Obituary of Amy Lynn Bishop
Amy Lynn Bishop left this world on Sunday, December 4th after losing an almost year-long fight against leukemia and its subsequent complications. She fought with everything she had up until the very end, because that was who she was. Remember her for her strength and her willpower in the face of adversity, but above all remember her for who she was, who she is, and who she will always be; forever and always.
Amy loved her family fiercely. Though she may have left this mortal coil far too soon, she goes to no strange place. She goes to wherever it is we all go, where those who came before await her arrival, for they have also missed her: Great Grandma Blish, Great Grandpa Blish, Great Grandma Welch, Great Grandpa Welch, Great aunt Alice and Uncle Dave.
To help her on her onwards journey are those who were also taken from this world far too soon, Meme, Aunt Penny, Grandma Shirley, and Aunt Diane, who will welcome her with warm embraces.
Dearly departed, she leaves behind so many who loved her, love her, and will continue to love her to the ends of the earth and beyond. Not least among those are her Mother Debbie, whose love for her knows no bounds, and Debbie’s Boyfriend Andy, her Brother Eric and his husband Wayu (aka ’Sweets’) who vow to keep her memory alive as a beacon and place of solace in the many decades to come. She also leaves behind her sister Shannon and her Nephews Isaiah and Jonathan, and Niece Eliana, who she loved since the day they were born and was so happy to be a part of their lives. Amy’s love for family was as boundless as all the world’s oceans and extended to the stars and beyond.
Amy also leaves behind Papa (‘Pop’) and Jenny, Aunt Robin and Uncle Kreg, as well as Aunt Sheryl. She also leaves behind Cousin Jody and her husband Garey and their son Donovan, Cousin and Godson Austin and his wife Maria and their daughters Maelyn and Everleigh, Cousin and Godson Connor and his girlfriend Nicole, and Cousin Braeden.
Stepfather Peter, along with the dogs Jake and Samson, who all loved Amy all through her teenage years and onwards. Stepfather Charlie, who was there through Amy’s younger years.
Amy's family would also like to thank everyone at Yale New Haven Hospital and the Smilow Cancer Center for all the care and support they provided.
A celebration of Amy’s life will be held on December 16th at the Glastonbury Elks Club (98 Woodland Street, South Glastonbury CT, 06073) from 4:00 - 8:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating blood whenever and wherever you can in honor and memory of Amy and to help those who are in desperate need.
