PIERCE, Amanda O'Keefe 18, of Tampa, passed away March 9, 2013. She is survived by her mother, Laurie Pierce; father, Dr. Ronald Peirce (Tamra); sister, Jessica Pierce and brother, Chase Pierce. Amanda blessed so many in so many ways with her light hearted, bright smile and her bubbly, outgoing personality. She was kind, fun to be with, giving, loving and caring and a friend to everyone. She was great with children and an inspiration to each one she got to spend time with; including those in the "Best Buddies" program at Plant High School; a program that matched a "buddy" to disabled or special needs children. She worked at St. John's Episcopal School caring for children in after school programs as well as caring for children in YMCA programs. She was very involved in these children's lives and planned to teach special education one day. Visitation will be Wednesday, March 13, 2013 from 2-4 pm and 6-8 pm at Blount & Curry Funeral Home, 605 S. MacDill Ave., with a Celebration of Life on Thursday, March 14, 2013 at 2 pm at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 509 N. Florida Ave. Burial to follow at Myrtle Hill Cemetery. A scholarship fund is being set up at GTE Federal Credit Union, with details available soon. Please sign the online guestbook at
