Ami Carrillo
Ami Carrillo, age 49, passed away too soon, but peacefully, at her home in Raleigh on December 16, 2021. Ami struggled with lifelong illnesses yet became a good friend to many, especially the less fortunate. Ami was a lifelong companion and soulmate to Kyle Weidner, and an adoring and loving mother to her amazing children, Jasmin Carrillo (daughter of Orly Carrillo) and Jordan Weidner (son of Kyle Weidner). Her children blessed her with her beloved grandbabies, Logan, Mitchell and Juliana. Ami is survived by her beloved little sister Sunita Miller, who she grew up with, and her sister Star Clark, who she recently found.
Ami is also survived by her mother Donna Miller, Greensboro and father, Luke Clark, San Francisco and her stepfather, Robert Miller, New Jersey. and step siblings. Ami is also survived by her Aunt Carole Phillips, Aunt Barbara Weaver, cousins Darin Weaver and Carin Carruth, their spouses and children.
Ami studied Cosmetology and Phlebotomy as a young adult and later enjoyed working in fine dining and managing her home business of repurposing furniture. Ami was a sweetheart and knew how others were feeling due to her god-given gifts of caring, an empathic personality and a huge heart. She regularly collected and donated items and occasionally provided shelter for people in need.

Ami was born in NYC, lived in Jamaica, West Indies as a toddler when her parents had teaching jobs there, Hollywood, Florida, where she met lifelong friends, Green Bay Wisconsin and then Raleigh, as a teenager, due to her mother's job changes.
Ami loved the beach and the mountains, international food, especially Indian, and many types of music. Her favorite song was " One Love" by Bob Marley, hence her hash tag #oneloveami.

It gives Ami's family great comfort to know that Ami is now free of pain and struggle and is reunited in heaven with her beloved grandparents, Stanley and Tessie Weaver and her beloved uncles Paul Weaver and Confrey Phillips as well as some of her childhood and young adult friends who passed away too young and who we believe are all in the heart of their creator in heaven.
Ami's name, which is from the Sanskrit language, means
"Nectar of Eternal Life".
Ami will always be missed, never forgotten and loved eternally.

Our Promise

Apples to Apples

Just like all other licensed funeral homes in North Carolina, City of Oaks Cremation, LLC is regulated by the NC Board of Funeral Service.

The same laws that apply to the big corporate funeral homes also apply to the modest independently owned firms like ours. All crematories in North Carolina, regardless of who owns them, are inspected annually by the state and must adhere to the same rules and laws.

Genuine Care

We're committed to providing families within our community unsurpassed service before, during and after the time of loss.

Our staff will provide clear communication to your family through each step as we move forward from the original phone call notifying us of a death to the time we deliver the urn back to your family. We will treat your family with the utmost respect, as we honor the wishes of your loved one.

We promise to make this process affordable and as endurable as possible.

Our Services

Direct Cremation


Nobody likes surprise costs added in at the last minute. We guarantee you will not find any hidden charges here. We include everything you need for a simple or direct cremation. Simple, affordable and reliable. We have not changed the cost of our direct cremation service since we opened City of Oaks in 2012.

Cremation with Visitation


City of Oaks Funeral Home and Cremation provides an affordable cremation option with onsite visitation. Nobody likes surprise costs added in at the last minute. We guarantee you will not find any hidden charges here. Simple, affordable and reliable.

Immediate Burial


An immediate burial has the same end result as a traditional burial; however, we have eliminated the extra (sometimes unnecessary) services prior to getting to the cemetery. Not everyone wants an open casket for viewing or a limousine for the family. Despite the term immediate, we can move as fast as you need or as slow as you like. This option simply allows you to save money by eliminating some of the fancy extras at the funeral home.

Traditional Funeral


We offer the same traditional funeral services as the big corporately owned funeral homes in the area; however, we cost about half the amount. You might consider a traditional funeral service if your family is looking for an open casket visitation, a traditional church service or a funeral service in the funeral home's chapel. A traditional funeral service can be altered to fit the needs of your family.

Green Burial


This establishment is one of a select number of funeral homes who meet the criteria for providing green funeral service by the Green Burial Council; a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization working to encourage environmentally sustainability in the field of funeral service. Our Green options allow for a funeral to take place without the use of toxic and non-biodegradable materials/chemicals.



As an alternative to traditional cremation, City of Oaks Funeral Home also offers Aquamation. The Aquamation process, often referred to as alkaline hydrolysis, uses a solution of water and potassium hydroxide to facilitate natural decomposition.
