On December 22, 1964 Amy would lose her first husband to lung cancer after 18 years of marriage. Later Amy married her second husband Arthur (Junior) Dennison Jr. and gave birth to a set of twin daughters Terry (Ray) Pike and Tammy McLaughlin. Junior predeceased Amy in 1986. Amy is survived by all of her children, many grandchildren, many great grandchildren and many friends. Amy has one remaining brother Leslie (Jane) Wilcox as she was predeceased by four brothers Clarence, Carlton, Lewis, Richard and three sisters Mable, Mary and Helen.
