Amy attended and graduated from Natchitoches Central High School and then later from NSU.  She worked many years as the secretary to the Chief of Police at the Natchitoches Police Department.  She truly loved and respected all of her co-workers at the department.  Deeply rooted in faith, she enjoyed attending and was a lifetime member of Christ the King Lutheran Church.  She enjoyed reading, cooking, and feeding her hummingbirds.  Amy was a positive person and went out of her way to encourage and   help others.  She had such a generous spirit and loved Jesus aove all. She loved her family, especially her grandchildren, who brought her great joy.   She will be dearly missed but always remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and sister.
