Amy Diane King


Mrs. Amy Diane King, of Wilmington and Pleasure Island, NC, born on December 18, 1976 to Michael Holden and Diane Heglar, went to be with her Lord on the morning July 21, 2021, in the ICU at New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington, surrounded by her family and close friends, after a 9 day fight for her life caused by insurmountable brain damage due to unknown causes. Amy was 44 years old.

Amy had several passions in her life. She loved her family, and was herself responsible for the education of her children for 19 years. She loved the holidays and gatherings associated with them. She loved her home school community. She loved sign language and the deaf community. She loved her church and the believing community in Wilmington. She loved our extended soccer family which surrounded us for 15 years. She loved freedom and the principles that underpinned it. She loved the gospel of Jesus Christ and the expectation of being with a gracious and perfect God in eternity.

Amy is survived by her husband of 23 years, Aaron, her 3 daughters, Micah, Noel, Mara Naomi, her son, Eli, her brother, Timothy Holden, her mother, Diane Heglar, and her father, Michael Holden. She was preceded in death by her daughter Kylie, and her son Ari.

A memorial service will be held at Lifepoint Church at 3534 S. College Rd. at 3pm on July 31, with a reception to follow.
