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.

A celebration of Amy's life will be held at the Mackey Funeral Home, 128 South Main St., Middleton, MA on September 12 at 11AM. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the American Diabetes Association, 10 Speen St., Framingham, MA 01701, the Home for Little Wanderers, 10 Guest St., Boston, MA 02135, Rosie’s Place, 889 Harrison Ave., Boston, MA 02118 or just a random act of kindness.


Online Condolences Below

Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die. The world got a little darker on August 20th. We lost another ray of sunshine, but she would not want us to mourn her death. She'd want us to celebrate her life, and those who passed before her that she's with now. I can't remember a time I ever saw Amy not smiling or laughing...or making someone else laugh. That's just the kind of person she was. She will be deeply missed. I wish I'd been able to spend more time with her. Life always seems to get in the way, and then you realize it's too late. I hope she knows how much she was loved. Rest in peace, cousin. ♡ Heather
Dearest Amy, I will miss your beautiful smile and the laughter you so freely shared with us all. My life has been blessed by sharing yours and I will carry you in my heart always. Auntie, Beth, and family, I extended to you all my deepest sympathy and condolences. Mere words cannot adequately express the sadness I share with you all. ~Lois~
RIP Amy heaven has gained another Angel ~Mary Cordero~
Amy, Thank you for all the love and kindness you gave the world. We will always hold you in our hearts and love you. The world is less bright these days but your light will shine forever. I not only loved you, I respected the woman you became. I love you forever, Mom.
Beth...I am SO sorry to hear of your loss. I can't imagine the pain of losing yet another sister. I remember our speaking of losing a sister and sharing that pain and so saddened to hear of you losing yet another. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. Love you Beth, Donna Paige
