Amanda was a lifelong resident of Fort White. She was first and foremost a wife and mother. She was a dedicated aunt and surrogate mother to countless youth, many of whom called her “Aunt Mom”. Amanda was a dedicated servant of the Lord serving at First Baptist Church in High Springs in numerous capacities but almost always with youth. Amanda had a heart for the people of Haiti. She participated in and lead numerous mission trips to the town of Pignon, Haiti and had plans to return there this summer to work with Triumph Community Ministries. She was a dedicated teacher. Amanda began her teaching career at Eastside Elementary and later taught at Fort White Elementary and Fort White High School. During her tenure she touched countless lives in the Columbia County School System both inside and outside the classroom. Even in death Amanda impacted the lives of others by choosing to offer the hope of continued life through the gift of organ donation. She was loved immensely by her family, friends and community and will be missed.
