We are very sad to have to convey the news that Amy Ryan-Day passed away on May 14th, 2021. We remember Amy as an early recipient of the GFA Scholarship herself when she attended the University of Vermont. Amy attended many GFA meetings with her mother (Barbara Ryan) and grandmother (Barbara Michie) and served as the GFA Scholarship Committee chair for many years. She always enjoyed finding challenging essay questions and creative assignments to pose to the applicants each year.
In addition to her numerous contributions to the GFA, Amy was a loving mother, daughter, sister and friend. She is survived by her son, Michael Day, her parents, Barbara Ryan and Dr. Bernard Ryan, and two sisters, Diana Berenter and Sarah Ryan.
