Amelia Griffin Hendricks was born in Raleigh, NC on November 19, 1956 and went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on July 26, 2018 after fighting a long and courageous battle with cancer. She attended Myrtle Underwood Elementary, Daniels Junior High and Needham Broughton High School. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Masters of Science in Nursing from UNC-CH. She also received her CCRN certification. Amelia worked at Wake Medical Center as a Cardiovascular Clinical Nurse Specialist, was the Owner and Director of the Carolina Center for Nursing Education in Raleigh for over six years and was the Nursing Associate Director of AHEC in Raleigh. She was adjunct faculty at the UNC-CH School of Nursing, was published in the nursing literature in the areas of cardiovascular nursing and flew with Duke Life Flight. After marrying Scott, she suspended her nursing career to homeschool her three step-children. Upon completing that task, Amelia received her Real Estate license and managed rental property. She ultimately had her dream farm and moved to Alton, Virginia where she raised goats and other livestock and became the ultimate homesteader. At her farm she was able to have a prolific garden, tend her beloved animals and publish her Bible study, Know the Future: A Biblical Study of the End-Times.

She is survived by her husband, Scott Hendricks, her step-children and their families, Jonathan and Kristi Hendricks of Cary, grandchildren Joshua and Kelly Grace Hendricks, Bernie and Kevin Lieske of Nashville, Tennessee, Sydney and Jesse Hendricks of Alton, Virginia and grandchildren Isaac, Dorey and Abigail Amelia Hendricks, the daughter of her heart, Breanna Lamke of Raleigh, her mother, Betty Griffin of Raleigh, her sisters and their families, Mary Lin and Don Truelove of Hurdle Mills, Claren Truelove of Raleigh, Fabian and Fred Thornhill of Raleigh, Gilson and George Mayo IV of Raleigh and Griffin Thornhill of Nashville, Tennessee, Scottís brothers and their families, Larry, Ben, Harvey, Marlin, Jack and Doug Hendricks of Washington state and Canada.
