In Loving memory of Amy Wilson, born on November 22, 1966, in Bogalusa, Louisiana. Amy was the eldest "Baby," as she was affectionately called by her parents Myrtis and JoAnn Wilson. She accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior at a young age and remained a lifelong New Jerusalem Baptist Church member. There, she served as the president of the youth choir and as an usher. Amy was also passionate about serving others, and her work with the "Care and Share" committee always held a special place in her heart.
Amy graduated from Franklinton High School, where she excelled in academics, especially English. Those years brought her much joy as she was a school choir member and the Flag team member. After High School, Amy attended Sullivan Technical School in Bogalusa, LA, where she studied Business Administration. For many years, she worked as a store manager. In recent years, Amy found her calling working with older adults and people with special needs as a Direct Service Worker at Rest Care and FACC.
Amy 'Terrell", the name she gave herself, had a deep affection for her community, family, patients, and cows. She personally named each of her cows and tended to them every day. Despite being a little bit country, she always enjoyed dressing up in fashionable clothes, wearing makeup, and accessorizing with jewelry.
