Amber Sue Kelley was born in Anderson, South Carolina on May 17, 1993, and entered into rest in Elberton, Georgia on February 21, 2022, at the age of twenty-eight.
Amber was most proud of her three children: Ryder Lee (10), Marilyn Jean (5), and Hollie Wren (4), and they were the lights of their Mama's eyes. She was educated in the Elbert County School System and excelled at anything she set her mind to do. Amber loved drawing and was very talented at doing so. A lover of nature, she could often be found outdoors exploring or reading a book of any kind. She was an avid anime cartoon fan. Above all, she loved her family and never missed an opportunity to express her love to them.
