Amy graduated from Whiteoak High School Class of 1955 and was a member of Good News Gathering. Amy had a kind, loving servants’ heart that did not know a stranger. She had a way of doing for others the little things that mattered and never expected more than a smile or a hug in return. She loved attending her children's, grandchildren and great grandchildren's activities and let all that would listen know how proud she was of them. She told all their friends to call her “mamaw” and made them feel like one of her own. Amy was a devoted wife to her husband, Bob. It didn’t matter if she was fixing him food, telling him what to do, chasing pigs around the apple orchard or turning those apples into homemade applesauce. Her devotion to Bob was unwavering, she confirmed this devotion by her passing on his birthday, she held on just long enough to be the best birthday present. To Amy family meant everything, she was the happiest when surrounded by hers.
