Amanda Baker's family releases statement

Posted: Updated:

Scotts Bluff County Correctional Officer Amanda Baker's family provided the Scotts Bluff County Sheriff's Office with the following statement, and approved to provide it to the public:

"Amanda Baker was a light in our world that was blown out much too early. At the age of 24, she was a loving mother and a cherished daughter and sister.

 With a great sense of humor and a smile that took over her whole face, any room would brighten when she entered.

She was furthering her education and was working to getting her credentials to become a nurse at the Torrington Correctional Facility.

Amanda was trying to make the very best life she could for her and her 6 year old son.

Amanda had a great inner strength and she will be greatly missed by her family, friends and co-workers.  In the words of her son "She was the greatest mother ever".

Also, the family has set up a fund for anyone wishing to make donations.
