Amanda L. Franks, 38, a resident of New Ipswich, NH died on January 17, 2018 at New London Hospital, New London, NH after a sudden illness.
She was born on October 15, 1979 in Peterborough, NH, a daughter of Scott A. Blease and Mercy L. King. She attended schools in New Ipswich and Keene and graduated from Keene High School. She was self-employed with her own cleaning business and made many friends through her business.
Amanda lived her life to the fullest and unapologetically followed her heart. She was a beautiful person inside and out. She had a big heart and a kind soul. She enjoyed her trips to the beach, getting there much before the crowds ever did. Her family trips to Mexico was another favorite thing of hers. She was the family baker, baking elaborate cakes for all the special occasions. Her world revolved around her family.
