    1. [S4] Obituary.
      Amy Sue Gwaltney Hope, 75, passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 14, in the home of her son in Knoxville, Illinois.
      She was born to Annis Lupton and William Edgar Gwaltney Jr. on September 22, 1939 in New Bern, NC.
      She is survived by her only son, William Martin Hope, Jr., his wife Tina Archer Hope, and her two grandchildren, Martin Emanuel (17) and Kayla Marina (14) of Knoxville, Illinois. She also leaves behind her two sisters, Mildred Gwaltney Harrison of New Bern, NC and Betty Jo Gwaltney Rodgers of Oriental, NC and a very special cousin, Betty Lou Burnett of New Bern, NC.
      Amy Sue graduated from New Bern High School in 1957 and then attended East Carolina College where she earned a BS degree in Science. She taught school in Dobson, NC and then went to Georgia where she met and married William Martin Hope. Amy Sue received her MS degree in Athens, Georgia and then came to live in Rock Hill, SC in 1970 where she taught chemistry at North Western HS and at West Charlotte in NC for 25 years.
      Amy attended Oakland Presbyterian Church and was a member of the Historic Brattonsville Society and the Rock Hill Woman's Club. She also volunteered with Hope house.
      She loved to visit Pamlico and Oriental as often as she could and enjoyed the re-enactments at Brattonsville, studying history, teaching science, crewing and sailing, and spending time with friends and family. Amy Sue will be remembered as a charming and generous lady, loving mother, loyal sister and cousin, proud grandmother, dedicated teacher and dear friend to so many.
      A Memorial service is planned for late December at Oakland Presbyterian Church in Rock Hill, SC. To leave online condolences or questions, share special memories and/or to be informed of the date and time of service, please contact
