Amber M. Conboy, 41, of Salida, Colorado, formerly of Duluth, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014, in Colorado Springs, Colo., after a brief illness.
Amber was born on April 26, 1972.
She was a 1990 graduate of Hinckley High School, and later received her LPN degree from LSC and her RN degree from Hibbing Community College. She was currently employed as an assistant director of nursing at Columbine Nursing Home in Salida.
Amber had a passion for the out of doors. She could often be seen hiking the trails of Chester Creek in Duluth. She loved her daily bike rides and found solace in hiking and skiing the mountains of Colorado. She found fulfillment in establishing cottage gardens, listening and playing music, embroidery, making piecework quilts, meeting and spending time with friends, both old and new; but most importantly, being a strong, positive influence in the lives of her four children of whom she dearly loved.
Amber is survived by her children, Megan Rose, Lydia, Caleb and Quinn; her father, Michael (Jennifer) Conboy; her mother, Janice Vaughn; grandmother, Vi Hampeys; sisters, Nadine Conboy Swenson and Lindsay Vaughn; brothers, Peirce (Hiro) Conboy, Blake Conboy; her cousins and innumerable friends whom she treasured and respected.
Amber's family would like to thank the medical teams in Salida and Colorado Springs for their heroic efforts and to our friends and family for their encouragement and support.
CELEBRATION of LIFE: 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014 in Our Savior's Evangelical Lutheran Church, 4831 Grand Ave. in Duluth, with a coffee fellowship following the service. Visitation will be one hour prior. A private committal service will be held in Sandstone at a later date. Memorials to donor's choice.
