Martha E. Amick


Martha Ellen Amick, 89, of Gilbert, S.C., passed away August 8, 2020. She was born in Gilbert on February 14, 1931, the third of 10 children to the late Horace Clayburn Amick and Eva Rosabelle Frick Amick.

Martha attended the Gilbert School System grades 1-12. She was unable to complete the last few weeks of her 12th grade due to health issues. She was very instrumental in assisting with raising her younger siblings as she enjoyed being at home, and she was a good contributor to the many tasks which were always required on a family farm with a large household with younger children. Martha was gifted with good penmanship and wrote many, many letters to her relatives, friends and acquaintances over a period of many years.

Martha is survived by one sister, Ann Amick Adams; three brothers, Robert Amick, Bruce Amick and Heyward Amick. Martha was preceded in death by her sisters, Frances Amick Davis and Caroline Amick Frick; brothers, Hubert Amick, Thomas Amick and Ray Amick.

The graveside service was held at Cedar Grove Evangelical Lutheran Church Cemetery, 1220 Cedar Grove Road, Leesville, SC 29070 at 11 a.m. on Monday, August 10, 2020 with Pastor Joe Woodward presiding.
