Amanda Chelese Wilson was born into this world with Dennis and Laura Wilson on May 19, 1985. Amanda left this world to be with her father and loved ones in Heaven on April 4, 2019 in Fayetteville, Arkansas at the age of 33.
Mandi was a true daddy's girl and when she tried out the first time for cheerleading her daddy took her to the tryouts and when they got home afterwards they both sighed and said she didn't make the team -- but soon laughed and cheered and she hollered she had made it ... We were so proud that day and happy for her! Amanda cheered from 5th grade into her 12th year.
Amanda excelled in school and graduated 4 months before her class with extra credits in case she decided to move on with her education. She received the Who's Who's of Oklahoma, The National service and leadership award along with many others that were always posted in the weekly paper.
Amanda enjoyed family times and holidays with her children as they grew up and would have balloons, cakes and big dinners for any occasion. You could find them on the creek banks splashing around and enjoying nature any time the weather allowed. She loved her country music and had the sweetest voice when singing.
So when you find yourself sitting at the creek banks,or walking in the woods -- let the breeze flow through your hair, turn some music on and think of Mandi in happier days and let the sun and nature warm your heart with good memories.
Music and the Bible were her church. Through all her last days she may have lost a little hope but she never lost faith.
Our family extends our thanks and heart felt gratitude to all who have shown her kindness and love. God bless you !!
