Amy P. Fredericks, 46, of Colts Neck passed away suddenly at home July 4. Amy was born in Phoenix, Arizona and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. She attended Principia College in Elsah, Illinois before moving to New Jersey in the early in 1990s. Amy graduated from Monmouth University, West Long Branch.
With a passion for music, she was a classically trained pianist and vocalist.

That passion also lead her to donate her time and expertise as the music director for both the Cabaret For Life, Asbury Park and The Ashley Lauren Foundation, Spring Lake, and as a member of The Arcadian Chorale, Matawan. Volunteerism was also near to her heart with her dedication to the cats of Rescue Ridge.
