~Pre-Arrangement Counselor - All locations~
Amy Downing has been part of the Armes-Hunt family since 2017. Helping people plan their funerals before a death has occurred is her primary responsibility.
Amy is the daughter of Sandy Rogers and the late Rev. Bill Rogers. As a preachers kid, Amy lived in the Parsonages of the Converse United Methodist Church, Mt. Olive United Methodist Church and the Fairmount United Methodist Church, just to name a few! She graduated from Oak Hill High School and Indiana Wesleyan University. She married Frank Downing, a longtime Grant County Funeral Director, over 25 years ago. Together they have two Oak Hill graduate sons, Joshua and Caleb.
When asked why she chose funeral services as a career, Amy replied: "When my dad died, my mom and I had my husband, a funeral director, to help us make those decisions, and it was still very difficult to do. I realized just how much easier it would have been if those decisions were made before. After witnessing the struggles of other families who had not planned for a loss, it became my very goal to keep as many people as possible from facing that same difficult situation. To me, a prearranged funeral just makes sense."
Amy is a member of the Mt. Olive United Methodist Church. In addition, she enjoys gardening, baking, traveling with her husband, and spending time with her family.
