She enjoyed spending time with family and friends. All who had the pleasure of knowing her will always remember her magnificent smile, sparkling eyes, and incredibly kind and generous big heart. Amanda was extremely proud of her three brothers and had a significant influence on their lives and on everyone else she touched.

Markowitz, Jr. of Girard; her mother Julie Brown also of Girard; siblings Anthony V. Gagliardi of Girard; Robert “Robby” S.
