Amy Rebecca Vanasdalan

Amy Rebecca Vanasdalan, 55, of South Middleton Township, passed away on Saturday, February 12, 2022, at her home. She was born December 11, 1966, in Carlisle, PA to the late Charles W. and Ruth M. (Koontz) Vanasdalan.


Amy graduated from Boiling Springs High School in 1984, then proceeded to earn a bachelor’s degree from Shippensburg University in 1987. She will be remembered as a treasured coworker from her time as a manager at Wendy’s restaurant, to her time at Penske Logistics, through to her most recent employment as a transportation manager and operations manager at JB Hunt. Amy will also be remembered as a good friend; a confidant; a science fiction nerd; and a strong, independent, and loving mother.


She is survived by her daughter, Maya Brown, of Pittsburgh, PA; two sisters, Joan L. Vanasdalan of Gaithersburg, MD, and Sheri L. Hosterman, of Dillsburg, PA; a brother Charles W. Jr. of South Middleton Township; and many beloved nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her sister, Sue A. Deitch.

I knew Amy in middle school and high school. She was the supportive person behind the scenes, always ready to help, never wanting the spotlight. She had musical gifts in particular and played piano for the high school chorus as well as being in band and stage band. We re-connected through Facebook in time for me to see her beautiful go off to success at Carnegie Mellon. I am so sorry that she was taken away from Maya and the world so soon.

My deepest sympathies are with you and your family. I am lucky to have had the privilege of knowing and working with Amy. Amy was an exceptional mentor. The value she added to my career with her inspirational guidance is priceless. In a very challenging environment, Amy provided her team direction, vision, patience, reliability, and respect. I will cherish the memories of working with her.

Amy was a strong and devoted mother. She was incredibly proud of her daughter, Maya. She expressed this often and would light up when talking about her.
