Sis. Amie “Othia” McIntire, 83 of Scottsboro, won her race and went to be with the Lord on Thursday, May 5, 2022. Her firm belief in God and her deep devotion to her family sustained her all the days of her life.
Sis. Othia was born to the late Harvey and Mamie Miller on Thursday, February 16, 1939 and was blessed with a large and loving family. She worked hard during her life and often spoke of when she worked in the cotton fields growing up. She married Herman McIntire in 1964 in Section, later beginning her journey for the Lord in 1972. She raised her three children with patience and love and was a devout member of the Stevenson Free Holiness Church. Sis. Othia loved to laugh and smile and strived for peace with everyone. Over the years, she carried many people to church who could not carry themselves and took in many nieces and nephews. She loved to help people, and she was always willing to help anyone in need.
