Amanda Kay Cates of Crystal City, MO, August 29, 2006.

Beloved daughter of Michael E. and Carolyn (nee Gunter) Cates; dear sister of Mike and Brad Cates; dear grand-daughter of Robert and Doris Gunter, Gordon and Eva Bayless and the late Charles Cates; dear aunt of Kirsten, Hayley and Mike; dear friend to many.

Amanda was a Police Officer for the City of Normandy and was a member of the Missouri School Resource Officer
Association. She was a resource officer for Normandy
Middle School.

Services: Visitation Thursday, August 31, 2006, 3-9 p.m. at CHAPEL HILL Mortuary, 6300 Highway 30, Cedar Hill, MO 63016 (636) 274-4100. Service Friday, 9 a.m. at Chapel Hill Mortuary. Interment New Hope Cemetery, Ellsinore, MO. In lieu of flowers, memorials to Backstoppers are appreciated.

Amanda was shot and killed at the home she shared with her boyfriend. He is also a police officer and has been arrested for the murder.

Chief Lebert said his first impressions of Cates was that of a passionate police officer who enjoyed her work as a school resource officer at Normandy Middle School. She spent the summer working with teachers and pulling together projects for the children in anticipation of the new school year.

"It's unique to see an officer pour her heart and soul into her work," Lebert said. "But she genuinely cared for and loved the kids there."

AS AN AFTER NOTE: Robert Brooks was found guilty of second degree murder.
