It is with much sadness I will try to write the obituary of our mother, Unave Amburgey. Mom was born on Sunday,
March 6, 1927. Her parents were Watson Everage and Millie Watts Everage. Mom passed from this life on
Tuesday, May 2, 2006, making her stay here on this earth, 79 years, 1 month and 26 days.
Mom was preceded in death by her brothers, Berlin “Bird” Everage, Estill “Ted” Everage, and Everett “Eb”
Everage and her sisters, Claudia Mullins and Dell Everage. Also, preceding her in death was our father, Onas (O.
J.) Amburgey. God blessed them with a son, James Watson (Katie) Amburgey and a daughter, Patricia
Amburgey (Elvis) Crum.
God also blessed Mom with 10 grandchildren, Patti, Charles “Buddy”, Michelle, Jason, Misty, Nicholas, Shannon,
Marcus, Valerie and Brandon; and 9 great-grandchildren, Kendra, Michael, Zachary, Charles “Little Buddy”,
Peyton, Justin, Jordan, Jack and Sean.
Mother was a member of the Little Bethlehem Old Regular Baptist Church at Brinkley, Kentucky. She attended
as long as her health allowed. Even after she was not able to attend, she still cooked and sent food for the Union
and Memorial meetings in addition to sending money for food. I loved to listen to Mom talk about her religion and
her love for the Lord.
Mom worked in nursing most of her life. The health field was a true calling for her. I had the privilege of working
beside her in my younger years and she really enjoyed her work.
Over the past few years after Dad passed away, I felt glad we moved here to help her with his passing. She
loved her family, as she looked forward to the large crowds during the holidays.
We miss you, Mother, as this year has been the hardest, but we know you’re with our Father and I know you
won’t have to worry any more. Knowing she is no longer in pain and with Dad gives me the strength to see each
day through, and I am waiting until we’re all together again.
Written by her heart-broken daughter, Patricia Crum.
