Amy Kearney Obituary, Cause Of Death – The passing of Amy Fuller Kearney occurred not long ago. She was a powerhouse grinder for the America3 ’95 team, competed in the Olympics three times, and served as the head coach of the women’s rowing team at UCLA for the previous 20 years. She also competed in the Olympics. It is with the deepest regret that I must relay this information to you at this time.
But they were wrong. Amy Fuller helped change their minds. On the other hand, she presented evidence that demonstrated how wrong we had been in our assumptions. Even though she had already competed in one Olympic competition and still had two more to go after the A3 competition, she still managed to show us what genuine dedication to power and excellence looks like in person. She did this despite the fact that she had already competed in one Olympic competition. And NEVER without a GIGANTIC grin plastered all over her face from ear to ear.
Our hearts break not only for her family and friends, but also for her teammates and coworkers, and they break for all of us as well. In 1995, when Amy Fuller arrived at our facility for the first time, all of the female sailors believed that we were powerful, tough, and that we had what it took to win.
