ANTONUCCI-ROG, Kniertje Amanda
Jan 2, 1977 – Nov 22, 2019
In Loving Memory of Kniertje Amanda Antonucci-Rog, loving mother, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, and friend.
On Nov 22, 2019, Amanda passed away peacefully after a long time battle with an autoimmune disease. She was held in the arms of her two beautiful daughters Hayley and Meagan Antonucci, and surrounded by her loving family and closest friends.
Amanda was born in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, to her mother Karen M Rog-Ehler and father, Philip Rog. Before Amanda turned one, she and her family moved to the US and eventually settled in New Hampshire (NH). Amanda attended grade and high school in NH and graduated highschool in 1995 from Kingswood Regional High. After marrying and having two daughters, Amanda followed her parents to the Sunshine State.
Since then, Amanda committed many years to the healthcare field, serving with compassion and empathy. However, she was not without sarcasm and wit when needed. The last ten years, she worked for Lee Health Park in Ft Myers, FL, where she was loved by many as a loyal friend and trusted confidante. Her co-worker and good friend Molly has many of these memories to share.
Amanda was at her happiest when with her girls. She loved getting her nails done with Hayley and cheering at Meagan’s volleyball games. She was almost just as happy at home, snuggled up with her cats, crocheting her next project (usually for a friend). Meeting friends at local establishments and attending concerts were common, and she certainly enjoyed beach time. Eventually, rubbing it in that Florida was so much nicer than New England in the Winter. Most recent memorable moments on the beach were with her life-long friend Eliza who stood by her as a child and stood by her in the end.
Amanda’s, love, compassion for others, laughter and sarcasm will be deeply missed by many as her time on earth was way too short. Although we have shared our last sunset with Amanda, she will walk with us each sunrise in our hearts.
Amanda is predeceased in death by her mother Karen M Rog-Ehler, grandparents Nana Ehler and Oma and Opa Rog. Amanda leaves behind her beloved daughters Hayley and Meagan Antonucci, who are her whole world. She is survived by her father Philip Rog, siblings Richard Gendreau, Paula Gendreau, and her wife Shauna Snyder, Tanya Jordan, David Rog, and five nieces and nephews. In Holland, she is survived by her aunt Nel and Detlef Kruger, Wouter and Mieke Rog, and Kitty and Rien Eykelenboom.
A celebration of life will be planned at a later date by her family and friends.
