Obituary of Larissa M. Suparmanto

Larissa Marie Suparmanto, 34, of Delmar passed away suddenly on January 20th, 2020 at home. She was born in Albany, NY on August 16th, 1985 to Armanto and Deborah Suparmanto. She was a graduate of Bethlehem Central High School. Larissa began her undergraduate studies of Biology at Carnegie Mellon University, then continued her studies to earn a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences from the University at Albany. Her love of research expanded at the College of Nano Science where she graduated with a Master of Science in Nanoscale Sciences. She was co-author of 6 different peer reviewed scientific articles. Larissa had an amazing breadth of knowledge about so many subjects and everything was interesting to her. She had a true love for books and acquired a vast collection over the years. She also loved to write, draw, and paint. Working as a volunteer at the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society strengthened her love of animals. She spent many hours with her beloved golden, Maggie and her two cats Mokey and Beans, who were never far from her side. Her love of kayaking the rivers and lakes around Albany with family, friends, and Maggie brought her great joy. She studied piano, violin, and recently started to learn how to play guitar. In her spare time, Larissa loved to cook with her family and attended the Culinary Institute of America broadening her knowledge and training of culinary arts. Larissa’s great love of traveling lead her to new places and experiences, most recently cruising to the Panama Canal with her family and zip lining in Costa Rica. She has touched so many lives with her thoughtfulness, kindness, warm smiles, and amazing hugs. Larissa’s footprints will be forever etched on our hearts. She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Beatrice and Arthur Wallace, Tukiyem and Tukimin Wignyowiyarj, and her uncle Arthur Wallace Jr. Larissa is survived by her parents, Armanto and Deborah Suparmanto of Delmar, NY.
