Amanda passed away on Friday, January 6, 2023. She was born on her September 29, 1967 in Jasper, Texas to her parents Sharon and Roddy Haley. Amanda was welcomed by her older brother Clint. After Amanda was born, they were blessed with her wonderful little brother, Ryan.
She graduated from Pine Tree High School in 1986 and attended Abilene Christian College.
Amanda was an imaginative, energetic and fun kid. She had naturally curly hair and an infectious smile, which Amanda never complained about as her health took a turn for the worse after her recent brain surgery.
One of Amanda’s greatest loves was her dog. She never knew a time in her life without her dog. Amanda loves animals and she grew up surrounded by different breeds of dogs. She first inherited her rat terrier from her mother in 1991 and she fell in love with the breed. Amanda started training and showing dogs and she founded her rat terrier in the Colorado (Co-Hills) Hills. Since 2000 she has participated in her AKC, UKC and NADAC agility competitions.
