Amanda obtained her master’s degree in school counseling, and she used that knowledge, along with her genuine care and concern for others, to make an impact on those around her. She was an amazing teacher, her nurturing spirit and love for others allowed her to not only teach, but also to touch lives in a special way. Amanda was a member at Parkview Baptist Church, where she was actively involved in various programs. Her love for the Lord, her smile and the special way she interacted with others will be remembered dearly. Most importantly, Amanda will be remembered as a loving daughter, wife and mother.
She is survived by her husband, Jeffrey Hassell of the home; sons, Parker James Hassell and Grady Stuart Hassell, both of the home; and parents, Wilma R. Johnson and James Edwin Johnson, both of Newport.
