Amy Elizabeth Williams
Amy Williams, loving mother, sister and daughter, and friend to all died on Saturday, June 17, 2017. She was 41 and died too soon. In her time here, Amy loved more deeply and brightened more lives than most of us could do in twice the time. Most people will remember the way Amy always lit up a room when she walked in with her smile and how fiercely she loved her children. She exhibited pure love for all and everyone who knew her was touched by this grace. She was a radiant and unforgettable personality who loved to laugh, who loved people with ever open arms, who met struggle with an uncommon drive and strength. Amy left this world a better place.
Amy was born in Cullman, Alabama on July 5, 1975. She was the daughter of Phil and Patti Freeman. She was preceded in death by grandparents Jack and Helen Vogel and Chester Freeman. She is survived by her wonderful children Clay and Maggie Williams, her parents, her sister Meredith (Jeff) Middlebrooks, niece and nephew Eliza and Thomas, her grandmother Hilda Freeman, aunt and uncle Bill and Carolyn Peinhardt, cousins Clint Peinhardt, Lanie Williamson, and Rachel Dawsey.
Amy graduated from Birmingham-Southern College and received her Masters of Science degree in nursing from Vanderbilt University. She was employed for over 15 years with Tennessee Women's Care as a women's health nurse practitioner with Dr. Anne Blake. She also worked for a brief period as a nurse practitioner with the Tennessee Prison for Women and served as a nurse on a mission trip in 2013 with the Alabama Honduran Medical Network (AHMEN).
A celebration of her life will be held in Nashville on Friday, June 23 at 11 a.m. at Eastwood Christian Church at 1601 Eastland Avenue. A reception will follow. The church venue is very small. Please consider attending the service in Cullman (see below) if you are a friend of the family, but not connected directly to Amy.
A Memorial Service with scattering of ashes will be held Friday, June 30 at 11 a.m. at Grace Episcopal Church in Cullman, Alabama.
The family requests no flowers (allergies) and would like for memorial donations to go to Camp McDowell at www.campmcdowell.com, Walden's Puddle Animal Rehabilitation Center at www.waldenspuddle.org, or Thistle Farms at www.thistlefarms.org.
