Amanda Deann Douglas went to be with the Lord on May 28, 2019 at the age of 49, after fighting an unrelenting battle with an aggressive form of breast cancer. Deann was born on December 15, 1969 in Springfield, Illinois to parents, Jo Verne (Turner) and Oscar E. Tisdale. She is survived by her parents, husband Charles; their two children, son, Lance (28) and his wife Hillary, and daughter, Danielle (20); brother David Tisdale and wife Melynda; brother Larry Tisdale and wife Toni; sister Elaine Ivey and husband Thomas; Mother & Father-In-law: Charles and Barbara Douglas Jr., Sisters-in-law: Kim Norman and Tammy Prater and nieces and nephews.

Above all else, Deann was a caregiver. She cherished her family and her children, putting them ahead of herself throughout her entire life. As a registered nurse, Deann cared for patients, during difficult times while working in pre- and post-surgery, and happier times, while working in labor/delivery and post-partum nursing. She was immensely generous with her time and energy and always gave more than she received. She was loved by everyone who knew her.

Despite moving regularly to follow her husband’s oilfield career, Deann always became vested in her community, making lasting friendships with her neighbors, and finding meaningful work, loving her patients and her coworkers. Spending time with friends and family brought her much happiness.

Her relationship with Jesus Christ was a source of strength and peace to her throughout life and during her final days. Although she will be missed immensely, her family and friends know that they will be reunited with her one day.

A visitation for Amanda will be held Friday, May 31, 2019 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Metcalf Funeral Directors, 1801 E White Oak Terrace, Conroe, Texas. A celebration of life will occur the following day at 10:00 AM. A graveside service will occur Saturday, June 1, 2019 at 4:00 PM at Mt. Hope Cemetery, Henderson, Texas where she will be laid to rest with other members of the family. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation or American Cancer Society in Deann’s honor.

Deann came into my life such a very short time ago but made such a God’s radiance glowed from within her. Her smile and laughter was gentle and her wit was quite sharp. She possessed so much wisdom and always shared it with kindness and finesse. She was a jewel. I am privileged to have met and known her as part of our extended family. Praying for all the family especially Hillary’s husband, Lance. To you Lance ...”There will never be a day in which the goodness and mercy of the Lord will not be immediately nearby.meaningful impact on it. “ Lean on him always.

On Behalf of my Wife Pam and I, we wish to extended our deepest sympathies to Charles and the family. Deann always lives in our memories as a wonderful caregiver and friend. Pam had several procedures at her center, and always looked forward to the visit and her expert care. Charles and I worked together at Smith Bits for many years, and I admired his expertise and ethics. A Godly man that always was there for Deann and his family, and will continue to uphold that forward.

A fighter to the end and proud matriarch of her family

God Bless the Douglas family, and be with them through these difficult days.

A sweeter cousin one could never hope to find! I will always treasure the memories of our youth, and family times together. My thoughts and prayers are with Charles, Uncle Oscar and Aunt Jo, and the rest of cousin Dee-Dee's family and friends during this difficult and sorrowful time. May the bright and cheerful memories of her personality be the only memories that remain, and may God bless and grant you peace and comfort, know that she is in His loving arms.
