The Rev. Ms. Amy E. Edwards passed away Friday, May 13, 2016.  Born and raised in Rhode Island, Amy was the beloved wife of the late Michael J. B. Pierce, and the daughter of the Rev. Dr. Beverley Edwards and the late Charles G. Edwards, Esq.  Amy is also survived by her sister, Katherine Edwards Mullen and her husband John; her brother Mark Edwards and his wife Wanda; her stepchildren Brittany and Michael Pierce and several nieces and nephews.

Amy was a graduate of Wheeler School, Union College and Suffolk University, School of Law.  Later, Amy earned her degree in social work from Rhode Island College.  Most recently she received her Masters of Divinity from Andover Newton Theological School, in 2015.

The course of Amy's call to ministry was driven by her loving spirit and lifelong desire to serve others.  That path led her through the practice of law, into counseling and therapy, culminating in the creation of Lotus Rising, a holistic wellness center in Fall River, MA.  In August 2015, she was called to serve as Pastor of The Federated Church of Edgartown, MA.

A Celebration of Her Life will be held on Saturday, May 21, 2016 at 11:00 AM at the United Congregational Church, 4 Commons, Little Compton, RI 02837.  Everyone is invited to wear bright colors, in celebration of her life, and to sing as though no one can hear them.  Memorial contributions may be made to the outreach ministries of either the United Congregational Church, P.O.
