Amy grew up living with her grandparents, Edge and Louise Senn and when her grandparent’s health declined, Amy was dedicated to taking care of them. She attended Darton State College and was a pre-pharmacy major. Her favorite thing in life was spending time with her granddaughters, Lyla, Anna, and Ember and her second favorite thing in life was rambling around in the woods on the family land at Sims Bridge. The family wishes to share that Amy did have a long-time battle with addiction, but recently, Amy had been an in-patient at The Ark in Dothan, Alabama. Her time there had been a wonderful healing experience and even more greatly while there she renewed her relationship with Jesus Christ. Amy was determined to overcome her addiction, and some of her happiest times, was when she was serving others who too knew the battle. While at The Ark, she was active in the Dothan Street Ministry which served many homeless persons in the Houston County area. She delivered meals with The Harbor Ministry and worked in The Ark’s thrift store. After returning home, February 15th was a dark day for her, and she lost the battle of that day. But the family is confident that she had won her greatest victory when she rededicated her life to Jesus while at The Ark. The family believes that Amy would want her life to remembered by encouraging anyone to seek help for addiction and never give up and to be sure of one’s salvation.
