Amber Ross

Amber Nicole Looney Ross, 37, of Turkey Creek, Ky., beloved daughter, wife and mother, died Saturday, March 27, 2021, at Pikeville Medical Center, Pikeville, Kentucky.

She was born in Williamson, Sept. 19, 1983, a daughter of Johnny and Joann (Browning) Looney.

She was a kind and nurturing soul who dedicated her life to the care of others. She was a devoted nurse at Pikeville Medical Center, Pikeville, Kentucky. She was a gentle, caring person who extended concern to everyone she met. Her very presence spoke of benevolence and consideration and her smile alone communicated these attributes.  Her love was not limited to mankind. Her interest in the betterment of animals also tugged at her heart. It was not unusual for her to rescue a stray animal and she was often teased about running a zoo. Her love for God’s four-legged creatures was just one of many examples of her generosity.       

She would have described her life as blessed. Her husband, parents and daughter were the center of her being. She was content with the goodness of God which prevailed over her life. She was of the Apostolic faith and served the Lord diligently. Her brothers and sisters in Christ were just an extension of her family.  

As Psalms 116:15 proclaims, “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.” She held on to the fact, as explained in Isaiah 55:8-9, His ways and thoughts are indeed higher, and as Job said in Chapter 1 and verse 21, “ The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.”  In the good and in the bad seasons, Amber never failed to bless the name of the Lord. So in honoring her legacy and memory, may we continue to bless the name of the Lord; for His ways and His thoughts are indeed higher.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, Joe Browning Jr.; and her first cousin, Rebecca Anderson, whom she thought of as a sister.

She is survived by her husband, Jacob Ross, of Turkey Creek, Ky.; her daughter, Kaylee, of Turkey Creek, Ky.; her parents, Johnny and Joann Looney, of South Williamson, Ky.; her maternal grandmother, Shirley Browning, of Thacker; her paternal grandmother, Ann Looney, of Williamson; her father-in-law, Chris Ross, of Turkey Creek, Ky.; her brother-in-law, Stephen Ross (Emily), of Tennessee; her first cousins who were more like siblings, Beth Hunt (Thomas), of Delbarton, and Joe Jackson (Kiearia), of Thacker; a host of loving aunts, uncles and cousins; and a community of loving friends and neighbors.

Honoring services were held at 11 a.m., Wednesday, March 31, 2021, at the O.P.L Worship Center-Red Jacket 2454 WV-65 Matewan, with Rev. Chris Sowards officiating. Burial followed at Mountain View Memory Gardens, Huddy, Ky., with family and friends serving as pallbearers. Arrangements were under the direction of Chambers Funeral Services, Inc., of Matewan.
