Family Remembers Glasgow Expectant Mother Who Died In Crash

By Jake Boswell | 

GLASGOW, Ky. (WBKO) -- "The pain is just unreal to me. It's like a bottomless pit."

The pain that Sheri Eubank is describing is the sudden loss of her daughter. The Barren County Sheriff's Office said 23-year-old Amy Eubank's car collided with another around 5:30 Wednesday evening.
Her mother was expecting her home and knew something was wrong when she wasn't answering her phone.

"Her brother in law called and said there was a bad accident on 68/80 and I knew in my heart."

Amy was pronounced dead at the scene. She was the mother of a 2-year-old, and was 8 months pregnant at the time of the accident. Her unborn son also died in the crash.

"To think that I've lost my child, I don't even think I've let my heart go to the thought that I've lost a grandson too. I know how much I love Braiden, her son. I can't imagine reading some of the things she's already wrote preparing for his birth. How wonderful and special that baby would've been! I don't know if I can let my heart and mind go there yet," said Sheri Eubank through tears.

Though much grieving lies ahead, Amy's family is remembering all the good things about the girl who loved bright colorful decorations and spending time with children. Her mother said Amy loved her son and every time he discovered something new, it was like Amy was rediscovering things all over again.

"She would do anything or give her last dollar to give things to anybody else," added Sheri Eubank.

Police said the exact cause of the accident is still undetermined and under investigation.

Amy was a student at WKU and a 2009 graduate of Barren County High School. She leaves behind her son Braiden and her fiance Joseph Puccio. Puccio was the father of Eubank's expectant child. The couple had already named their son Connor Joseph Wayne Puccio. She also leaves behind a twin sister, Jessica.

Visitation will begin Friday at 3:00 P.M. at Hatcher & Saddler Funeral Home. Funeral services will be held at 2:00 P.M. Saturday.
