Amanda Nicole Robertson
Sherman - Amanda Nicole Robertson, beloved daughter of Kittie Salisbury went to heaven on August 16, 2021. She was born July 18, 1979, in Sherman Texas to parents Rick & Kittie Robertson. Amanda "Mandy" grew up in Sherman and graduated from Sherman High School and University of North Texas in Denton with a bachelor of social work degree. Amanda had a strong faith in God and lived life as a caring Christian woman. Amanda worked tirelessly and passionately to help children for over 10 years with the state of Texas as she loved and cared about all children and people in general. After her time with the state she went on to work in two skilled nursing facilities where she cared deeply for the patients, their families; and her coworkers. Often she would step in to help patients or clients in need or make sure they had a Christmas present. Her last job was with Texoma Community Center where she continued to help others with a caring heart and met some of the best coworkers and friends. Amanda was a life member of the VFW Ladies Auxiliary 2772 in Sherman. Both of her grandfathers were veterans as well as her bonus dad, Henry Salisbury. Her hobbies were baking, scrapbooking and fun road trips; but her greatest joy was spending time with her nieces and nephews as they were the loves of her life. She also loved the beach, collecting cookbooks and anything pink. Amanda was a Nascar fan and went to several races with friends or her father; also spending many years going to drag races with her father during her childhood and teens. Most Saturday lunches were spent at Girasoles enjoying tacos (and the occasional margarita) with mom and friends, including her best friend Debbie Edwards. Amanda was predeceased by both sets of grandparents, an uncle and two cousins. She is survived by Kittie & Henry Salisbury, her father Rick, many aunts, uncles and cousins. To continue her legacy of helping children memorial donations can be made to CASA of Grayson County or Grayson County Children's Advocacy Center. A Celebration of Life will be held at Girasoles Mexican Restaurant on Thursday, September 16, 2021 from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM with Taco's and Margarita's available.
