She attended Midlands Technical College and received a degree in horticulture. She and her family owned and operated The Petal Pusher's Greenhouses. Their home was a popular site on the Christmas lights tour on Crepe Myrtle Circle in the Oak Grove community for many years. She was a very loving wife, wonderful mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. Mrs. Amick was the daughter of the late Broadus Carlton Cockrell and Bertha Reynolds Cockrell of Batesburg. Mrs. Amick is survived by her loving husband of 62 years, Gordon L. Amick; daughter, Genny A.

The family will receive friends from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, at Thompson Funeral Home of Lexington.
