Amy Dell Sellers Wickham
May 29, 1934
Daughter of Mary Roberts and Gaddis Sellers
Amy's brother and sisters all attended the Mississippi School for the Deaf, Jackson, MS
Sister of Minnie Alzera (Travis McGaugh), Sarah (Curly Champagne) and Roger (Virginia).
Amy formerly married to William Wickham (deceased) becoming an Army wife. Shortly after she bore three sons, William Jr, Gerald and Stan. In 1983 William Jr. died in a motorcycle accident in Belen.
Amy is survived by her two sons, Gerald and Stan, one Aunt, Louise, cousins, nieces and nephews with many of them also a part of the Deaf community throughout the United States.
There is so much to say about this woman, most important was her strong faith in her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, her reliance on God's Word in the Bible and her love of signing Christian hymns.
Throughout the years Amy served in the Deaf community through the Deaf Senior Citizen Center, New Mexico Baptist Conference of the Deaf (NMBCD) and the Southern Baptist Churches she attended as a Deaf Sunday School leader and WMU leader. Her service for the Lord to the Deaf included many years of being Deaf Camp handcraft leader, signing hymns at worship services, holding a number of offices in NMBCD and going on mission trips with the Deaf.
Amy retired after years of working for the telephone company in Dallas, TX and moved back to New Mexico and in 2010 bought her dream home in the small community of Belen. She loved sewing which she learned from her mom and in later years crocheted and made quilts.
Many thanks to the staff of Corus Hospice and Belen Meadows and two special friends Amy had there, Cheryl and Peter and to Albuquerque Deaf Baptist Church members who were her special friends and to her dear friends at First Baptist Church in Belen for her care, encouragement and prayers which lifted her spirits and eased her final time on earth.
Funeral arrangements were trusted to Noblin Funeral Service, Belen, 418 W. Reinken Avenue Belen, NM 87002, (505) 864-4448.
