Our beloved and beautiful daughter, Amanda Jeannine Montgomery, was thoughtlessly taken from this world on December 9th 2022. She was our precious gift for 42 amazing years.
Born in Randolph and raised in Holbrook, Massachusetts she made an undeniable impact on everyone she met. As a little girl she loved horses and all animals. She would go on to take horse riding as a true passion, never being able to realize her dream of owning a horse farm. As she grew up, Amanda explored and loved camping, nature, hiking, friends and family. She would own her own motorcycle, although I am not sure she ever got it running, traveled Europe, lived all over the south shore and owned a menagerie of animals. College brought new and exciting opportunities to her, she was just as smart as she was beautiful. Graduating from Bridgewater State University, she would also go on to earn two master's degrees. She went on to hold several different jobs trying to understand where her passions for professional servitude would compliment her personal beliefs. Amanda never truly cared about material things, she wanted to have happiness and experiences far more than she wanted to have the latest fashion. She would echo this at Christmas time and birthdays, “lets have experiences over presents this year”.
In 2010, Amanda moved to Texas, it was a long way from the northeast where she grew up and very different from the “Boston” way of things. Texas was different, it allowed her to be herself, Texas allowed her to grow as a person. She was blessed with two amazing children while living in Texas, Andrew and Natasha. She made friends that were more like family, friends that in some way were her family. One thing she loved more than the life she built in Texas was the new teaching position she was offered at the Odyssey Academy. She was a science teacher, and she loved doing it. Amanda emulated Ms Frizzle from ‘The Magic School Bus’ and could often be heard saying to her students “Take chances, make mistakes, and get messy!” She had finally found a job that wasn't a job for her at all, it was that passion she had been searching for, she loved those kids almost as much as she loved her own.
Amanda was born in MA, raised in MA, and reborn in TX. She now has returned to MA once more, the exception this time; we are not able to hug her, we are not able to hear her laugh; She will remain with us and we will hold her close. We will hold her as tight as we can in our mind and our hearts. She looks down from heaven on her Father and Mother, Robert and Sharon Montgomery of Randolph. Like she has always done, she will look after her brother and his family, Rob and Ashley Montgomery of Plympton. She will visit all of her cousins, Aunts and Uncles. She will remain in the hearts and minds of her friends and family, in Massachusetts and Texas. I only ask that you do the same with the ones you love, that are still here to hold. Listen to them and more importantly listen to the words they are not saying. Our beloved daughter was thoughtlessly taken from us but what she leaves behind will eternally remain.
If you knew Amanda at any point in her amazing life, we ask you to share these experiences with her friends and family at the Elks Lodge in Randolph, MA (21 School St) for a celebration of her life. To be held on January 27, 2023 6pm - 10pm. The family asks instead of flowers, to
