Obituary of Amy J. Wiggans

Amy Jo Wiggans, age 65, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, July 31, 2021. She was born on November 23, 1955, in Ft. Scott, KS, the daughter of Robert Marion Minor and Marilyn Sue (Brooker) Minor, at Mercy Hospital.

Amy devoted her life to taking care of others. She retired from Mercy Hospital as a registered nurse after almost three decades. She was loved by her patients as her true compassion always shined through. She cared and it showed.

Amy loved the Lord, her family, and animals of all kinds (especially dogs). She doted over her grandkids and her dogs. Amy was a member of The Brethren Church and she loved worshipping with that beautiful voice of hers. Amy is home with the Lord and resting in his heavenly arms. All pain is gone and she’s dancing with her Bill.

Survivors include four sons, Randy Wayne (Carrie) Earnest, Bronaugh, MO, Patrick Aaron Earnest, Ft. Scott, William Gerod (Louise) Wiggans, Ft. Scott, and Gary Lee Wiggans; and two brothers, Rob Minor, Fulton, KS, and Floyd Minor, Ft. Scott. Also surviving are Amy’s grandchildren whom she was so proud of; Taylor O’Dell, Koltin Earnest, Mattie Earnest, Garrett Earnest, Isaac Earnest, Nellie Earnest, Kendall Earnest, McCallister Wiggans, Jackson Wiggans, Chandler Lawrence, and a great granddaughter, Everleigh Tyson.

Amy was preceded in death by the love of her life, Bill, and her parents.
