Amanda Sue Mallory of Dallas Texas, died unexpectedly in her sleep August 6, 2010. She was born in Marshall, TX on May 13, 1955 to Betty Jean Shewmake Mallory and Lonnie Zack Mallory. She was preceded in death by her parents and is survived by her beloved daughter Katherine Michelle Andereck of Dallas, two sisters and brothers-in-law: Linda and Rob Newcomer of Ada, OK and Melissa and Bill Bonnette of Franklin, VT, two nephews and three nieces and their spouses: Daniel and Sara Murphy of Houston, TX, Philip Newcomer of Ada Oklahoma, Autumn and Andy Walker of Perkinston, MS, Laura and Chad Gaither of Dallas TX and Megan and Charley Fallon of Phoenix, AZ. She also leaves behind her fiance, Curt Saxton of Dallas. Amanda graduated from University of Texas with a degree in accounting, went on to obtain her CPA certification and worked at the international accounting and consulting firm of Peat Marwick Mitchell (now KPMG Peat Marwick) in the Dallas, before transferring to the New Orleans office where she attained the position of manager. Amanda returned to Dallas where she became the controller of Rosewood Resources, and ended her corporate career as Chief Financial Officer of Rosewood Corporation.

She was also an officer and board member of the Down Syndrome Guild of Dallas for a number of its formative years. She formed Brownie Scout troop #862 where she served first as a Brownie Scout leader, then Girl Scout leader and in the later years a supporter and mentor of the many girls in this troop who went on to earn the Silver and Gold Awards. Her love of music was expressed in forming the first youth choir at Cedar Shores Baptist Church on Lake Whitney, where she also taught VBS. She continued her volunteer work these past several years with Meals on Wheels. Amanda loved music, cooking and reading, but most of all her daughter Kate. She had recently returned from proudly watching Kate graduate from a vocational program in Office Skills from University of Eastern New Mexico in Roswell.
