Minnie Amos Blount

Minnie was born October 2, 1944 in Portsmouth Virginia to the late Samuel and Tiny Amos. Having attended Portsmouth Public Schools, she graduated from I. C. Norcom High School in 1964 and attended what was then Norfolk State College. Minnie graduated from Tabernacle Bible College in Norfolk, VA.  She was employed by the Chesapeake School System for over 25 years.

Minnie was one of seven “Amos” siblings. Jerushia (Ruth), Samuel (Romain), Wanda (Bell), and Ellen (Trish) preceded her in death.  She is survived by Rosa (Lee) and Barbara (Reidi.) Her niece and nephews (Tonya, Napoleon, Charles, and Richard) also survive her. A host of other relatives and friends mourn her loss.

Minnie married the love of her life – Clarence V. Blount, Jr. and to this union two sons were born, Larry D. Blount and Clarence V. Blount, III. Minnie was extremely devoted to granddaughter, LaDonna and her husband, Deshaun King. She adored her great-granddaughter Kennedy, who affectionally referred to Minnie as her “GG.”

Minnie was an excellent cook and immaculate housekeeper.  Bit, as she was affectionately called, loved God, her family, friends and the St. Mark Deliverance Center church family (Portsmouth) where she was a member.  She was a dedicated member of the Silver Strands senior group.  Please know that all of your kind deeds and thoughtful expressions of love and concern have been a great source of comfort and strength to us during this time of loss. A special thank you is extended to Grover Cleveland Jones and Elsie Vernett for their invaluable assistance during these challenging times – may God reward all of you as only He can. We miss “Miss Minnie” – who slipped away September 5, 2020. She is gone but certainly not forgotten. With much gratitude and appreciation – The Family.

    Prayers and condolences to the Blount and Amos family. Deacon Minnie will never be forgotten in the Jones Family. She loved Chief Apostle Marion Jones. She picked on me a lot as being a Pastor’s daughter, but one thing about she never changed. Her love and picking with me continued even when my mom passed and I will never forget the golden nuggets (words of encouragement) she had given me through the years. Gone but never forgotten. To the family, Clarence, LaDonna, Dr. Amos, and the ones I don’t know the names, my prayers are with you all. Much love to you.

    Cousin Minnie, as she was known to me, was my married to my father’s nephew. I saw her on many occasions growing up when she visited the house with her two sons, my cousins. I had the pleasure of seeing her a few times in recent years, usually with her granddaughter, LaDonna. Minnie was always very sweet, cheerful, and had a beautiful smile! Our deepest sympathy to Clarence, LaDonna and the rest of the Amos and Blount families.

    When I was a young girl I loved to go to Clarence and Minnie’s house with Bishop Barbara Amos during the Christmas holidays. Many years Clarence would always give Minnie a beautiful new set of wedding rings. When I got married I would ask my husband for new wedding ring sets because I admired the way Clarence showed his love for Minnie.
    Lil Clarence , you are in my prayers.

    We were saddened when we heard that Mrs. Blount had passed. She was the epitome of a Virtuous Woman. Her kind and caring spirit was always welcomed by everyone. She was very genuine and sincere and it was always demonstrated through her giving and words of encouragement. There is one thing we know and that is she is in heaven with the Lord. Minnie Amos Blount was a true servant of God and she will be missed! Our sincerest sympathy to you Clarence, LaDonna and the rest of the Amos and Blount Family.
