And as part of a tight-knit Amish community she learned the art of caring and sharing. In 1997 while living in Sun City, Arizona, Suvilla participated in a class for writing life stories.

This little book is just a taste of Amboy’s yesteryears. It’s not meant to be an exhaustive history lesson or even a complete listing of eye-witness happenings. It’s the voices of people who lived in and around Amboy through the century; it’s a collective history, with some folklore mixed in.
