Amanda Ann Alvarez

November 12, 1979March 3, 2018

“Our beloved daughter Amanda Ann Alvarez, 38, was taken from us so young, on March 3, 2018. She is preceded in death by her grandparents: Richard and Edilia Alvarez, Tia Linda Jett, Tio Richard Alvarez Jr., and Tio Arnold Mares. She is survived by her parents: Carlos and Norma Alvarez, and Grace Gardea; her three children: Brittney Stewart, Fabian Hernandez Jr., and Amaris Gonzalez; her sisters: Vanessa A., Monique R., Lisa V., and Angela M.; her brothers: Carlos (Kojak) Jr., Anthony A., Gilbert R., and Esteban V.; her sister-in-law Michelle G. and brother-in-law Richard N. Many aunts and uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. Amanda was a free spirit with many friends. She would do things even for people she did not know; always helping them in anyway she could. She always talked about her nephews, Ricky, Andrew and Angel, and nieces Delicia and Meleena. There was never a day she didn't think or do for her kids or go out of her way to get what they needed or wanted; that was her love of a mother. She spoke highly of her friend Sabrina Sanchez who was always there for her like a sister. A great friend of hers, Bruce Hodges, helped her out in so many ways by getting her back into church and giving her odd jobs to help her out. Amanda was a strong young woman, a hard worker, a survivor, and very smart. She had set so many goals and accomplished a lot in life. She may not have been rich but she was pure at heart and she always spoke her mind. She struggled but she never gave up. Amanda was loved by all and will be deeply missed. She is at peace now.”
