Our beautiful, spirited, spunky daughter Amanda Rose (Mandie), met Jesus face to face March 28, 2019 around 3:15pm.
She was home schooled and graduated in 3 years in 2004. She went to beauty school and was the first in her family not to be a beauty school dropout. She loved to color and cut hair but her favorite was doing nails. She despised pedicure due to her extreme dislike of feet. She rose up in Papa John’s Pizza to a General Manager of a store. She worked at Papa Johns for over 12 years. She gave Papa John’s her heart and soul.
She adored all animals except giraffes due to an incident when she was very young. In her adult lifetime she’s had: dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, a snake, tarantula, rats, mice, sugar gliders, frogs, axolotls, shrimp, and different species of fish.
She loved the outdoors, especially the ocean and the roar of sea lions. They were soothing to her. In fact, she was listening to the ocean when she passed.
She loved to party, hike, camp, and fish. She had a beautiful singing voice. She loved to dance, listen to music, cook, and garden. She was an artistic soul. She liked to draw. She drew a fairy on her bedroom door when she was a teen and had a wall designated just for her art. She also found a craft that she loved to do. It is called painting with diamonds.
She was Hell on the highway as her many speeding tickets can attest too.
She loved her family, pets, and especially her children.
She was a very strong willed person as is evident in the fact of how long she chose to remain with us.
We were blessed to have Mandie for 32 years. Fly high precious Angel. You will leave a huge hole in our hearts that only you can fill. Until we meet again…
She is preceded in death by her granddad, uncle, Uncle Terry, Grandma G, and Aunt Jeanne. She is survived by her father, mother, brothers and sister. By her four children: Arijana, Benjamin, Quentin, and Karra, and her loving fiancé Josh Daniel, who stayed by her side through it all.
