Family meant everything to Mandy. She eagerly looked forward to holidays and gatherings, checking in daily to find out who would be picking her up and what time. Mandy had a big heart for her family.

Mandy made Hope Haven her home for seventeen years. She found joy in going to the dances, community outings, and working at the hospital during her time there. She made lasting friendships there and her presence will be deeply missed.

Mandy enjoyed competing in Special Olympics, going to Camp Courageous, playing Uno, and watching Wheel of Fortune, and she shared that joy with those around her. One of her favorite traditions was celebrating her birthday at Happy Joe’s. She enjoyed the company of friends and family during these special moments.

Mandy had a special way of connecting with people and was everyone’s biggest cheerleader. Everywhere she went, she would strike up friendly conversations and put a smile on their face. She truly never met a stranger. If she met you once, you were instantly a friend forever.
