Amber Marie Neal

October 26, 1981March 8, 2020

Amber Marie Neal, beloved daughter of David Neal and Susan Testori passed away on March 8, 2020.

Amber was born on October 26, 1981 in Middletown , CT. She grew up in Madison and was a graduate of Daniel Hand High School. Amber worked most of her life in the customer service industry in which her respect, empathy, patience and attentiveness with people were highly valued.

Amber was a kindhearted, caring, selfless person. Her journey in life gave her an understanding of the hardship and struggles of others and she would do anything for anyone who needed her help. She was often described as being a “bright light” and was genuinely beautiful inside and out.

In addition to her parents, Amber is survived by the love of her life, her son Jason Kjos of Westbrook; much loved siblings Gina, Julia, and Scott Testori and stepfather Jay Testori of Madison; her paternal grandmother Margaret Neal and stepmother, Mariska Weigelt of Clinton as well as many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews and friends who loved her dearly.

She was predeceased by her maternal grandparents, John and Elizabeth Schoen, her paternal grandfather David Neal, her aunt, Janet Neal and her cousin Jolene White.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to “Demand Zero”, a wonderful organization that we know Amber would have been very supportive of and grateful if even just one person could be helped through her. You can find information on their website, demandzero.org .

“She concealed her tears but shared her smiles.”

Service information will be forthcoming.


  • Due to the current situation with the Coronavirus outbreak, and in the interest of public safety, the family will be postponing any public services for Amber at this time. This page will be updated when a service is scheduled.

Such a sweet girl and gentle soul. Always wanted to help. Never asked for anything in return.. You were one-of-a-kind.... Beautiful, smart, with such a dynamic personality I couldn't help but like you! Believe it or not I remember the very first night I met you. I remember what we did and the very conversation we had.. We were instant friends!!

You will be kept in my thoughts often and You will be kept in my heart forever!

Your friend

I met Amber when she was in New London . We crossed paths at NLHHC where I worked. Amber had a light about her and very energetic. I knew her struggles were hard. I 've been there before.
I know she helped who ever could when she could. That s who she was. I was saddened when I heard of her passing and how it happened. My blessings go out to Ambers family and friends. Amber struggles no more ...may she rest now 🙏🙏🙏🌹🌹🌹
