On October 2, 2001, God took my mother home to rest. She had a better home waiting in Heaven and she
was ready to go.
She was born in Knott County, Kentucky on June 16, 1928 to Creed Amburgey and Louzana Mullins
Amburgey. She went home to God on October 21, 2000, making her stay here on earth 72 years, 3 months
and 16 days. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 49 years, Sesco Fields, one daughter; Betty
Jean Speck, one brother; Virgil Amburgey and two sisters; Stella and Verna Mae. She leaves to mourn at her
passing three sons; Randall Fields, Michael Fields and Billy Gordon Fields, three daughters; Patricia Berry,
Kathy Fields, and Sandra Gibson, three brothers, Iva J. Amburgey, Obrene Amburgey and Sidney Willis
Amburgey, two sisters; Louise Hylton and Flossie Burgess, five adored grandchildren; Scott Fields, Jeffrey
Fields, Tabitha Fields, Bradley Gibson and Lisa Danielle Gibson.
There is a void in our hearts that can’t be filled, for we only get one mother. Although we miss her more than
words can say, our loss is truely Heaven’s gain.
I will always remember her sweetly singing Amazing Grace with me. Perhaps in Heaven we can sing it
Below is a poem my son Bradley wrote for her on the morning of her funeral:
All earthly thing must come to pass,
Not to be seen another day,
But our souls are everlasting,
Never to fade away.
You left behind memories,
Which we shall always treasure,
Memories of joy,
Beyond human measure.
To my dear sweet Grandma,
That I write today,
You rest in God’s care,
Which is what matters anyway.
