Amanda Hall, 32, dies in Oregon

Special to the DailyAmanda Hall

Words cannot adequately describe the force of nature that was Amanda Rose Hall. She was, and always will be, a devoted and loving friend and sister to many. Perfect and imperfect at the same time Amanda lived life like she snowboarded ” fast and hard.

Amanda died May 9 at her home in Lebanon, Ore. She was 32.

Amanda was born April 10, 1977, in Grand Island, Neb. to Edward and Kay (Crook) Hall. Survivors include her mother of Sheridan, Ore. and two brothers, Shane Hall of Keizer, Ore., and Doug Christman of Topeka, Kan. She will always be cherished by her gargantuan (she liked big words) extended family of friends in Fort Collins and Summit County.

Raised in Nebraska, Amanda moved to Fort Collins just out of high school and then blew into Summit County like the gale force winds of a January storm. Jack of all trades and master of none, Amanda relished the unexpected and cherished her triangularity. She collected people and created everlasting bonds that even death can’t break. She loved working with her hands and surprised no one when she declared a civil engineering major with the aim of becoming a professional planet hugger. Happiest with her iPod and snowboard on a cold mountain morning, this was her church; her sanctuary.

As she once wrote, “Hopefully there is a restaurant at the end of the galaxy, and maybe someday we can all meet up and have a cup of coffee.” To this we raise our coffee mugs and say, “Save us a seat and have a cup waiting.”

A gathering of family and friends will be held at the Goat Soup and Whiskey at 5 p.m. Saturday.
