Celebrating the life of Amanda Derrington

Amanda was born in Crewe on September 4th 1955 to Kenneth Crane, who died in 1968, and Pamela, née Hill, who died in 2013.

Amanda was special to different people in different ways and in her time she played many parts. Her roles included:- biker, zoo-keeper, manager of a rock band, big sister, wife, mother, dog-breeder, buddhist, university teacher, neuroscientist, company director, good neighbour and supercool gran. The picture shows her in her role as supercool gran.

In each of her roles Amanda won friends and admirers. Acknowledging the range and diversity of her achievements helps to shift from mourning her death to celebrating her life.

Amanda died peacefully at St Columba's Hospice in Edinburgh on July 4th 2020 after being ill with cancer for 6 months. She is survived by her brother, Jon, her son, Kris, her two grandchildren, Charlie and Olivia, and her husband, Andrew.
