Amanda Kay Dye

March 21, 1989June 6, 2020

A beloved daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, and friend, Amanda Kay Dye, of Olathe, Kansas left this world unexpectedly, at 31, on June 6, 2020. Amanda was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Sharon Dye and Robert Dye on March 21, 1989. She moved to Olathe, Kansas at a young age and excelled in academics and athletics. She was an exceptional volleyball player and loved her time on the Mavs team. She graduated from Olathe North High School in 2007 where she made many friends. She developed an interest in technology and completed a degree in Computer Security & Networking from Pittsburgh State University in 2013. After graduation she worked in the Healthcare IT field at multiple Kansas City companies. Her heart for adventure took her to travel the US for work and personal. She was funny, outgoing and spontaneous, but she was also introverted and introspective. She was always finding new neighborhoods to explore and lived downtown, midtown, and on the Country Club Plaza. Amanda was extremely caring and was frequently the new owner of any pet in need. She rescued her dog Buttons and he was an expected guest at friends and family’s homes and the center of many adorable Instagram posts. Wherever Amanda went, Buttons came too. Amanda loved music and would frequently listen to music and journal her thoughts. Amanda enjoyed cooking and introducing new food to her family. She felt the world more deeply than most and she frequently shared her struggles with anxiety. We will always remember her infectious smile, gorgeous red hair and caring personality. Her presence in our lives will be sorely missed. When you think of Amanda, celebrate the good memories you have of her. Remember that life is fragile and short and should be lived to the fullest. Amanda is survived by her mother, Sharon Dye, father, Robert Dye, Brother Travis Dye, Brother Eric Geis, sister in law Jennifer Geis, nieces Lacey Geis and Bexley Geis, and her precious dog Buttons. A small family service will be held privately due to COVID-19. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America.
