Amy Lynn Arpag, 37, passed away peacefully at home on June 15, 2024.

Amy was a bright light in the lives of all who knew her. She loved spending time with her friends and family, bringing joy and laughter into their lives with her sense of humor and beautiful smile. She had a kind, empathetic and gentle heart. She was a wonderful caregiver to her former students at Mary Cariola Center. She also especially loved and cherished time playing with her young nephews and would plan special activities for them to do when they would visit, amongst their favorite was building Marble Genius Marble Runs. She always had as much fun as the boys did! Amy adored family game days with her cousins and aunts, as well as yearly traditional activities and gatherings with the entire family. One of her favorite holidays was Halloween and she would spend hours carving several pumpkins with intricate designs that everyone admired. Most of all, Amy loved spending time with her best friend, her beloved mom. Their bond was unbreakable, and their love for each other was evident to all who knew them. Their connection was a source of strength and comfort for both of them throughout the years.

Amy’s hobbies were as diverse as they were heartfelt. She was an avid reader of many genres, with a vast collection of books and frequent visits to the library. She loved learning new crafts, doing jigsaw puzzles with her Mom, playing video games, card and board games, watching movies, going to plays at the theater, and taking pictures of animals, family and nature. Her favorite place to walk was Tinker Nature Park and she loved seeing all the little animals who crossed her path. Amy had a profound love for all animals and was very attentive to her pets with the utmost care and compassion, special treats, toys and birthday presents. She also loved going to the Adirondacks and walking at Mendon Ponds Park. In the summertime, Amy enjoyed swimming, boat rides, fireworks, rollercoasters, picnics, mini golf and picking the perfect strawberries. She played lacrosse and softball in her teens and learned how to ski when she was three years old, then transitioned into snowboarding. Amy carried on traditional specialty baking of baklava and strietzel which she learned from her Grandma and Grandpa Arpag. Amy channeled her dad’s love of cooking and her mom’s love of baking. Amy also had a passion for a variety of artists and music styles and loved sharing her favorites with others.

Sadly, Amy’s journey was cut short, and she is now reunited with her maternal grandparents, Bill and Ann Bentley, paternal grandparents, Bekir and Sallie Arpag and her nephew Edison Arpag.

She is survived by her loving parents Mark and Cheryl, older brothers Justin Arpag, Jason (Justine) Arpag, three cherished nephews: Greyson, Harrison and Carson Arpag, Aunts and Uncles: Debra Tasseff, Denise (Jimmy) Davis, Cindy Zito, Jan (Kris) Dovan, Dean (Cindy) Arpag, Peter (Karen) Arpag and several fun-loving cousins and their children.

A Celebration of Amy’s Life will take place on Thursday, July 25,2024 for the family members.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Amy’s memory to an animal shelter or a charity of your choice.

Amy Arpag’s memory and spirit will forever be a guiding light in the hearts of the countless lives she touched. Her legacy of love, compassion and joy will continue to inspire all who knew her. Rest in peace, dear Amy. We love you.
