Family and Friends will gather for an Amy Schulkins memorial on Sunday afternoon. Friend Phoenix Violet also invited anyone unable to attend to light a candle for Amy at 7 pm Sunday.
Amy Schulkins disappeared on 30 December. Earlier, she and her wife visited her parents for dinner. Last Friday, police found her submerged car near the Spinnaker Sound Boat Ramp, Sandstone Point. Family and friends are waiting on the results of a post mortem on human remains found in the vehicle.

Phoenix noted on Facebook that those attending the Amy Schulkins memorial should follow Queensland COVID protocols in the public space.
“For anyone who wishes to join us to celebrate Ames, we will be at Sandstone Point on Sunday at 4 pm. We hope this will provide Amy’s loving Army with an opportunity to come by and pay their respects. ❤
“We understand that not everyone who wants to attend will be able to for whatever reason so we invite you to light a candle for Amy wherever you are at 7 pm on Sunday night.
“It is important to note that while this is a public area, and not a formal service; Covid safety/restrictions (social distancing and check-ins) should be followed.”
Amy’s friend Annaliese Carter also wrote a touching online tribute.
“The overalls will be hung up. The drone retired. The sonar gear put to rest and all of my sticks and bricks and clever ‘Find Amy’ tools put aside. As my heart breaks that we couldn’t find you sooner. My heart feels some closure knowing.”
Amy’s wife Rebecca posted a heartbreaking tribute to her ‘soulmate’ earlier this week.
