Mrs. Amy Daly Smith, 47, of 2284 N.C. Hwy. 111 South, was promoted to Heaven on Sunday, December 24, 2006 surrounded by her family at the home of her parents, John and Rose Daly.

Amy was born in Bernalillo County, New Mexico on January 16, 1959 to her parents, John P. Daly and Rose Grant Daly. She had worked with Dr. Phil Brantly for 25 years, first as a dental hygienist and later as his office manger.

For those who knew her, Amy will be remembered as a generous, caring, compassionate lady and a loyal friend to so many. The love of Amy's life was God, family and friends. Even during her illness she never gave up or let go of her firm belief in the power of prayer. Amy's determination to let it be God's will was an inspiration to all who knew her. She will be missed by many. Amy was a member of Walker Memorial United Methodist Church, where she served as youth leader and Sunday school teacher for many years.

Amy was a devoted mother and had served on the advisory council for both Spring Creek Elementary School and Spring Creek High School.

A celebration of her life will be held Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at Seymour Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Sherman Guthrie officiating. Interment will be Thursday at 11:00 a.m. at Pineview Cemetery.

Amy is survived by her devoted husband of 26 years, Jimmy A. Smith. In addition to her parents, she also leaves to cherish her memory her daughters, Laura Rose Smith and Elizabeth Daly Smith, of the home; her brother, Alan Daly and his wife, Marie of Seven Springs; and her nephews, John Preston Daly III and William Alan Daly of Seven Springs.

Although flowers are welcome, memorials may be made to Walker Memorial United Methodist Church Building Fund, C/O Jean Daly, 2290 NC 111 South, Goldsboro, NC 27530.

Pallbearers will be Bo Britt, Danny Jackson, Allen Best, Jeremy Joyner, Ronnie Gay, and Charlie Tew.

The family will receive friends Wednesday from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. and also following the service at Seymour Funeral Home and other times at the home of her parents, 322 River Road, Seven Springs.

"For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand, I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith."
