Amy Hope Blair
In December of 1975, Hope's life changed dramatically when Bill died suddenly at home. Not long before, she had begun to study the Bible in depth and had made a profession of faith. It was her faith that helped her through this difficult period and her faith that changed everything going forward. Hope returned to college in her early sixties and completed Bachelor's (1989) and Master's (1993) degrees in counseling at Liberty University. After graduation, she worked in the field, both in private practice and at New Day in Johnstown. She was active in the church at Emmanuel Baptist and led a Bible Study at her home for years. Hope is survived by all seven of her children and all but one of their spouses - Brent and Sandy, Mark and Susan, Kim and Tom Bell, Terry and Elaine, Liza and Jim (deceased) Brazen, Stacy and Jeff Saintz, and Kyle and Sue. She has eleven grandchildren, seventeen great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. Hope loved to read and if you knew her, you probably have received a book from her. She always wanted to write a book herself, and she spent evenings jotting down notes on her yellow tablets. Though her book was never formally published, it was definitely written in the lives of all of the people she met and loved - in who they are and what they have become. We will miss her. We celebrate her life. A gathering of family and friends will be held on Saturday, October 20, 2018 from 9:00-11:00 a.m., followed by a Christian service starting at 11:00 a.m. at the Meek & Dalla Valle Funeral Home, 1312 Graham Avenue, Windber, PA 15963. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to New Day, Inc., 109 South Street, Johnstown, PA 15901 or a charity of your choice. www.meekfuneralhome.com
