Amanda Barr

October 22, 1979- May 3, 2007

Amanda Sue Murphy Barr (“Many”) was born October 22, 1979 and passed away May 3, 2007. She was an amazing field hockey and lacross player and was even an All American for them. She was married to the most wonderful man named Kevin. Kevin and Many were huge Bruce Springsteen fans traveling all around to see one of his shows. She always lived every day to the fullest and never wanted anyone to feel bad for what she was going through. She always had a camera in her hand taking pictures of her nieces and nephews and never missed their games. Many was the youngest of eight children. She was one of the strongest and most caring people I have ever known and she lived more life in her 27 years than most do in a lifetime. I could go on forever telling you how much she meant to us and how we have such a huge void without her but I know she is watching us and wanting us to live as she did, always seeing the good in everyone around her. Here is a quote from her husband on our site. “She never complained, ever! She faced everything with her beautiful smile intact.” Which I think really sums everything up.
