From the very beginning, Amanda had a smile that could light up the room. She lived every moment to the full, and every day with enthusiasm. Her friends and family will forever remember her bubbly personality, her thirst for life and her loyalty toward those she loved. An accomplished athlete through many years of volleyball and softball, a gifted artist, and an avid nature photographer, Amanda balanced her gifts and talents with a keen sense of fair play, a heart and actions that always looked out for the “little guy”, and a gentleness that touched us all.
Amanda leaves behind her parents Muriel and David Horton, her sisters Julie and Stacey Horton, Grandmother Verna Polson, Aunt Nickie Polson and David Smith, Fiona, and her many valued friends.
No less touched by their loss are Amanda’s relatives from out of town: grandmother Ethel Horton, Uncle Douglas Horton and Dorothy Rodes; Aunt Shirley Reynolds, Jennifer (Drew), Joseph, and Kathryn; Uncle Stephen and Stacey Horton, Matthew, Tyler (Amy), David (Janine) and Alexandra; Aunt Rebecca and Mark Scheckler, Timothy, Carissa, Jonathan, Stephanie, and Jennifer.
Family and friends will celebrate Amanda’s life on Saturday July 1st, 11:00 a.m., at Campbell River Baptist Church, 260 South Dogwood Street. Guests are invited to dress in cheerfully-coloured attire. Amanda would have wanted it that way.
Viewing will be from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., Friday June 30th at the church.
The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations designated in Amanda’s honor be made to School District No. 72 (earmarked for a Memorial Bursary), or to the Camp Homewood Bursary Fund.
