Amy Hall Cheek was pronounced deceased the evening of January 7th at the age of 46. She was kept on support for tests because she had elected to be an organ donor.
That’s Amy in a nutshell, a very giving, loving person that could make you laugh so easily one second then make you want to fuss her out the next second.
Amy is survived by her husband Andy Cheek of nearly 18 years. She is also survived by her son JT and step daughter Joanna and Joanna’s son and Amy’s grandson Dakota. Amy is also survived by her siblings Teresa Hall King, Christie Hall Benoy, and Allen Hall.
Amy is survived by her nieces Chasity Fowler , Kayla Benoy, and Cameron Cheek and brother in law Bill Cheek.
Amy was born in Guilford county North Carolina to James and Patricia Hall. Amy completed her GED and completed training as a CNA II. She also began study as a Medical Assistant at Brookstone College.
Amy loved making crafts, shopping, family gatherings, and watching her “soaps”.
Amy wanted to not hide how she passed because she prayed that someone could be saved from the disease of drug addiction.
Amy died because of illegal drug usage of several years and it was either caused by the use or a byproduct of the use. If you could see her arms, you would see the devastating effect of drug abuse by needles. They looked worse than a burn victim, yet even seeing that and the infections they caused didn’t deter her from using over and over. Amy spent nearly all her families money for drugs, borrowed from drug dealers, pawned, and stole from her family to pay for her addiction. Amy would be extremely ill and agitated when she was not on a high. Amy would speak to you in a way to hurt you so deeply and to push you away. Amy nearly lost her families home because of all the money spent on drugs. Amy literally became another person.
Addiction is real as it gets and it is an evil thing that grips you and tries its best to not let you go. It will possess you to the point of also neglecting almost everything in your life. Your family, their health, and your homes upkeep. Amy wanted to stop by any means possible, but the addiction was too strong.
If you are using now or considering trying in the future, she begs you to reconsider. Find help, and find it early enough before it is too late to recover. Amy was so giving before the drugs and she wants to give someone a lesson learned by her life. Please don’t be another statistic torn away by these life altering evil substitutes for real joy.
