Jennie Louise Amick, 101, of William Penn Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, and formerly of Reedsville and Yeagertown, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Friday November 20, 2020.
She was the last of her immediate family.
She is survived by two daughters and their husbands: Shirley and Dennis Bowen, of Lewistown, and Bonnie and Jim Harper, of Middletown. Grandchildren: Marty and Sean Bowen, of Lewistown, Brian Harper, of Sinking Springs, PA and John Harper of Colorado. Great-Grandchildren: Alexa Smith, Noah Bowen, McKennah Bowen, Jordan Harper, Dakota Harper, Cole Harper, Chase Harper, Logan Harper, and Sienna and Anabella Bowen; and Two Great-Great Grandchildren, Landon Bowen and Prescott Smith.
Louise was a Methodist by faith. She grew up in Johnstown and graduated from Johnstown High School and married John Amick in 1933.
Louise played many roles in her life; mother, wife, and peacemaker for our dad after a day as a state policeman. She would make soup with the ladies from our playground. Served with the Republican Party serving as both chairman and vice chairman. She worked outside the home for a short period at MiffCo, then had to leave to become a full-time caregiver for her mother-in-law.
In their early life together, Louise ran the house as John was stationed away from here. She even endured having dad kidnapped. She was always there for him when he came home to talk or spend time together.
Louise loved watching the birds and they had many feeders around their home. Before she had her stroke in 2010, she rode an ATV, a helicopter, went on a cruise, and went to Disney World, as well as other parks in Florida.
She was always curious about what was to come next. She had looked forward to all the new technologies. Unfortunately, her stroke took a lot of that enthusiasm away with right-side paralysis, loss of speech, hearing and sight.
Family and friends visited her frequently which she looked forward to.
Her and Dad enjoyed gardening and had one until they couldn’t any longer. Mom would can with her daughters, and loved taking trips in their RV with family and friends.
Louise loved all of her grandchildren and all the others that followed.
She will be greatly missed by her family, especially by her daughters. She always had a smile and was there to help in anyway she could. She would joke about living so long. She missed our dad terribly at times and as a comfort to us we believe she is now with her beloved John planning for their next garden.
Services will be announced at a later date.
Arrangements are under the care of The King-Barr Funeral Home LLC & Crematory, 120 Logan Street, Lewistown.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Louise’s memory are respectfully encouraged to: Yeagertown United Methodist Church, 7 N Mann Ave Yeagertown PA 17099.

My prayers go out to Bonnie and Shirley on the passing of their mother. Seeing her picture brought back a lot of childhood memories from when we were neighbors on North Main Street in Yeagertown. May God put his blessings on you all. Bob Gantz
