Mary Louise Amyx Stine

Mary Louise Amyx Stine

The heart of our family, Mary Louise Amyx Stine, 84, died Sunday morning, November 23, 2014, in the home she built, surrounded by her family.  Louise was born on March 4, 1930, in Ponder, Texas, to James Samuel and Annie May Amyx.  She was the youngest of six children.

She grew up on a large farm helping her family in Texas.  We enjoyed listening to her stories about farm life, including picking cotton.  At 16, she drove her family to Boise pulling all of their belongings in a two-wheeled trailer.  She was a graduate of Franklin High School in Boise.

She met and married Lloyd E. Stine, the love of her life, on October 7, 1950, at the First Baptist Church in Boise.  She devoted her life to her family and was always a help to anyone in need.

In 1968, Louise’s husband, Lloyd, and brother, Red Amyx, encouraged her to build new homes in west Boise.  She built over 45 homes.  Her husband and daughter also helped.  She always tried to build the best home for her customers.  She was a member of the Home Builder’s Association.  She loved the hard work, and wore down many shovels!

She enjoyed traveling in the states, with a special love of the Oregon Coast.  She enjoyed working in her flower beds.  But, most of all, she cherished every moment with her family.

Louise was preceded in death by her parents; sister and husband, Ruby (Ernest) Trietsch; four brothers and their wives, Roy (Freddie) Amyx, Bill (Kittie) Amyx, Red (Jessie) Amyx and Jay Amyx; three brothers-in-law, Ray Queck, Jack Stine and Newt Cameron; and one sister-in-law, Patsy Stine.

She is survived by her husband, Lloyd; her only daughter and son-in-law, Sharon & Clyde Johnson; two grandsons and wife, Fred & Whitney Johnson and Jeff Johnson; two great-granddaughters, Isabella Grace and Edythe Louise; three sisters-in-law, Martha Amyx, Faye Queck and Betty Cameron; and numerous nephews and nieces.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Boise Rescue Mission’s City Light Home for Women and Children, P.O. Box 1494, Boise, Idaho, 83701.

Abiding by her wishes, there will be no funeral or burial service.  Louise loved the Lord and told us all of Jesus’ saving grace by faith.  She lived her faith by always serving and placing other’s needs before herself.  She will be greatly missed, until we meet again.
