Name: Amy Smithson
Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
DOD: April 20, 2018
Amy Smithson, age 35, passed away on Friday April 20, 2018 of an accidental heroin overdose, after a long, brave battle with addiction. She is survived by her cherished son Tyler Frangiosa, 12, her parents Paul and Linda (Devine), her grandmother Deena Devine, and many loving aunts, uncles, and cousins. Amy never wanted to be defined only by her addictions and mistakes- she was so much more than that. She was a beautiful child who fell into its grip. She would do anything for anyone and always lit up the room with her smile and infectious laugh, even while struggling with her demons. She loved her family deeply, especially her son Tyler. She adored spending time with him and being his Mom. The day Amy died a part of us died along with her. We will miss her every day for the rest of our lives.
