Amy Elizabeth Woods (Meme) ~ September 2, 1923- March 6, 2017 ~ Beloved, wife, mother, grandmother & soon to be great grandmother, passed away peacefully in her sleep on March 6, 2017. She was forever faithful & true to the love of her life, Lynn Woods, who passed away only a few short months ago. Even though our hearts are once again broken, we know that she was greeted at the pearly gates of Heaven with PawPaw Woods standing there smiling, awaiting patiently with open arms & a happy heart. They are now together once again ~ always and forever.

She was deeply devoted to her one & only child & daughter, Cindy Lynn & to her two beloved grandsons, Jason & Chastain. Her family & her grandsons were her life-her second career upon a happy retirement. She was truly a "Steel Magnolia" - southern, sweet & sassy & filled with such an amazing grace. She had the most beautiful smile & gorgeous blue eyes that could take your breath away.

Her passions included fishing & crabbing (her stuffed crabs & etouffee- you would've thought you had dies & gone to heaven) & she loved planning/cooking "big" family dinners fir her "little" family. Her grandsons would fight each other over her infamous pimento cheese, not to mention her southern poppy seed cake. She was devote about reading the Bible & could also read a book in only one night. She also had a green thumb in gardening, winning garden of the month many times throughout the years. She was an excellent seamstress, loved watching the Hallmark Channel, decorating for the holidays & making her annual Christmas gingerbread houses for her grandsons. She also loved listening (& cranking up the volume) to Patsy Cline & Ella Fitzgerald.

She took such joy in the simple things of everyday life. As a grandmother, she cherished & treasured the little homemade gifts from her grandsons throughout the years. She was always helping oved ones & not once did she ever say no to helping her family.
She is survived by countless nieces & nephews who remember her with such fond memories as well as dear loved ones, family & friends.

She was truly an angel that we were blessed to have been able to call our very own.

May she rest in peace and everlasting love.

~We will miss our beloved Amy Elizabeth~ wife, mother & our sweet little "MeMe" ~
