June 8, 1946 – March 5, 2018
Amelia Louise Hattaway Harvell Josey, 71, of Pensacola, FL went to be with the Lord on Monday, March 5, 2018. She was born to her loving parents, Fonzie and Edna “Louise” Hattaway on June 8, 1946 in Pensacola, FL.
She had grown up at 2 Boland Place with her family. She attended school at Allie Yniestra Elementary, Blount Junior High, right across the street, and Pensacola High School. Later in life she attended Pensacola Junior College to further her education in Dental Assisting. She had worked many devoted years at the Pensacola News Journal; she was, also, an Adjunct Instructor at Pensacola Junior College in the Dental Assisting Program, and finally retired from Blue Cross Blue Shield, currently known as Florida Blue.
Amelia was a devoted servant of the Lord and lived her life through the word of God. She was a lifelong member of Brownsville Baptist Church and New Beginnings Baptist Church. She loved her family and friends dearly as well as she was loved dearly. She will surely be missed by all who came to know and love her.
She now walks alongside the Lord with her mother and father, Fonzie and Louise Hattaway; son, Jeff Harvell; four brothers, Bill Hattaway, Bobby Hattaway, Danny Hattaway, Terry Hattaway; mother-in-law, Claudia Harvell; and father-in-law, Joe Harvell.
