Amy Jane Greer Snipes

October 6, 1942 - October 15, 2021

Amy Jane Greer Snipes, 79, of Concord, lost her battle with metastatic breast cancer Friday, Oct. 15, 2021.

She was born Oct. 6, 1942, in Concord, to the late Jessie Hopkins and Margaret Sides Greer. She was a 1960 graduate of Harrisburg High School and a graduate of Evans Business School. Amy began her career in the early 70s as an administrative assistant to the Dean of Students and later to Dr. Mabel P. McLean, president of Barber-Scotia College. In the mid-1980s, Amy went to work at First Charter National Bank in the Human Resources Department. In 1996, when Dr. Sammie Potts returned to Concord to take the position as president of Barber-Scotia College, it was her friendship with him and her great love for the college that led her back home (as she called it) to be his assistant, where she would remain until her retirement.

Amy was a great mother, grandmother and friend to all. She never met a stranger and would always go out of her way to help someone in need. She loved animals especially cats, birds and butterflies. In healthier years, she always took in stray cats, kept many bird feeders filled and she always planted flowers and bushes that would attract butterflies. She loved the beauty of nature and being outside was her paradise.

Those left to cherish her memory are her daughter, Julie Snipes Fitch and husband, Keith of Concord; grandson, Hayden Keith Fitch of Concord; sister, Libby Greer Barrier and husband, Gary of Mt. Pleasant; niece, Amy Barrier Altshul of West Chester, Pa.; nephew, Jess F. Barrier and wife, Jill of Mt. Pleasant; and special cousins, Melissa Sides, Joanna Lipe, Johnny and Janet Cline, Susan and Gene Swaringen; great-nieces and -nephews, Austin and Alyssa Barrier, Ethan, Zachary and Alice Altshul.

The family will receive friends Sunday, Oct. 17, from 4 to 6 p.m., at Wilkinson Funeral Home. A graveside service, officiated by the Rev. Tamara Wensil, will be held at 3 p.m., Monday, Oct. 18, at Rocky Ridge United Methodist Church Cemetery in Concord.

Memorials may be made in her memory to Hospice of Cabarrus County, 5003 Hospice Lane, Kannapolis, NC 28081 and/or Rocky Ridge United Methodist Church, 1428 Old Charlotte Rd., Concord, NC 28027.
