Amanda El­iz­a­beth Long, age 34, passed away at St. Michael’s Pal­lia­tive Care, in Leth­bridge, Al­berta at 4:46 a.m., July 26, 2018. She was sur­rounded by her two daugh­ters, Ava and Brooklyn, hus­band Tyler, her brother David, her sis­ter Can­dida, her mama Marie and dad Glenn, as well as her niece Meadow. Amanda was born on March 12, 1984 in Drumheller, Al­berta to Marie (Fayant) and Glenn Gre­nier and was the youngest of three chil­dren. Grow­ing up, Amanda wanted to try as many things as she could and she did. She es­pe­cially loved danc­ing, her cats and ex­plor­ing wher­ever she went. From a very early age, Amanda was an in­de­pen­dent, car­ing, lov­ing, thought­ful, sen­ti­men­tal and coura­geous in­di­vid­ual. Amanda was beau­ti­ful in­side and out. All of Amanda’s traits truly blos­somed when she met her hus­band Tyler. Be­ing a mother and a wife be­came her first pri­or­ity and she ex­celled at it. Amanda and Tyler mar­ried on July 7, 2007 in Banff and had 2 beau­ti­ful daugh­ters. As a fam­ily, they took trips to Kuaui, Disneyworl­d and Costa Rica. Camp­ing trips, bik­ing and hik­ing through the moun­tains and in the win­ter, ski­ing and snow­board­ing were some of the many im­por­tant ways to Amanda for strength­en­ing fam­ily ties. Fam­ily was the most im­por­tant thing to Amanda and she tire­lessly worked and planned to keep it that way. About a year be­fore Amanda started get­ting sick, she was en­rolled in a pro­gram work­ing to­ward get­ting her GED and Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion. She was so proud of her high marks and like every­thing else Amanda set out to do, she would have suc­ceeded. Amanda leaves be­hind her two daugh­ters, Ava and Brooklyn, hus­band Tyler, mama Marie, dad Glenn, brother David, sis­ter Can­dida, nieces and neph­ews, as well as Fa­ther and Mother-in-law, Wayne and Karen Long, brother-in law Ja­son.
