There were days I was just bedridden, but I just thought it was my arthritis”, she had told PEOPLE.
The family had relocated from rural Alaska to the North Cascade Mountains in Washington for Ami’s treatments.

Ami Brown Wiki — Maiden Name, Hometown, Family
Ami Brown’s maiden name is Amora Branson and the full name is Mari Larene Branson Brown.
From her hometown of Texas, she met Billy when she was 15. She got married right away to a then 26-year-old Billy. Technically, the marriage was legal. However, Ami’s mother wanted her teenage daughter to stay in school and finish her education before she got married. So, Ami had to cut ties with her family.
Her mother and brother had accused Billy of forcing her to drop school and being a very controlling husband. Her brother even claimed that when he confronted Billy about Ami’s education, Billy had angrily said
“That’s none of your mother’s business now. She belongs to me!”
Meanwhile, Bily had no one in the family to object to his decision. Sometime before, he had tragically lost his parents and sister in a plane crash when he was only 16.

Having reportedly managed under $800 thousand net worth until early-2021, most of her life Amy Brown has been a homemaker.
As written in her Discovery bio, Amy has forever taken great pride in her garden, where she grew vegetables, herbs, and flowers. In the Alaskan bush, she was even considered an authority on what to grow, when, and how. Besides, she homeschooled her children and became their teacher.
The viewers are well aware of the times when she exchanged gardening and cooking tools for charts and maps as the family’s undisputed navigator. Although maybe not in college or universities, the art and history of navigation is a subject she studied extensively in the past decades.
Alaskan Bush People aired its last episode from the twelfth season on October 18, 2020, and Ami was clearly a fan-favorite on the show, reading books about celestial navigation whenever she wanted to relax.
Just so you know, Ami has a criminal history of welfare fraud. And late-Billy, who was forking over $1.6 million (in 2018) for over 400 acres in Washington, found trouble with the laws for horse theft in 1980.
