Strong willed and opinionated,full of courage and strength. Amanda was hard to stop. She would try to get one over on all of us. The self-proclaimed Diva was convinced one day she’d be a playboy Bunny. As a child she & her cousins John & Kristina organized the “Washington Street Band”, playing inflatable instruments singing “Water Water everywhere you gonna get wet”. Amanda was the acting president of her informal gardening club, even though she couldn’t seem to grow anything. Amanda enjoyed hunting, fishing and riding dirt bikes.However she was a high maintenance redneck. When she bagged her 1st eight pointer and doe, her hair and makeup were perfect. The Jersey girl loved the shore and sported a perpetual tan. Regardless of how ill Amanda may have been, she lived her life without fear and enjoyed proving everyone wrong. Those who knew Amanda know she truly is and always will be our “Invincible Princess”
