Amanda Rivenburg's loving and caring nature made a huge impact on the community. Her mother Donna Rivenburg says Amanda chose the perfect career working for Living Resources.
"She loved helping people and that was her," Donna Rivenburg said.
Amanda died on October 6 at the age of 29. She was one of the victims in the Schoharie limo crash.
The organization Amanda gave so much to over the years honored her Wednesday night.
"What Amanda was able to leave during that 29 years was just absolutely amazing," said Frank Prevratil, Amanda's supervisor at Living Resources.
She joined Living Resources after graduating from SUNY Plattsburgh in 2011.
Amanda started as a day community specialist. But she quickly moved up over the last seven years to become an assistant director.
"It was just one of those it had to happen kind of people, where she was just so good." Prevratil said. "She was so good at what she did."
Her hard work and dedication was appreciated by family, friends, and colleagues braving the cold for the candlelight vigil.
Inside the Living Resources logo is a heart. Prevratil says Amanda was that heart.
"She got into a field that can be tough at times," Prevratil said. "But this was her world."
Her world is now sharing her stories as they continue to remember and celebrate Amanda's life.
"Some make you cry, some make you laugh," Donna Rivenburg said. "But it's really helped with all the support we've gotten."
