JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Our sweet daughter, Amy Kathleen Esque, went peacefully to dwell with our Lord Tuesday, October 9, 2012, surrounded by her family.
Born August 17, 1973, in Jacksonville, Fla., she was a daughter of Rolland “RC” and Deborah Esque.
Amy lived most of her life in Oklahoma, attended Wickline Methodist Church in Midwest City, graduated from Midwest City High School in 1991, attended Oklahoma State University, and taught AutoCAD at Oklahoma State University Tech in Oklahoma City. She relocated to Florida in 2002 and began her banking career with JP Morgan Chase in 2006. Amy was an avid sports fan (hockey, football, golf) and a lifetime commitment to the Girl Scouts of America and her troop 549 gave her many hours of pleasure. She loved the banking business and her work family. Amy had no regrets in her life and always encouraged her family and friends to move forward with courage and determination. She will be remembered as a determined, loving, generous and kind soul who was devoted her to faith, family and friends.
Preceding her in death was her maternal grandparents, Bernard and Phyllis Orr, and her paternal grandparents, Carmel Esque and Hazel Johnston Esque Ellis.
Additional survivors include her brothers, Brian (Rebecca) and C. Michael (Kimberly) Esque; nieces, her Little People, Kendall, Parker, and Olivia Esque; her Uncle Bub (Charles) and Aunt Jeanette Esque; grandfather, Lloyd “Paw-Paw” Ellis of Whitman, and her many cousins.
A celebration of life for family and friends will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, October 20, in The Oaklawn Chapel with family friend Wendell Smith leading the service.
Donations can be made in her memory to the Acosta-Rua Center Community Hospice of NE Florida, 5450 Ramona Blvd., Jacksonville, FL 32205.
