Amy Susan Foster joined loved ones who have passed before her on August 20, 2015. Amy was a wonderful woman and was easily recognized by her stunning blonde hair. Her nickname growing up was Sunny because of the way the sun shone through it and lit it up . Her arresting blue eyes, full of love, kindness, intelligence and a little bit of mischief were the first thing you noticed. Her fun loving spirit and witty sense of humor always welcome, will be missed. She had an infectious laugh and was was never at a loss for words.
Amy lived in the South End of her beloved city of Boston. She was an avid Red Sox fan and took advantage of all that Boston had to offer. Amy was an ardent film buff, always attended the Boston film festival and was invited to many premiers. Those of us who went to the movies with her knew that there would be a lengthy, often heated discussion of the film at her favorite food hangout, the S&S in Cambridge. She loved going to the Mendon Drive in with her good friend Stephen. She went to almost all of the plays and art openings and never missed David Sedaris when he was in Boston.
Amy grew up in Sharon, Mass. and graduated from Sharon High School. After attending The Rhode Island School of Design, Amy worked as an independent graphic artist and often donated her services to many non profit organizations. Before establishing herself as a graphic artist, Amy was a successful software support professional and won many awards. Volunteerism was important to Amy and in addition to helping out in homeless shelters she would gather warm blankets and coats from friends, families and thrift stores and pass them out to those in need.
Amy was preceded by her beloved sister Jill Christine with whom she shared her love of art and music. Also her father, Douglas Foster, whom she learned the importance of volunteerism, her commitment and support of civil rights, and her love, appreciation and gratitude for our world and each other. Her loving Auntie Doris, a true woman of substance has welcomed her into heaven with open arms and her Uncle Warren is sitting beside her challenging her with his wit. She is also back in the arms of first, true love.
Amy will be greatly missed by her mother Margery of Sharon, Mass, her sister Beth, her brother in law Jerry and her nephews Marco and Enrico Caserta of Topsfield. Amy also leaves her cousins Lois, Bill, Heather and Holly of Westport and Brockton.
