Amber Shambrea Life Reflections
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” II Timothy 4:7-8
A Time to Be Born
Amber Shambrea Yeadon, the oldest child born to MaryAnn Nesbitt Yeadon and the late Kenneth Yeadon, Sr. was born on September 7, 1989, in Charleston, South Carolina.
A Time to Die
God chooses his best. Without a goodbye, on Saturday afternoon, December 16, 2023, at the home of her mother, Amber just slept into eternity.
A Time to Love
Although Amber had no children of her own, she was blessed to love on her three beautiful God children: Khylee, Cayden, and August and the three apples of her eyes, Zahmir, Neilson, and Kenneth III. However, Amba, as she was called by many of her friends was loved by many.
A Time for Every Purpose Under the Sun
Amber was reared in Cross, South Carolina. She attended the schools in Cross and was a proud graduate of the Class of 2007 of Cross High School. She was smart and was active in many organizations, but she especially loved the Cross Marching Blue Thunder Band and the Cross Varsity Cheerleaders Team. Amber went on to further her education at South Carolina State University in Orangeburg, South Carolina and later graduated with a degree in Speech Pathology.
Amber grew up in St. Matthew A.M.E Church and was an active church school attendee where she served as Secretary. She was a member of the St. Matthew’s Combined Choir where she sang beautifully with her angelic voice. Two of Amber’s favorite songs were: “I’ll Go if I Have to Go by Myself” and “Jesus Will Turn it Around.” She also served as President of the YPD (Young People’s Division).
In 2020, Amber relocated to Rock Hill, SC and remained until her passing. She was most recently employed as a logistic analyst. Amber was a very kind, gentle, quiet, and a compassionate person. Because of her gentle spirit, people were always drawn to her. To know Amber was to love her. Her beautiful smile could light up a room. Amber loved her family and friends. Right now, we cannot imagine our lives without her, but God in his infinite wisdom makes no mistakes.
A Time to Mourn
Amber is preceded in death by her father, the Late Kenneth Yeadon Sr., grandfather, Rev. Paul Nesbitt, grandmother, Geneva Hamilton Nesbitt, grandmother, Viola Yeadon McClaney, and uncle, Roosevelt Nesbitt.
