    A family historian of sorts and connector of people, Amy's large extended family and close friends brought her great happiness. She was a thoughtful person with a wonderful smile. Amy got more enjoyment out of her many kindnesses to others than the receivers, frequently baking her famous rum cake and muffins as gifts. She fought the good fight with courage and perseverance. Her feisty personality will be greatly missed. May she finally rest in peace.

    My friend Amy was one of a kind. I loved her twinkling smile, quirky perspectives, & insatiable curiosity. Her talents & creativity in gardening, holiday decorating, & crafting were legendary. We dubbed her "The Spray Paint Queen". It was her favorite way to repurpose almost anything! We had many adventures over the years & I cherish that time we had together. She had a generous heart & loved her family unconditionally. Amy touched our lives in a special way & will live on in our hearts & memories. Her spirit was so strong I’m sure she’s still around enjoying everyone’s remembrances. Miss you Amy!

    So very, very sorry to hear of Amy's passing - and holding Tom and Joe, Julie, Joe, and Jane and all of your families in the light. Condolences also to so many of our old gang who traveled together through SMM grade school, Girl Scouts, Ursuline - and so much thereafter - who will miss her presence. Amy was an "original" and one of the most creative, fun-loving, and organized people I have ever known. She was the spirit of Christmas and we will all no doubt all raise a glass to her memory, and all of our memories, for years to come. Rest in peace, my friend.

    I was so saddened to hear of Amy’s passing, we were grade school pals at St. Mary Magdalen and had run into each other several times over the years. I will keep those sweet memories of passing notes in class, slumber parties, lots of shared giggles (and a bit of Nancy Drew adventure) in my heart always. My sincerest condolences to her family, Andrea Ranauto Hagelstein
