Mrs. Amy M. (Smith) Callahan, 53, of Milford MA died Thursday evening (April 20, 2023) at her residence after an illness. She was the beloved wife of John “J.J.” Callahan.
Amy was born in Leominster MA, the daughter of Edgar J. Smith and Carolyn (McIntire) Smith Brodmerkle. She was a graduate of Nashoba Regional High School, Class of 1987 and later received her associates degree from Becker College in 1991.
Amy was first employed at Adept Staffing located in Framingham MA where she worked as a recruiter. Following that she was employed for a number of years at EMC Corporation located in Hopkinton MA where she was involved in web publishing. Her department at EMC Corporation was eventually purchased by OpenText, where she worked until her illness as a marketing director.
Amy had been a resident of Milford MA since 2009, and prior to that had resided in Worcester MA. Because she had suffered from Alopecia for years, Amy was a member of the “Bald Girls Do Lunch” organization & support group. As a member of that organization she was active in crocheting hats for fellow sufferers of Alopecia and for young children. But Amy was best known as a devoted wife and mother.
Along with her beloved husband, John “J.J.” Callahan, she is survived by her 2 sons: Jack Callahan (19) and Owen Callahan (17) both of Milford MA; her father: Edgar J. Smith and his wife Jean of Dennis MA; her mother: Carolyn (McIntire) Smith Brodmerkle and her husband Robert Brodmerkle of Lancaster MA; her brother: Edward P. Smith and his fiancée Kerry Morrissey of Leominster MA; also several nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles & cousins.
