Amber became a housewife who enjoyed baking, cooking and sewing for her family and loved flowers and working in her vegetable garden.

She was a member of the United Church of Christ where she had taught Sunday school and actively participated in their sewing circle and other activities.

Amber is survived by her sons, Robert of Neillsville and Wayne of Stoughton; a daughter, Linda Aslakson, New Glarus; and her only very special grandchild, Elizabeth Aslakson of New Glarus. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Clifford and her brother, Raymond Northup.
