Amanda Jones Robertson, 93, of Paducah, KY, passed away Sunday, February 11, 2018 at
Amanda was born in Paducah on April 24, 1924 to Ed and Grace Jones. She grew up on their
dairy farm in McCracken County. She often reminisced about summers spent picking
strawberries with her siblings, Cora, Athlyn, Eva, and Jimmy. In 1945 she married Clarence
Frederick Robertson. Together, they raised two children, Fred and Barbara. Amanda's ability
to put people at ease and make them feel welcome helped her make friendships that lasted a
lifetime. She met with members of her high school class for lunch for many, many years. She
put her social graces to work for good causes as a Paducah Ambassador and as a Lioness
with the Lone Oak Lions Club. She was a member of St. Paul Lutheran church and retired from
the Purchasing Department of Sears & Roebuck Co.
Later in life, she took up ballroom dancing, cutting a figure in local and regional competitions.
Amanda was quick to laugh and always had a snappy reply. She was also very kind, going to
great lengths to make the people around her feel loved. Her family will miss her warmth, spirit,
and her beautiful smile.

Paducah; her son, Fred Robertson and wife Kay, of Benton, KY; her sister, Eva jones Newton
