It is with broken hearts we announce the unexpected passing of Amanda Crystal Dawn McNeil, age 41, of Douglas, NB, formerly of Springhill, NS.  Amanda passed away at the Dr. Georges L. Dumont Hospital after a short battle with Cancer.

Born in Springhill, NS, she was a daughter of Ronald (Shirley) Martin of Salisbury and Lorna (Rupert) Schurman of Rodney.

Amanda was an amazing teacher at the Harold Peterson Middle School in Oromocto, NB, encouraging her pupils to enjoy learning through engagement and interaction.  A very kind hearted person, she went above and beyond by making sure her students, whom were all remembered by name, were comfortable and had what they needed.  She loved dressing up, whether a special occasion, or just for fun.  Her love of animals was so strong, she eventually made the decision to become a vegetarian.  She was generous to a fault; loved her friends and family, and loved to socialize.

In addition to her parents she will be dearly missed by her husband Lucas of Douglas, NB; step daughters Ally and Madison McNeil; sisters Beverly (Jay) Deuitch, Forest Grove, Oregon; Melanie (Zak Ripley) Martin, Springhill; step-siblings Angela, Sheldon, and Justin, as well as special nieces and nephews Ellie, Penelope, and Oliver, as well as many other nieces and nephews that she truly adored.

She recently lost her special grandmother Elizabeth Martin as well as her dogs Izzy and Thor. 

Arrangements have been entrusted into the care of A H Brown Funeral Home, 5 McFarlane St., Springhill, NS (902-597-2361) where an Afternoon of Remembrance will be held on Monday, November 7, 2022 from 2 to 4 pm with special words shared at 2:30 pm.  Burial will take place in the Rodney Cemetery.

Donations in memory of Amanda may be made to your local animal shelter.
