiated out. She let her light shine, because she was lit from within with joy. Her legacy is carried every day in the hearts of her family and friends.

She was the widow of Waverly E. LeBard (2008) and is survived by a son, Dr. Waverly J. LeBard and wife, Cherie, of Waynesboro, Pa.; two daughters, Amy L. Swett and husband, James, of Mechanicsburg, Pa., and Kitti Jo Summerscales and husband, Dr. Rodney D.
