Amber is survived by her husband, Richard; son and special daughter-in-law, Matthew and Alison Sebastian; her "rock," daughter Shannon, and her fur baby Peanut. She is also survived by Toni Roberts. Amber dearly loved her children. There was a special place in her heart for her grandchildren, Case and Elliott. She was a proud Grammy to such special grand-babies. She was so happy when she was spending time with her whole family. Before her illness, she was a pharmacy technician at Kroger and was employed at McDonald's, too.

Amber and I worked alongside each other at Kroger for several years, talking about furry kids, teaching (my wife teaches and her 2 kids were both going into/were in teaching), TV shows, customers and candy that grows on trees! She loved her job and her customers, talking to each one and developing special connections to everyone! But Amber and I developed a special sense and understanding between us in which we knew what the other was thinking and needed done at that moment, often without saying a word. Amber loved everyone and we love her, then, now, and always. We love ❤️ you Amber! Love ❤️ Stephen and Michelle
