Born in Richboro, Penn., on August 25, 1913, Amanda was the daughter of John F. and Louise Menold Shetzline. She graduated with the Richboro High School class of 1930 and furthered her education with a number of business courses.

While living in Pennsylvania, Amanda was a bookkeeper. She was also a newspaper carrier for many years at her retirement center, Gloria Dei Farms, in Hatboro, Penn., and was twice awarded the Senior Citizen Carrier of the year.

She loved crafts and kept her fingers busy: knitting, crocheting and sewing. She enjoyed sewing costumes for her daughter when she was a child and had served as a Girl Scout leader. Amanda was very fond of cats, flower gardening and travel.

She attended the Grace Fellowship Church in Bremen, Ind., and while still living in Penn., was active as a library volunteer with the Addisville Reformed Church in Richboro.
