Amanda Black Obituary, Death – The Lord beckoned Amanda Black to come home to be with him. Amanda was devoted to serving the Lord Jesus and His church because of her love for him. She was a thoughtful and loyal friend to each and every one of us. It is impossible to put into words how much of an impact she will have. On January 14, 1977, Amanda was brought into this world in Columbus, Indiana. She relocated to Georgia when she was 15 years old, having spent her childhood in the suburbs of Chicago. She received high honors during her graduation from Cartersville High School.
She received a Bachelor of Science degree with a concentration in Communications and Religion from Hope College, which is located in Holland, Michigan. She then earned a Masters of Theological Studies from Calvin Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She spent the previous twenty years of her life in the Holland, Michigan, area before moving back to Georgia. Thirteen of her professional years were spent at Group Tour Media.
Amanda is survived by her parents, Douglas Edward Black and Loretta Sue (McKinney) Black, as well as her uncle Greg Black (Aunt Pam), aunt Linda Elwell (Uncle Jim), cousins Amber, Adam, and James Jenks, and Andy, Lora, Emmitt, and Ellie Black. Her grandparents were Douglas Edward Black and Loretta Sue (McKinney). Her lifelong friends April and Robert Lanham, Tina Cooper, and Candy Mansfield will feel a void in their lives without her presence. Her cherished pets, Scottie and Callie, stayed behind with her parents so they could continue to care for them.
On Saturday, September 3rd at 2:00 p.m., we will be holding a celebration of Amanda’s life. The funeral will be place at Grace Church PCA in Canton, which can be found at 1160 Butterworth Rd., Canton, Georgia 30114.
