Biography... Amanda was born on the 10th of November, 1966 in New Amsterdam, Berbice, Guyana. She was the second child of Michael and Margaret Matthews. Her parents immigrated to Canada in the late 60's. Amanda and her older sister Alliza followed in July of 1970. She lived in the K-W area the majority of her life. In 1972, her younger sister, Michelle, was born and this sparked her love for babies.
Amanda met and fell in love with Robert Robichaud and they married on July 9th,1989. After a very difficult delivery, Lucien was born. Amanda almost lost her life in this process. Yet she loved this child so much she had no regrets. She was a loyal wife and devoted mother to the end.
The meaning of the name “Amanda” is “fitted to be loved”. This name suited her well. Her demeanor was selfless, compassionate, enduring, humble and loving. Amanda has always had a special place in her heart for children and in turn they loved her unconditionally.
Amanda's faith was important to her. She may not have been to church as often as she would have liked, however she had a very strong relationship with her Savior.
Amanda is now resting awaiting her Savior's soon return.
