Amanda Louise Doucette


Amesbury, MA — Amanda Louise Doucette, age 26, of Amesbury, died unexpectedly Monday morning, September 23, 2013.

Born in Lawrence, April 21, 1987, she was the daughter of the late Harold Doucette and Oveline M. Morrill. Amanda graduated from the Amesbury Academy of Strategic Learning.

She went on to receive a degree in Childhood Education from Northern Essex Community College in Haverhill, where she was the recipient of the “Academic Award for High Honors.”

She had worked at the YWCA Child Care Program for the past several years, bringing much joy to her young charges through the various activities provided, from reading to arts and crafts.
