On behalf of the John and Fay Ameis Family, we are saddened to let you to know that our Mother, Elvy Fay Ameis passed away, early this morning, Monday, March 16, 2020. We will continue to thank God, every day, for the Wonderful Gift of God that she was, and will continue to be, for us. What a terrific Role Model she has been, her whole life!!! We also thank God for her Care Givers and Bethesda Hawthorne for the excellent and loving care they provided her. Our mother loved them and appreciated their commitment to serve her. In addition, we thank God for all our relatives and friends, who have been so supportive, with prayers and words of encouragement and consolation, through these past ten months or so. What a Blessing you all are!!! Thank You!!!
As you know or may suspect, this is a rather bizarre time to plan a Celebration and Funeral for our Mother. The Coronavirus has really upset the applecart. The Archdiocese has limited the number of people that can gather for an event, such as, a funeral. Many businesses are closing, changing or suspending operations that serve many of the publics’ basic needs. While we regret this current environment, the wise choice is to follow the recommendations of our Community Leaders and limit the participation in this Special Gathering.
As a result, following are our plans for our Mother’s Funeral: Only the immediate family is invited to participate directly in her Funeral Mass and Interment Service. This would include Fay’s children, their spouses and their children, the grandchildren. This small list pushes the limit, of the number of participants, that we are allowed to invite. We know that many of you will be disappointed by this decision, but we ask your understanding and forgiveness, in light of these current circumstances.
Kutis Funeral Home is serving our family, and there will be no services at their facility. Memorial contributions may be made to the St. Vincent de Paul Society, Queen of All Saints, 6603 Christopher Drive, St. Louis, MO, 63129.
