Amy Elizabeth Ramage, 37, of Little Rock, Arkansas, went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Sunday, August 27, 2023. Amy was born November 19, 1985, in Pryor, Oklahoma, to Roy and Connie Jackson.
Amy graduated from Pryor High School where she was selected as the drum major, and she also excelled on the French horn. She learned the marimba (with instruction from her band director father) which enabled her to capture the title of Miss Pryor 2003. In addition to musical instruments, Amy also had a beautiful soprano singing voice and enjoyed sharing it with others through her participation in the high school choir and her local church.
Amy earned her bachelor’s degree in hospitality from the University of Arkansas where she was a member of the University of Arkansas Razorback Band and a University of Arkansas Resident Advisor. She earned her master’s degree from the University of South Carolina and became the Director of Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management Internship Program. Amy later served as the Director of Member Relations at the Alotian Golf Club.
Amy was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents Forrest and Barbara Jackson, and maternal grandparents Dean and Jo Austin.
Amy was of Baptist faith and attended That.Church. Her strong Christian beliefs were reflected in her actions of service to those around her. She always helped others and her love for Christ showed brightly whether she was volunteering after a tornado, making cinnamon rolls to raise money for a charity, or giving her time and efforts to the Foster/Adopt Support Group. These are just a few of the many actions that exemplified her servant's heart.
It is evident that family was most important to Amy. Amy and Daniel were married on April 13, 2013, and the two were blessed with daughters Annemarie and Madilyn. Amy’s priority was to raise her children in a home that serves the Lord. Amy loved the Lord and her country. She was very patriotic and took pride in supporting Daniel in the military. It was important to Amy for her girls to value the men and women who serve in the U.S. military. She taught them to shout “Merica!” whenever they saw a C-130 flying.
Amy is survived by her husband, Daniel Ramage; daughters Annemarie and Madilyn Ramage of the home; parents Roy and Connie Jackson of Pryor, Oklahoma; sister Ashlee (David) Elliott of South Asia; aunt Judy Jackson of Tulsa, Oklahoma; uncle Jerry Jackson of Tulsa, Oklahoma; Eddie (Debbie) Austin of Bentonville, Arkansas; DeAnn (Lindall) McMasters of Gravette, Arkansas; Angie Allen of Pryor, Oklahoma; step-grandmother Betty Austin of Pryor, Oklahoma; father-in-law and mother-in-law Chuck and Vicky Ramage of Higden, Arkansas; brother-in-law Nathan (Sophia) Ramage of Palmer, Alaska; and sister-in-law Kristin (Matthew) Manos of Star City, Arkansas. Amy is also survived by additional aunts and uncles as well as nieces and nephews Faith, Josiah and Karis Elliott and Jennetta and Alexander Manos.
The family will receive friends on Tuesday, September 5, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Smith Sherwood Funeral Home (7700 Hwy 107). Following a private burial at the Arkansas State Veterans Cemetery, a celebration of life service will be held on Wednesday, September 6, at 2:00 p.m. at That.Church with Eddy Brand, Wendell Lang and Scott Harness officiating.
