7 August, 1927 – 16 February, 2021
Amanda Fernandez Collazos passed away on Tuesday, February 16, 2021, at the age of 93. Amanda was born in Tumaco, Colombia in 1927. She came to the United States in 1962 and lived in New York and then Florida. Amanda was a strong, vibrant, funny, and elegant woman. She had a joy for life and a sense of humor that even the traumatic brain injury she suffered in 1998 could not extinguish. Amanda never took life too seriously and always looked for the light, even in the darkest moments.
Amanda is survived by her sister Emperatriz Fernandez; four children: Mario Moreno, Franco Moreno, Daniel Moreno, and Alexis Moreno; nine grandchildren; several great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her grandson, Fernando Moreno.
A service to celebrate Amanda's life will be held at a later date.

I remember doña Amanda as a beautiful sophisticated lady with a quiet, respectful demeanor. I was very young but I also remember the beautiful friendship she had with our parents. May God bless you! I know you are in heaven talking to Dad and telling great stories.
