She really was always full of smiles and happiness. I still remember her and it fills me with pain. She truly was a great woman.


Amanda was a very caring and dependable individual. She was always ready to take charge of the day regardless of the circumstances with her smile. She will be greatly missed by her Driscoll’s family.


Amanda and I met at Simmons we were in the CNA program together and she was such a great friend and always ready to help . We were both involved with HOSA so we spent a lot of time together during that time . Amanda’s laugh was (CONTAGIOUS)I remember when she was pregnant with Novalee she was so happy and ready to be a mom. I’m so glad I got to know her , but so sad that we both were too busy to get back together and reminisce on the great times we had. I’m really at a lost for words because she was an amazing mother and I don’t understand why this had to happen. Rest peacefully , see ya soon .
