Abigail Mae Messersmith

August 17, 2005 — August 13, 2023

Abigail Mae Messersmith, 17, of Tunkhannock, passed away on Sunday, August 13, 2023, at Geisinger Community Medical Center, Scranton.

Abigail Mae Messersmith was born on August 17, 2005, in Wilkes-Barre, PA, to Donald L. Messersmith and Teri Fell.

Abby was the most beautiful girl with the largest personality in the smallest package. She was a student at Tunkhannock Area High School. She would have been entering her senior year in a few weeks. She was an artist who loved nature and animals of all kinds. She was best known for her ability to light up every room and to make everyone around her smile. Her laugh was infectious and matched her goofball sense of humor. She was the kind of friend who would be there when you needed her and was always up for an adventure. She loved with her whole heart. She will be missed daily by everyone who had the opportunity to meet her.

Abby is survived by her parents; her bonus mother, Amy Derby of Dallas; bonus father, Matt Karhnak and her siblings, Devin Messersmith and Charisma Fell; grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

The family will receive relatives and friends on Sunday, August 20, 2023, from 2PM to 6PM at the Nulton Kopcza Funeral Home 5749 SR 309, Monroe Twp. PA 18636
