Amanda Lynn Benton Funeral Service

$8,007 of $7,000 goal

Raised by 182 people in 17 months
This was setup to assist in funding the Funeral services of Amanda Lynn Benton, 29, a loving mother of four as well as the unfortunate additional loss of her unborn child of 5 months.  We sincerely request any support that you can offer during the mourning of our very beloved family member.  This unexpected tragedy has struck deep within our hearts and we would love nothing more than to honor her passing with the dignity and respect that she deserves.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts in advance for any assistance that you can provide during this difficult time.  May god bless you all.

I'm Amanda's uncle, on behalf of our family I want to thank everyone for being so generous. Words can't express how much you all helped us. I'm writing you all so that you know that I am withdrawing the funds and just what we're doing for her. The funds are going towards the cremation for Amanda and some of her ashes will be used to make her mother, father, Andrew ( her fiancé) and her 4 sons keepsakes, which will also be purchased from the funds. Her services will be held at Messiah Church in Detroit on Saturday at 10 a.m. ( see Facebook for directions), we will be using the funds for this and memorial funeral cards. There will be a repass/wake directly after, in which some of the funds will be used for the food. Any and all extra funds will be used to give her 4 boys one more Christmas from Amanda. Once again thanks everybody for the prayers, shares and the donations. None of this would be possible without all your help. Our family is forever grateful to you all. Sincerely Charles Harper

Thank you everyone so much. I can't put into words how grateful we all are. We're doing the best we can to figure out the funeral. If there's any money left over we're planning on getting keepsakes made with her ashes for her children. I will update when I get more info. Once again thank you all so much.

Everyone that is leaving their shitty opinions: calm the fuck down and do that shit on your page, not the gofundme page. She was not a perfect human being, far from an ideal mother, no matter the situation do not pass judgment on her. God knows all. Lastly her kids and mother loved her unconditionally. This supports them not Amanda. Rest in Peace Amanda no one deserves what happened to you no matter the case may be.

Addiction is a horrid disease, it doesn't mean she didn't love her children! It doesn't mean she deserved to die! I hate when people who have never battled addiction say things like that! Her family didn't deserve to bury her! I pray for peace among all of her friends and family!

This women's mom came into my work yesterday to pick up balloons for the funeral for her daughter and unborn grandbaby. I felt so bad for her I cried as I watched her break down as she was walking away to her truck. Before she left I gave her a hug. Idc who you are no one deserves this. Bless that woman's moms heart who came into the Allen park dollar castle. You will forever be in my heart. Rip to your babies. ❤

I am sure Amanda was a beautiful girl caught in the web of addiction, just like my Kylie was. I don't believe anyone purposefully thinks "I'm going to get addicted". Usually it's something much deeper where they are looking to escape and just get caught up in this horrible disease. Even though it is self-inflicted, make no mistake it is a disease! Before you go casting stones...please consider the heartbreak and horror of losing a child or being young and losing your mother. It's devastating....but there are uncaring, ignorant people in the world and God tells us to love them also. You are in my prayers....Blessings to you all.

I'm appalled at the inconsiderate comments on here regarding this situation. Children have lost their mother, parents have lost their daughter, and a woman has lost her life. If you have something to say and it isn't kind, this is a time that you act with compassion that should have been taught to you as a child and keep it to yourself. For heaven's sake, why anyone would come on a page like this, NOT donate, and then on top of everything, proceed to express their entitled opinion on the situation is in very poor taste. My condolences to her children, family, and friends, and may she rest in peace.

Her past or current life has no bearing on the fact that she was killed in a most heinous way. Who are we to judge another person that we don't even know?!!

I didn't know Amanda very well but the little I did know of her she displayed Honesty, Loyalness, compassion and so much Love for her children and family, Thats what she talked to me about. She really did something good in my life and she actually helped me see some things in life that I never would have saw, I was blinded!!! and with all that being said she told me she the reason she told me the things she did was because even though she was a drug addict she said she knew I was so good to a certain person that betrayed me, she said I may have my problems and do drugs but I love my kids and family FIRST and I HATE TO SEE GOOD PEOPLE LIKE YOU be hurt and screwed over by someone you think loves you and is your friend. All along , I kept thinking to myself ,This girl came to me, she didn't even know me, but felt so bad and compassion for me that she sought me out. And Amanda I want you to know, I am Thankful, I am proud, I am blessed to have met such a wonderful person like you, I was always in your corner, I was hoping that you would one day get better, because YOU DESERVED IT, YOU WERE GOOD, KIND, LOVING AND CARING, Just so you know Amanda, on that day, I admired you!

I've been reading the comments and some just amaze me. I lost my niece Crystal at the age of 36 this January to addiction and it's a terrible thing to go threw. I can't still believe she is gone! No matter what you think of this person Amanda think of her kids. We set up a go fund account for my niece's kids and the money has helped tremendously. Please have some peace in your heart for the children!
