Obituary for Amber E. Gabbard (Whitten)

Amber E. Gabbard,
12/10/1973 - 12/13/2023

Amber Gabbard passed away due to health complications Wednesday at Baptist East Hospital surrounded by family and friends.

She is survived by her mother, Nancy Crapanzano; stepfather, Chuck Crapanzano; brothers, Dave Whitten and Steve Whitten (Shauna), and many friends who supported and loved her like family.

She was preceded in death by her father, Frank Whitten.

Amber was well-known for her quick wit, hard work, and determination. Like a lighthouse, Amber often stood tall and strong by herself; all while being a beacon of light to those that found themselves lost. She had a servant’s heart and will be missed by so many.

A private memorial will be at Highland Funeral Home on Saturday, December 16th at 2:00 pm.

The funeral home will be accepting donations to apply towards Amber's funeral expenses. Those may be made on the funeral home's website under the "Payment Center" tab at the top of the page selecting Amber's obituary.
