Amanda Kaye Kirkland-Carey

November 26, 1988 ~ February 12, 2019 (age 30)

Amanda Kaye Kirkland-Carey, 30, went to be with the Lord on February 12, 2019. 

Amanda was born on November 26, 1988 in Fort Worth, Texas to Donna (Damron) and Rodney Kirkland. Amanda graduated from Alvarado High School in 2007. She married Timothy Carey on February 22, 2014 and was the proud Mother of Cassandra, Jonathan and Thomas. She was a member of the Methodist Church in Alvarado. She enjoyed being a stay-at-home mother to her youngest son. She also loved cosmetology and being the family stylist to everyone.

Amanda was first a daughter, then a sister, a friend, a wife. A loving, independent, strong-willed woman. Most of all though, she was a mother. She mothered her parents, her siblings, her husband even. She loved deeply and fiercely with all of her heart to everyone. Amanda was a mother to her three beautiful children who she loved more than anything or anyone. 

2 Kings 4:30

Then the mother of the child said, "As the Lord lives and as you yourself live, I will not leave you."


Visitation will be held at the Clayton Kay Vaughan Funeral Home on Friday, February 15, 2019 from 6-8 pm. A Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, February 16, 2019 at 11 am at the First United Methodist Church in Alvarado.
