Amy Bernadette Messina, “Mimi” + “Angel Amy” , 56, Of Saint Petersburg, was born November 1st, 1964, though we are saddened to acknowledge her spirit had suddenly passed Thursday, November 12th, 2020, at Northside Hospital in Saint Petersburg, Florida. Preceded in passing by her parents Leo + Luella Thorbecke, her daughter-in-law Nicole Calderaro Messina and her two sister-in-laws, Caroline Messina & Chrystyna Thorbecke. Amy was born in Sacramento, California though she had the great pleasure of being raised in Long Island, New York. Amy quickly became a thoroughbred New Yorker, at the youthful age of 4, her personality & newfound accent coinciding, all-encompassing the lively spirit of where her most fond childhood memories were established. Leading into her adolescence, Amy met and eventually married her high-school sweetheart, where they then relocated to The Beautiful Sunshine State. Amy & Anthony Messina had 3 amazing children together which she has all too soon left behind; Anthony Jr, Daniella Marie and Dominic Francis. Amy’s most proud accomplishment in her short time here with us was (undoubtedly) her 3 incredible grandchildren; Ezra Oliver, Lilyana Grace and Lyla Hope. Amy was the youngest of 6 siblings, graciously leaving behind her sisters Lyn, Jan, Kay, Kim and brother, Leo. One of Amy’s most treasured bonds was with her first best-friend Trina & it remained an unbreakable one for 52 years strong. Amy was loved by and has left behind more family than we can begin to muster, including her former husband, Anthony Messina Sr. Amy’s many precious nieces, nephews, extended family, friends-turned-family and all of her children’s nearest friends that she guided over the years will be left behind with great memories of her. Amy was a hospitality enthusiast, though she had a degree in business, her mission in life was to serve as many people as she could. She enjoyed small talk and humble brags about her family & her friends. If you know her then you should know she loved you greatly. Her nickname, Angel Amy, is a comfort to all left behind as we know she will be watching over us all from above, waiting patiently to greet us with open wings.
