Amber Young Obituary

On Friday, November 24th, Heaven opened its gates for the purest and brightest soul that many of us have had the joy of knowing. Amber Tamlin Young, 33, of Cambria passed away in her sleep in the home of her doting mother and stepfather. She was born January 21st, 1990, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to parents Scott and Cathy (Schumacher) Young. Amber was born with cerebral palsy and epilepsy. While this may have hindered her body, her heart and mind were never stunted. If there is a limit to love, Amber never reached it. She loved everyone she met and made sure to tell them every chance she could. She didn't have many words, but she communicated her joy and love in more ways than just her incessant "I love you's". She always needed to know where you were and why you were there. She would get so excited to see or talk to you, that first she would start laughing and screaming with joy, and then she would be so overcome with that joy that she couldn't get any of her words out. You never doubted if Amber loved you or delighted in your presence, because she never let you forget it. Amber was so loved and cherished by her family. She attended the birth of all of her nieces and nephews, save one. The joy she felt when getting to hold those precious babies was a tangible presence and could be felt by everyone. She knew they were fragile and needed peace though, because her normal exuberant exclamations of happiness were turned into whisper-yells that wouldn't disturb her new family member, but still conveyed the depth of her joy and love. Amber was always happy. She truly was the happiest person many of us will ever know. Her happiness wasn't confined to her wheelchair the way her body was, and she delighted in every joy that was presented to her. She loved good movies, foot rubs, and Culver's mashed potatoes and gravy. Her laughter was beautiful and her smile infectious. Amber never let her mother forget just how much she loved and appreciated her by constantly calling for her and asking where she was if she wasn't right in her line of sight. Amber is survived by her parents Cathy (Jerry) Cigelske and Scott (Dorothy) Young, loving sisters Aysha (Pablo) Dominguez and Sierra (Nathaniel) Schimming, Grandmother Doral Young, adoring nieces and nephews Tristan, Serena, Sebastian, Sophia, Zoe, and Oliver, as well as many loving aunts, uncles, and cousins. She is proceeded in death by maternal grandparents Patricia (Clarence) Bundy and Kenneth Schumacher, paternal grandfather Edward Young, uncle Jeff Young, aunt Tammy Rettschlag, infant sister Leslie Ann, and cousins Dustin Doege and Mathew Young.
