Mandy spent many years in the fashion industry, working in Newton, Boston, and New York City. She regularly attended shows in Las Vegas and Southern California, and was very skilled at working trade shows, selling high end denim.
Mandy married the love of her life, William L. Putney, on June 9, 2002 in Roger Williams Park in Providence, together they made their home in New York City, before returning to Massachusetts, first settling in Franklin and later in Brookline.
Mandy was truly a social butterfly, making friends with everyone she met. She looked forward to parties, trips, and socializing with all her friends. Her travel plans usually included a trip to the beach and a shopping extravaganza. Back at home, Mandy enjoyed preparing old family recipes for her family to enjoy. Most of all, Mandy was dedicated to her family. She and Bill shared a wonderful relationship, welcoming her two sons together, Trey and Kai. There was nothing Mandy wouldn't do for her boys and she loved being present at all their events, cheering for them from the sideline.
