Amy Leigh Webeck

February 10, 2018

Age 34, of Carnegie, PA, formerly of Scenery Hill, PA, unexpectedly passed away on February 10, 2018, in her home. She was born on January 31, 1984, in Washington, PA, a daughter of Charmaine A. Miller and Mark J. Webeck, both of whom survive. Upon her brother, Jason M. Webeck (Coleen) of Eighty Four, PA, finding her in the sandbox at age 4, dressed for Easter services, shoveling handfuls of sand into her mouth, grinning wildly, it became apparent to all that a lovable hellion was among our midst. There followed reports over the years of Barbie dolls with hair chopped off, even missing their appendages. However none of these acts could be directly tied back to Amy or her accomplices, most notably, said older brother. Amy was a 2002 graduate of Canon McMillan High School. She was a fierce competitor, playing both basketball and softball throughout her life. Her pitching skills served her team well and struck fear into the hearts of her opponents. Her stink eye was legendary. She threw her last, most accurate pitch well into the early hours one morning at the Rhythm House. While she was quite proud of the velocity, it will be her older sister, Jenna L. Webeck, of Columbus, OH, who forever gets the credit for that final pitch, especially when crossing into Canada. After several attempts at various colleges and trade schools, mostly funded with other people's money, she decided the friendly environment and loyal customers of DeLallo's Italian Restaurant was the perfect fit for her. She could engage the crankiest of customers with her quick wit and bright smile. Her apple martinis were a drinkable work of art. If James Bond ever got light in the loafers, she would have been very rich with her drink being his new one. Amy's Animals. We would go broke trying to list every critter she had rescued, fed, chased down and possibly even, under cover of darkness and camouflaged up, took from wretched conditions. Didn't matter if it was domestic or wild, feathers, fur or scales, Amy had a place in her heart for all of God's creatures. Her current stable consisted of three cats, Ace Hood, Teeny Cat and Uno. While Teeny Cat and Uno represented normal household pets, Ace was the feline version of Al Qaeda. He ensured that every breakable item in her little house was indeed broken. Anything even close to edible, animate or inanimate, he ate. Destroyed at least two fish tanks and had Houdini like abilities for getting out of the house to unleash holy hell on her neighbors. Of all her critters, there was one that held a special place in Amy's life. Pumpkin dog, aka Mini Pig, the world's most expensive lemon Beagle who could hunt for nothing other than a comfy spot to snore from or a discarded food scrap under piles of debris. Amy and Mini had so much in common, from enduring years of pain to being subjected to multiple surgeries that did little to improve their conditions. They both had a love of the outdoors and it was a common sight to see Amy pushing her fat little dog around the streets of Carnegie in a stroller, with Pumpkin making sure they stopped at every store or business that had dog treats for her. Amy nursed that little dog back to health on many occasions. Her desire to be kind and giving extended beyond animals. The misfortunes and faults, the mistakes and regrets, two brain surgeries in hopes of curing her diagnosis of epilepsy in 2013, she at no point ignored people in her life that had less than her and in some cases, even much more than her. One did not even need to know Amy for her to be willing to share what little she had with you. Making sure you had enough for a Thanksgiving dinner, even if it meant her not having one. Buying a safe for a neighbor who had something stolen. It was easy to tell that Amy thought of you often and had a genuine interest in you as a person. Above all else, her compassion and grace, the gratitude she never failed to show when anybody made even the smallest gesture of kindness towards her, was a direct character trait that her mother had nurtured in Amy over the course of her life. Her mother, leading by example, showed Amy that giving to others was the most valuable trait in a child of God as God loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians, 9:7). In addition to her parents, and brother and sister, Amy is survived by both her grandmothers, Gloria J. Malesky of Bridgeville, PA and Phyllis S. Webeck of Washington, PA, formerly of Ellsworth, PA; two nieces, Sydney and Abby of Eighty Four, PA; many aunts and uncles. Deceased are both her grandfathers, Jack "Pap" Malesky and James "Grandy" Webeck. Friends received Wednesday, 6 - 8 p.m. at the SZAFRANSKI - EBERLEIN FUNERAL HOME, INC., 101 Third St., Carnegie where a funeral service will be held on Thursday at 11 a.m. Finally, Amy loved flowers. She faithfully tended to her little flower bed that was overflowing with beautiful day lilies and hydrangeas that kind, good-hearted neighbors had given her bulbs to plant. As much as she loved flowers, she loved animals more. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Amy's name to the organization that we rescued dogs through, C.R.I.C.A.A.T, PO Box 117, Washington, PA 15301.
