Mrs. Amy Lee Maultsby Colvett, a lifetime resident of Pulaski, Tenn., died peacefully at her home surrounded by her family on Friday, April 9th.
She was born on September 20, 1947, to parents Cora Lee Jones and Morris Rogers Maultsby. She was a retired and fifth-generation employee of the Postal Service, a loyal member of East Hill Church of Christ, and a published photographer. She loved to collect historical artifacts, four-leaf clovers, and handmade quilts. Her gift of cooking was noted by all those who passed through her kitchen. She won the inaugural Keep Giles County Beautiful Award for countless hours spent picking up debris on Highway 64 West in the Bodenham community. She had a wonderful sense of humor, and beyond being a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, was a bright light to all that knew her.
She is preceded in death by parents Cora Lee Jones and Morris Rogers Maultsby. Survivors include husband Joe David Colvett Sr., brother Roger Maultsby of Nashville, Tenn., daughter Sandra Shugart (Wes) of Brentwood, Tenn., son Joe David Colvett, Jr. of Pulaski, Tenn., grandsons Cole Shugart of Nashville, Tenn., and Curtis Colvett of New Haven, Conn., and many dearly loved cousins and friends.
A private family service will take place this week. A celebration of life will be planned for a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association (alz.org).
Bennett-May & Pierce Funeral Home and Crematory is in charge of arrangements for Mrs. Amy Lee Maultsby Colvett.
