Boca Raton Country Club Says Woman Owes $94K, Even Though She’s Dead.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Don’t die without fully paying up your membership dues to St. Andrews Country Club in Boca Raton — that’s the message the country club is sending a dead woman through her very much alive personal representative.
According to the suit just filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court, Amanda Francis had the audacity to die on April 17th, 2021, while a member of St. Andrews Country Club. A death certificate reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com indicates that Francis died at an area hospital, at age 54. She is survived by her young children.
But that didn’t stop St. Andrews from filing suit against her estate, claiming that she owes more than $100,000 if you count attorney fees. And St. Andrews is clearly counting attorney fees.
From the suit: “At all times material hereto, including when Amanda Francis executed Club Membership related documents and thereby acquired a Club Membership, Article VII of the Club’s Bylaws have provided that a Member is obligated to pay dues, assessments, fees and other charges to the Club as determined by the Club’s Board of Governors until the membership is terminated.”
The club claims she did not pay for several months prior to her death. It’s unclear if St. Andrews’ math also includes demand for payment after she went to the great St. Andrews country club in the sky. Respecting health privacy laws, we do not know if Ms. Francis suffered a medical situation that prevented payment in the months prior to her death.
While her family mourns her, St. Andrews says it is truly hurting. ”The CLUB has suffered damages as a result of Amanda Francis’ failure to pay the outstanding dues, assessments, fees, and other charges,” wrote attorneys.
