Amanda Marie "Smiley" Marks, 32, of 601 Market St., Mifflinburg, Peacefully entered into the presence of the Lord on Monday, May 15, 2017, at the Geisinger Medical Center, Danville, surrounded by her loving family. A beautiful heart stopped beating that morning.

She was born Sept. 25, 1984, in Lewisburg, a daughter of Joel S. Freed, of Middleburg, and Wanda M. (Wonders) Weller, of Mifflinburg. On March 25, 2006, she married Joseph M. Marks who survives.

Amanda was a 2003 graduate of Mifflinburg High School.
She was employed at the Lewisburg McDonald's until her illness required her to retire.
Amanda always had a passion for others. Her sweetness spilled out on everyone around her. Her smile was contagious and her love and devotion to the Lord was evident by her big heart. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, playing games, listening to music, and was an awesome cook and baker.
She was a member of the Mifflinburg Church of the Nazarene. On July 29, 2004, God blessed Amanda with the gift of motherhood when she gave birth to her one and only daughter, Abigail. Abigail Marie Marks quickly became the love of her life.
