Susan Dianne (Snell) Amorese “Memaw”, 63, of East Palatka, passed from this life on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at her home in East Palatka, Florida. Born on 24 November 1955, she was a native of Norfolk, Virginia, and had lived in Putnam County for the past 2 years coming from Knott's Island, North Carolina. She had worked and retired as a Customer Service Representative for Virginia Power in the Tidewater area of Virginia for many years where she met her loving husband James (Richard) Amorese. Susan enjoyed hosting Bible study groups, working in the Church, hosting family vacations and events for her children, grand-children and friends. She loved to dance and was even able to dance at her daughter's wedding, less 3 years ago. She loved traveling. She and Richard had traveled extensively in their retirement years, both in and out of the country as well as up and down the eastern and western seaboards, she only lacked seeing 4 of these 50 United States. She had a passion for scrapbooking with her close friends and she has left a beautiful legacy by personalizing a scrapbook for each of her children and grandchildren. Her passion was Jesus and her family!
She was particularly fond of her furry family members through the years, dogs Shannon, Peaches, Abigale and Isabelle.
She is survived by her loving husband of 36 years, James Richard Amorese; son, Matthew (Beth) Amorese of Knott's Island, NC; daughters, Joanne (Ricky) Bybee of East Palatka, Florida, and Jessica (Steven) Morrison-Slaughter of Dyersburg, TN; brother, Willie (Laura) Snell of VA; sisters, Barbara (Don) Henry of NC and Beverly (John) Centleder of NC.
Susan cherished the love of 14 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren.
A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, 19 October 2019 at 2pm at the Knott’s Island United Methodist Church in Knott’s Island, North Carolina, with the Reverend Frank Jennings officiating. There will be food and fellowship of family and friends immediately following in the fellowship hall.
The family would like to acknowledge and commend the love and support of all those who help care for Susan, physically and spiritually, specifically Community Hospice. There were so many to help care for all of us. God Bless you all and the work you do!
The family requests that donations be made to Knott's Island United Methodist Church in lieu of flowers.
