Amber Rose Schoen

September 7, 1982 ~ June 2, 2019 (age 36)

On behalf of Amber Schoen, her family sadly informs you of her passing. On June 2nd 2019 our ray of sunshine passed away. Born as Amber Rose Schoen on September 7th 1982, her parents were Andrew Schoen and Kathryn Waller. She lost her battle to cancer. Survived by her mother Kathryn Cober, her brothers Robert and Shawn Flippo, Jeff and Scott Cober and sisters Kim Cober and Diane Merchant, and her four children, Alyssa Schoen, Jacob, Curtis, and Rachel Tunnison; family friends Jackie Smalley, Rene Welch and Troy Benthin. She was a loving mother, daughter, sister, aunt and cousin. Amber struggled with cancer which put her in a lot of pain and made her very sick. She was the toughest person you would ever meet. She was strong, independent and a fighter and we should never forget that. Through the pain and sickness Amber still went to work every day, drove her kids to school and kept a smile on her face. She was always smiling and had a positive attitude. No matter how hard things were she was always being positive and being her goofy self. That’s just who she was. She’d always be smiling and laughing and making jokes. She made everyone around her smile and laugh. She was an amazing person to be around. Her personality was just amazing and she was full of sunshine. Her favorite saying was “I got sunshine in my pocket.” That was her motto. Amber was a great person to talk to as well. She could become your best friend in just a few seconds. It was impossible not to love her. She gave good advice and was a great listener. She had good connections with just about everyone. 

She was the best person to be around. She always had a smile on her face and was always making jokes and being goofy. No matter what she had going on she would always be positive and smile and be happy. She was everyone’s sunshine on a gloomy day. Amber was a very hard worker and she never gave up. No matter what was going on or even if she was sick she still did everything she could. She went to work every day, took her kids to school, and made dinner no matter how she felt. She was very strong and independent. She didn’t like to ask for help or admit that she needed help. She was stubborn at times and didn’t want people to know if she was struggling. She did the best she could every day, she had a smile on her face even on the toughest of days.
