AMY ADELITA JOSEPH
July 23, 1936 September 20, 1987


Amy Adelita Joseph was born on July 23, 1936 to Chrystalia S. Shinnery
on the island of St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. She attended Charlotte
Amalie High School and graduated with the class of 1955.
She later married Leonard "Slimo" Joseph and their marriage was blessed
with six children.
Amy worked mostly in the private sector, working for the last twenty-
one years at the Windward Passage Hotel.
Warm, sweet and "the greatest mom" are some of the characteristics
that depict Amy. She departed this life knowing her best was put forward.
We love and miss her physically, but spiritually she'll always be here with
us.
Amy, we know you are resting in peace.

TO OUR BELOVED COUSIN


Amy, it is very sad to see you lying there, so very still and unresponsive.
It hurts to know that we will no longer be able to converse together, comfort
each other in times of need, or even give an encouraging word when needed.
You have been an inspiration to us. Some say that you have to live a full
life for someone to appreciate you, but for the years that you've given us,
there will be a lifetime of memories in our hearts.
You were a special cousin and friend. Even though you will not be here
in body, you'll always be with us in mind.

"The Lord is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear? "
The Lord is the strength of my life
Of whom shall I be afraid?
Psalm 27

Amy, may you rest in peace.
Your Loving Cousins,
Yvonne and Family


TO OUR SISTER AND AUNT

Oh, how we often wait too long to say what we feel in our hearts. "I love
you; You're so comforting and easy to talk to; Your smile makes me feel
so good inside; Thanks for caring and taking time out for me." All these
things were meant to be said when you were here with us, but we know that
you knew how we felt. Today you are with the Lord, and how wonderful
it is to know that we can see you again by accepting Him in our hearts!
Therefore, today we miss your presence but rejoice in your victory in
Jesus!

Farewell, but not good-bye,
With love,
Your brother Edwardo (Boy Blue)
and family .











A TRIBUTE TO A FRIEND


Amy, we were friends for rolling years. We enjoyed each other's company
in many ways. Your sorrows were my sorrows;your joys my joys.
As friends we were no different. There were times when we disagreed,
but like true friends, we put that behind us and went forward.
Amy, I truly believed our friendship was made in heaven because only
death could have separated it, and only death did.
Goodnight, Amy. Your presence will be missed, but your memories
will live on.
I loved you, but God loved you best.

Your true friend,
Janet "Jay" Crooke



TO OUR "AUNTAMY"

Even though we weren't relatives,
you became our aunt
A sister to our mother, a sister that she needed,
you were our aunt
Through trying times, and there were many,
if not for you, Aunt Amy
Your kindness, your generosity,
Your quick, comical smile, your stern look,
You were there, we can never
forget the aunt that you were.
God be with you


Jay's children,
Wayne, Deborah. Nydia, Cicily, Celina
Orlando, Roland. Cindy. Kwame and Paul
