Amy Rebecca Tynes Tobin

October 3, 1975 — October 23, 2019

Amy Rebecca Tynes Tobin, 44 years old, passed away peacefully on October 23, 2019, in the comfort of her childhood home with her family by her side.  Appropriately this was the anniversary of her Baptism.  Amy graduated from Natchitoches Central and LSUA with double majors in history and psychology.  During school, she worked at Pinecrest Development Center in the equine therapy program.  Having worked the carriages in Natchitoches for many years, she conned her mom into buying the business and Natchitoches Carriage Company was born.  This was her pride and joy and she worked every minute that she could up until her health failed and the harnesses were too heavy to lift.  Amy was preceded in death by an infant son, Nathan Chance Hastings; her maternal grandparents, Ervin and Pat Schelette; her paternal grandparents, C.V. and Dorothy Tynes; and her beloved uncle, Jimmy Schelette.  She is survived by her husband, Tommy Tobin; her children, Austin Johnson, Jeremy Johnson, and Amara Hastings; her precious granddaughter, Scarlett; her mother and step-father, Gail and Joe Culpepper; her father and step-mother, Donald and Sandra Tynes; her father and mother-in-law, Tom and Sharon Tobin; and grandmother-in-law, Ginny Tobin.  Last but not least, her beloved Sampson, the carriage horse who had her whole heart.  Amy had always wanted to start a program called the “Last Mile”, where a horse-drawn carriage would take the deceased the last mile to the cemetery.  Sampson will have the honor Sunday. The family will receive friends from 5 pm until 9 pm on Saturday, October 26, 2019, at Blanchard-St. Denis Funeral Home.  Recitation of the Holy Rosary will be at 7 pm in the funeral home chapel.  A mass will be held at 2 pm on Sunday, October 27, 2019, at St. Anne’s Catholic Church on Old River with Rev. Charlie Ray serving as celebrant.  Pallbearers will be Shane LaCaze, Kenny Emrick, Mike LaCaze, David Dobson, Scott Foshee, and Ralph Maggio.  Honorary pallbearer will be her life-long friend, Jeff Rachal.
