Amelia Michelle Sanford

July 11, 1984 — November 16, 2021

Amelia Michelle Sanford, of Los Angeles, CA, left us unexpectedly Tuesday, November 16, 2021, after having bravely beaten both cancer and covid. She was 37.

Cherished daughter of Ronald Sanford and Joann (Steve) Burpo; dear sister of Mallori (Neil) Moncey and Claire Sanford; loving aunt of Harvie, Gunnar and Ella; Goddaughter of Helen Robinson; her four-legged baby, Bolt; aunts, uncles, cousins and many many dear friends.

Amelia's love of sports and her natural abilities lead her to a storied basketball career. Winning major awards, countless MVP trophies and starting varsity as a freshman in high school, she was phenomenal on the wood. She graduated with honors from Lutheran High School.

She went to Lindenwood University in St. Charles, MO, on academic scholarship, before transferring to her beloved West Coast to finish her degree in Theatre Arts at Concordia-Irvine. Amelia then began her career in television.

Amelia was a skilled Production Coordinator with a love of working on location in Alaska. Exceptionally creative, Amelia was also an assistant story producer, working on some of the most recognized shows on television. She was also an avid LA Rams fan and her enthusiasm caused family and friends to be fans as well. Amelia took her role as big sister seriously and loved her sisters with her whole heart. Even though she lived in LA, she and Mallori talked every day, sometimes multiple times. Her bond with her dog Bolt was that of kindred spirits. He was a child to her. Amelia's smile lit up a room and her laugh was contagious. She was a constant advocate for kindness and treated everyone she met like a friend. She had a transcendent, kind and pure soul. Amelia left her mark on this world in so many ways but most of all she left incredible memories that will be cherished always. She was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

Memorial contributions may be made in Amelia's name to the ASPCA.
