Amanda was diagnosed with Common Variable Immunodeficiency as a child. Her CVID resulted in a brain abscess, renal failure and many other medical problems throughout her life. She battled CVID, but never lost her smile or will to live and desire to make someone else’s day better. She would light up a room, made many friends at the dialysis center and was always a ray of sunshine in another’s day. Friends came to see her smile to brighten their day, often bringing her little presents to brighten her day. She loved her family, friends, and her dogs, and made her life as full as possible. She was an inspiration to all.

She was predeceased by her grandparents, James and Veda Ross and Eugene and Maxine Gordon.

In addition to her parents, Gary and Connie Ross, she is survived by two brothers, Gary D. (Heidi) Ross Jr. of McKinney, Texas and Mark D. (Karen) Ross of Independence, Kentucky; three nieces, Savannah Ross, Jessica Ross, Catherine Ross; a nephew, Cameron Ross; and her special friend, Darren Linville.
