Obituary

Amy (Szana) Stockman of New Smyrna Beach, FL died on May 10, 2022. Amy was 84 years old. Amy was born in Toledo, OH on Valentine’s Day 1939 to George and Margaret Szana. Amy’s parents emigrated from Europe coming over from Hungary in the early 1900s and passing through Ellis Island New York. This made Amy a very proud first generation American.  Born into a devout Seventh-day Adventist family, like her siblings, Amy attended and graduated Mount Vernon Academy (MVA) in Mt. Vernon, OH in 1957. Shortly after graduation, Amy met and married Ralph “Bud” Stockman. Growing up, Amy loved anything and everything Hollywood especially anything with Elizabeth Taylor. After watching Elizabeth Taylor in the movie “Butterfield 8”, Amy’s husband purchased a red convertible Sunbeam Alpine identical to the car in the movie. With every New Year’s Day spent watching the Pasadena Rose Bowl Parade in California, Amy and Bud decided to make the road trip in their new Sunbeam taking Route 66 to Los Angeles where Amy began her long career in the Banking profession. Amy’s favorite employer where she had the most fun and excitement was at Home Savings of America on Wilshire Blvd just down the street from Beverly Hills. The clientele were the who’s who of Hollywood during the 60s and early 70s. Having been employed with other major banks working in positions anywhere from escrow to training new purchasers with Countywide Home Loans in Simi Valley, after 44 years Amy retired to Florida to be near her sister and dear lifelong friends and fellow divers Mel and Deo Fisher of Key West. Amy will be remembered for her unfaltering belief in the American Constitution along with all of the freedom it gives, her hilarious and contagious laugh that was so uniquely Amy, and of course, the way in which she always cared for and protected all species of animals even insects much to her mother’s chagrin. Amy could never pass up a chance to hold a grasshopper or dragonfly especially to scare her kids in all silliness.
 
Amy is survived by her children Lynn Stockman and Ken Stockman as well as many cousins, nieces, and nephews. Amy is preceded in death by her father George Szana and mother Margaret (Piriczky) Szana; her brother Dr. Robert J. Szana of Waterville, OH; her sister Lillian Duska of Edgewater, FL. The family wishes to personally thank Baldwin Brothers for their guidance and support during this unbelievably hard time. As a huge animal lover, any donations in Amy’s name may be sent to the Halifax Humane Society in Daytona Beach, FL.

    I worked with Amy at People Federal Savings in Inglewood, Ca. I was only 18,yrs. old. She was 26yrs. Amy trained me in escrow Sept. I never forgot how kind & gentle she was to me. I so admired her. Her & Bud were devoted fans of Johnny Mathis. We kept in touch, a few years after I left Peoples Feredal, then she told me she was going to Home Savings, I began my family & we lost touch. I never forgot her friendship❤️
