Amy was born in Eden, North Carolina on August 23, 1976 to Maria Land Carter and Robert “Sam” Samuel Minter.  She attended John Motley Morehead and was attentive to graduate Class of 1994.  Amy was a homemaker that loved her family and taking care of them with the compassion and love that was embedded into her heart through the upbringing she was taught at a very early age from her parents.  She was of the Christian faith and believed God’s love that embraced her life.  Throughout Amy’s life, she faced an overflow of grief and heartache that most parents never have had to face; she lost her 2nd oldest child, two and a half years ago. Amy often stated, “Robby was a Godsend in helping her cope with the loss of son, Thomas. But her greatest loss was her own life along with her youngest son, “Robby” in a tragic automobile accident.  The Bible quotes in James 5:15, “God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, or sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.  If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.”

Amy is preceded in death by her two sons, Thomas Kullberg and Robert “Robby Schultz.

Robert Samuel Vincent Schultz, affectingly known as “Robby”, was born in Jacksonville, North Carolina on September 26, 2017 to Phillip Schultz and the late Amy Minter.  He only lived here on his earthly home for 18 months but he was full of joy and laughter and was truly loved by all of his family, especially the motherly bond between mother and child.  Words of comfort for the innocent, Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these," Matthew 19:14
