Amelia McCarty Obituary

Amelia Ann McCarty, 28, a resident of Longswamp Township in Berks County, unexpectedly passed away on October 8, 2023, at Lehigh Valley Hospital.

Born on October 14, 1994, in Allentown, Lehigh County, she was the beloved daughter of Robert E. McCarty, Jr., of Barto, and Lisa Vazquez of Mertztown. She was a 2012 graduate of Brandywine Heights High School. Amelia's spirit brimmed with kindness, passion, and creativity. 

Amelia was an artist at heart and in practice, with an unwavering love for art, photography, and design. She found beauty in every moment and expressed it through her artistry. Her creativity knew no bounds as she embarked on paths pursuing both a career as a tattoo artist and a degree in photojournalism at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). Whether it was through her sketches, poems, or the way she brought life to simple moments, Amelia had a way of making the world a more beautiful place. One of Amelia's notable design achievements was her role in designing movie posters, including one for a major motion picture and others for short films. 

Amelia's love for her surviving son, Riley, was an enduring, unwavering bond that defined her life. She cherished every single moment they spent together, their laughter and shared growth and appreciation of laughter and fun forming an unbreakable connection. From bedtime stories to impromptu adventures, she filled his life with joy, imagination, and the warmth of a mother's love.

She is survived by her mother, father, her brother, Colin R. McCarty of Chino, California, and her maternal grandparents, Felipe and Bertha (Arndt) Vazquez of Kutztown. Her paternal grandparents, Robert E. McCarty Sr., and Joy M. (Hawthorne) McCarty preceded her in death.

A memorial service to celebrate Amelia's life will be held at a later date, allowing family and friends to pay their respects and honor her memory.
