Speigletown- On November 4, 2020, after a brief illness, Amy Edwards passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by her sisterhood of friends. Born March 1, 1958 and raised in Lansingburgh and Speigletown, Amy was the daughter of the late Ruth and Duane Edwards and sister to the late Peter Edwards.
Amy graduated from Lansingburgh High School in 1976 and attended HVCC. During her young adult life, Amy enjoyed her days as a gunner with the Muchachos Drum and Bugle Corp from Troy, and subsequently, her fun-filled evenings with friends on the Ale House Ladies’ Dart League as well as the summer soft ball team.
Amy loved traveling. Especially dear to her heart were times spent in Ogunquit, Maine, with the love of her life and her “rock”, Larry Mullins, who passed away 2 years ago. When not on the road, Amy could be found at a music venue, a movie, a play, or a festival, or at home, snuggling with her precious feline companions, Abigail and Louise.
During her career, Amy was an Assistant Vice President at Key Trust before moving on to pursue her passion as creator and owner/operator of “Amy’s Spice of Life”, a unique Cajun cuisine food truck which was a popular stop at the NYS Albany campus and various Capital District events.
After a very serious illness, Amy spent her recuperation time at Sunnyview Rehabilitation Hospital in Schenectady. In appreciation for the love and care she received there, Amy happily spent the last 21 years as a devoted and beloved volunteer at Sunnyview. This, she felt, was her life’s purpose.

Friends are invited to attend a graveside service at Elmwood Hill Cemetery, 51 Belle Avenue, Troy, NY, on Saturday November 14, 2020, at 1PM. Kindly wear masks and observe social distancing. In lieu of flowers a donation in Amy’s memory to Saratoga Hospice, your local food pantry, or your favorite charity would be welcomed.
