Amanda Carol Harrison Ingle


Amanda Carol Harrison Ingle, an extraordinary angel prematurely earned her wings on September 22, 2015.  She lived in Hazen, Arkansas.  Mandi was born June 4, 1981 in Little Rock, Arkansas to Joe Lynn and Dana Strohl Harrison Prince.  Their family grew in 1984 when Mandi’s little sister Samantha Jo “Sam” was born.  Mandi was 34 years old when our Lord took her to her home.  She made her heavenly flight September 22, 2015.  Being a mother was always Mandi’s dream and Ross Ingle age 10 and Jaylee Ingle age 6 of Hazen made that dream come true.  She was dedicated parent and a great friend to all.

In addition to her children, she is survived by her ex-husband, Andy Ingle of Hazen; her mother, Dana Strohl Prince and husband, Mike of De Valls Bluff; her father, Joe Lynn Harrison and wife, Darlene of Heber Springs; her sister, Samantha Harrison and son, Bryan of De Valls Bluff; her grandparents, Henry and Gloria Strohl of De Valls Bluff and Joseph and Judy Harrison of Heber Springs; a very special aunt and uncle, Judy “Sissy” and Keith Gladish of De Valls Bluff; her great grandmother, Daisy Hall of Biscoe and a host of aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, and friends.

Mandi was a child of God and a member of Palestine Baptist Church in Quitman.  Mandi was a people person.  Her trademark smile and bubbly personality made her a friend to everyone she met.  Her life long best friend, Candace Mertens Taylor, was a companion during difficult days with health issues.  Mandi referred to Candace’s sons, Cutler and Chance Taylor as her “first babies”.

Mandi’s school days were spent at De Valls Bluff and she was proud to be a Scrapper.  She graduated in 1999 excelling in agricultural education.  She served as FFA President her senior year.  She earned her associate degree at ASU Beebe in 2000.  She had a beautiful voice and sang with her sister, Sam and grandfather, Joseph Harrison at church and many public events.

Say not in grief “she is no more”, but live in thankfulness that “she was”.  She will live forever in our heats.

Funeral services will be 10:00 A.M. Friday, September 25, 2015 at Calvary Baptist Church in Hazen.  Visitation will be from 5:00 to 8:00 P.M., Thursday, September 24, 2015 at Westbrook Funeral Home in Hazen.  Burial will be in the Hazen Cemtery.

In lieu of flowers, you may honor her memory with a donation to “Mandi Harrison Memorial Fund” at Farmers and Merchants Bank or a charity of your choice.

    Song in Methodist Hymnal:

    But do not lose them from our hearts.”
