On September 11, 2020, surrounded by her family, Amberly Rose Sullivan entered heaven and into the loving embrace of her Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Amberly will be deeply missed by her parents, Russ & Nancy Sullivan; her siblings, Chelsea and her husband Michael Challinor, Clark Sullivan, and Drew and his wife Jeanna Sullivan; her maternal grandparents, Henry & Susan Kehler; her paternal grandmother, Nadine Sullivan; extended family and friends.
She was predeceased by her paternal grandfather, Jerry Sullivan.
Amberly was born on July 28, 1996 in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Her greatest joy was being together with her family and friends. Many hours were also spent cuddling with her feline companions, Leola and Judith. She loved sunshine, the great outdoors, and especially those times she and her family were able to make trips to the ocean. As an “audiophile”, Amberly loved music and it showed by the endless number of playlists she created. Amberly had a “black belt” in crocheting. Many were blessed by her creative gifts, which eventually blossomed into a small business called “Yarn over Matter”. Above all, Amberly will be remembered for her quick wit, a beautiful smile that made her eyes sparkle, her compassionate heart and a deep love for her Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Amberly dreamed of pursuing graphic design and joining the Media Team at Ethnos Canada, but the health challenges she faced never allowed her to fulfill that goal. If you feel led to share in Amberly’s dream, donations may be made to the Ethnos Canada Media Team. Cheques can be made payable to “Ethnos Canada” with a note “In memory of Amberly Sullivan”.
In memory of Amberly Sullivan I would like to give a one time gift to the Media Team of Ethnos Canada.
Thank you for your donation.
God is building His Church, and we are thrilled you are taking part. Through your support, we are making progress on our goal ... a thriving church for every people.
Possible delay in receiving your gift
It can take up to 10 days for Ethnos Canada to receive gifts given through the website, as there is a 'pending' period for credit cards. Only after your gift is received at our bank do we credit donations to the designated ministry. It is possible that an online donation made near the end of the month will not be credited to the designated ministry until the following month.
The family would like to extend their deepest appreciation to her numerous doctors, specialists, therapists, pharmacists and many other healthcare workers who never gave up fighting to find answers to Amberly’s pain; and to the ICU team at University Hospital in London who so lovingly cared for her until her last breath. The family is also very grateful for everyone who reached out to Amberly through thoughtful gifts and encouraging notes; and for those who never grew weary of upholding Amberly in their prayers.
Due to COVID restrictions, a private “Celebration of Life” service will be taking place. The family invites you to join this celebration via live stream on Sunday, September 27, 2020 at 3:00 PM Eastern Standard Time. It can be accessed by searching for the website or Facebook page of “McCulloch-Watson Funeral Home” (website: here; Facebook: here); the “Prayers for Amberly” Facebook page (here) as well as at the YouTube channel of “Mark Ducommun” (here).
A video of the service will also be available to view at your convenience shortly after the live stream. Access to the video can be found at the 4 locations previously mentioned.
