Amanda was a hard worker, generous, and had a passionate heart of helping others in their time of need without judgement. She enjoyed spending time with her family and she helped in raising her grandchildren and great- grandchildren. Her favorite pastime was going to garage sales, calligraphy, listening to Gospel music, and reading her Bible.
Her life will be forever cherished by her loving children, Charlene, Tomasina, Jeanine and Thomas. She is survived by her step-children Tracey Cook and Fabian Carter; sister, Adell Caddle; brothers, Sandy Reed and Paul Jordan; several grandchildren, great-grandchildren, godchildren, nieces, nephews and friends.

So saddened by the news of my Aunt Amanda's passing. She was a favorite aunt when I was growing up in Monroe, Ml. We lost touch as I moved away and she did too. She will forever remain in my heart. Love, prayers and condolences to all of the family.

Amanda was a classmate and neighbor of mine from elementary through high school. I had not seen her until she attended Candace s fathers funeral last year. I was so happy and blessed to see and talk to her. Amanda said Monroe would always be home and smiled a great even though she had been away fifty-one years.
Children, grans and great grans. be blessed and allow the Lord to comfort you.
