Joy Amethyst Chambers

February 21, 1985 - April 27, 2016

Joy Amethyst ‘Amie’ Chambers, 31, passed away April 27, 2016 after a lengthy illness. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

She was born February 21, 1985, in Youngstown, OH, the daughter of N. Jane Chambers Zorn, and the younger sister of N. Shane Chambers of Austin, TX. She was a 2003 graduate of Whitehall-Yearling High School and lived in the Columbus area most of her life. She was very athletic in her younger years, participating in ballet classes, basketball, and Jr. Ramettes. While in high school, she was a member of the WYHS Flag Corps. She was also a gifted singer and sang in the high school and church choirs.

She had many passions in her life, one of which was drawing. She was quite the artist! She combined that love with her love of Japanese Anime and would sketch characters that she saw while attending Anime parties.  She also enjoyed drawing tattoos for people. She adored tattoos, and always wanted one. At one point, riding down the freeway, she spotted a fellow traveler with a beautiful tattoo design on his left arm.  She motioned out the window at him, and at 75 miles per hour, going down the highway, she took photos of his tattoo!!  (She wasn’t driving!!)

She was a very happy person, and, at times, could be very goofy. She loved to make people laugh. She had an uncanny humor, and could always come up with something to put a smile on your face, such as the time she wore a headband of cat’s ears and walked thru the grocery store carrying milk and cat food.

She loved animals and had two cats that she adored. Because she also loved to watch food shows and had contemplated becoming a chef, she named the cats Butterscotch and Vanilla. She had started making cupcakes and hoped to sell them online.  Her friends called her the ‘Crazy Cupcake Lady.’  She put everything she could give into her friends. She worried more about them than she did herself, sometimes. When she found a need, she tried to fill it, even going out of her way to help someone.

Amie will be dearly missed by her mother, with whom she made her home; her brother, whom she had hoped to visit; and all her family and friends. The family would like to thank the staff of nurses and doctors at OSU hospital, Grant hospital, and Select Specialties hospital for all their love, care, and concern shown to Amie. The family would also like to thank the Schoedinger Family and Buckeye Cremation Society for caring for their loved one.

A memorial tribute will be held for Amie at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that any material contributions be sent in Amie’s memory to Central Ohio Diabetes Association, 1100 Dennison Ave, Columbus, OH 43201.

To often we lose touch with those we care about. I haven't talked to Amie in a couple years, but she was often in my thoughts, and always in my heart. She left a lasting impression on those who were fortunate enough to meet her.
