Amy Lyall Alfred

January 25, 1925 — November 15, 2018

Amy Lyall Alfred, 93, a resident of Patterson, passed away peacefully on Thursday, November 15, 2018, at Patterson Health Care Center.

Amy was born on January 25, 1925, in Morgan City, the daughter of John Kenneth Lyall and Margaret Gast Lyall.

Amy was raised in Gibson and graduated from Morgan City High School where she was a Mu Sigma Honor Society Student and star basketball player. She began working at what is now Hancock Whitney Bank in 1945 and in 1948 she took time off to raise her family. In 1960, she went back to the bank and retired after working 31 years. Amy loved her children and her grandchildren, always watching them in their various activities; she absolutely loved baseball and tolerated football. When she wasn’t working or raising her family she enjoyed doing crossword puzzles and loved sewing. She looked forward to her family trips traveling to Pennsylvania to see her sisters. Amy was an adoring fan of Elvis Presley and loved listening to his music. She loved her church, Pharr Chapel United Methodist Church, where she was the bookkeeper for many years. 

She will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by four children, Callan J. Alfred, Jr., of Morgan City, Kenneth E. Alfred and wife Judy of Bayou Vista, Mark A.
