POLK, Amanda Lee (RPN)
Suddenly, at home, Amanda passed away in her sleep on Friday, January 22, 2016 at the age of 28 years. Cherished daughter of Cynthia (nee Honeywell) and York Polk. Amanda was predeceased by her infant brother Jason, and was the much loved big sister of Alexandra. Dear granddaughter of Allan and the late Helen Honeywell and Laurie Dignard and the late York Polk Sr. She will also be dearly missed by several aunts, uncles, cousins and close friends – especially Jay, Jordan, Kyle, Allyson and her canine companion Buddy. Though faced with many challenges in her all too short life, Amanda is remembered by how she met each one with determination and the strength to continue on, always trying to maintain a positive outlook and helping others.
