Amy was born July 21, 1934, to parents, Raymond and Johanna Wiley in Des Moines. She graduated from Roosevelt High School and married the love of her life, Jim Brobst, on March 20, 1955. They were together for 57 years. Jim and Amy were founding members of Noelridge Christian Church. She served in the church as outreach director, taught Sunday School, along with other positions. She taught her family about the love of God and the Church. Donutland was her hobby and work for many years. Amy loved her pets, Christian music and spending time with her family. She was blessed by the recent birth of her great-granddaughter, Julia.
Her children put their beloved mother in the hands of Jesus. They are assured her home is heaven so her family will not say goodbye, but see her soon on the other side. What a blessing for Susan, John, Deb and Cindy who will join her there with Dad. Blessings to our beautiful Mom.
