Amy Eula Stidham

Amy Eula Stidham of Orange Park, Florida passed away on Saturday, September 10, 2016 surrounded by her loving husband, children, and grandchildren. She was born on Wednesday November 16, 1932 to the late Claude and Hazel Wilder in Jonesville, Virginia. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother who focused her life on her family and loved ones.

She loved to help as evident by her many years of teaching the three and four year old Sunday school classes and Vacation Bible School at Asbury United Methodist Church. When she was not volunteering her time in church she volunteered for the American Cancer Society, Leukemia Society, and Mothers March of Dimes. Amy was always thinking of others and believed in helping anyone she could.

Her vibrant friendly smile could brighten anyone’s day. She was able to strike conversation with just about anybody just by smiling and saying a friendly hello. If that didn’t work she would always have a stick of gum or piece of candy in her purse to offer them, and that surely put a smile on their face. She especially enjoyed cooking and celebrating for the holidays and Sunday dinners. There was nothing Amy would not do for her family and friends. Amy was the oldest of eleven children and was accustomed to making a little go along way and taking care of the family. She married her childhood sweetheart, Dorris N Stidham born May 5, 1930 in Pennington Gap, Virginia, on May 6, 1953 and has been happily married to him for sixty three years. Amy and Dorris gave birth to four children and eight grandchildren, including seven great grandchildren. Amy always felt she was too young to have grandchildren, so instead of being called grandmother she was affectionately known as “Mimi”

She is survived by her loving husband Dorris Neal Stidham, three sons; Alvin D. Stidham of Tampa, Florida, Gary N. Stidham of Orange Park, Florida, Sidney H. Stidham of Orange Park, Florida, and one daughter, Karen S. Hibbits of Orange Park, Florida. Her surviving siblings include; One brother Claude Wilder Sr. of Tennessee, Robin Hurst of Tennessee, and Wanda Stidham of Tennessee.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, September 15, 2016 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm in the Broadus-Raines Chapel. Funeral services will be held Friday September 16, 2016 at 9:30am at Asbury United Methodist Church located at 116 College Drive, Orange Park, Florida. Graveside service will be held at the Jacksonville National Cemetery located at 4083 Lannie Rd, Jacksonville Florida on Friday September 16, 2016 at 12:30 pm using lane 1 for vehicles.

Following the graveside service the family invites you to return to Asbury United Methodist Church for reception in Farr Hall. Please sign the family’s online guestbook at www.broadusraines.com
