Mandy was a lover of all things; once she loved you, you knew it. She would protect you at all costs. Mandy was the true definition of a caretaker and that showed as she took care of her grandparents, parents, daughter, friends, and family when they needed her most. She was a loving mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. Mandy spent most of her time traveling watching her daughter, “Mack” play softball; sometimes embarrassing Mack just a tad yelling louder than most. She was always so proud of all the achievements Mackenzie had won, whether it be athletically or academically; Mack was truly her world. Mandy also loved catching a few rodeos a year to watch her two favorite little cowboys, Ellie (Ellison) and Clayton ride and compete. Mandy loved having her dad, Roger, over to watch the sports games. She loved spending time with family and friends and spending time at home with her dearest companion, Oliver. Authentic, generous, and unapologetically was who she was. She never ceased to make the people around her feel loved, safe, and belly-laugh.
Visitation will be from 5:00 to 7:00 P.M., Friday, October 21, 2022 at Westbrook Funeral Home in Hazen. A graveside service will be held Saturday, October 22, 2022 at Hamilton Cemetery.
