Amberlee Patrice Ward 7/30/1991~9/27/2005 In loving memory of our precious daughter, sister, friend, cousin, granddaughter, aunt and "Angel". She slipped away into our Heavenly Fathers arms on Tuesday, September 27, 2005 in South Jordan, UT. Amberlee's life on earth was seen not through her eyes but her heart. She could brighten a day with her usual "good morning" or a gentle kiss on your hand. Her powerful spirit was felt by everyone that knew her. Her physical challenges prevented her from walking, but with her sheer determination to discover this earth she compensated by rolling. She was a polite, cheerful and happy little girl and our "little princess". She loved her friends at school, teachers and her family. She loved music and would giggle at her favorite, Wheels on the Bus. Amberlee was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was always saying "Church". She loved to hear the kids sing and laugh. As she grew into a young woman, her problems seemed to multiply but her strength, grace and beauty shined only brighter. For the last eight years, part of her time was spent with the Michael and Mary Salls family, who lovingly helped care for her. They loved her and gave her two sisters, Jenny and Monique. They along with us marveled at her many accomplishments. She made gentle men out of her three strong brothers. She taught them many life lessons on compassion, service and love. Survivors include her parents Roger and Patti Ward; brothers, Tayler (Jessica), Lance (Ashly) and Preston; grandparents; Rachael Webb, Stanley and Emmalou Ward, and nephew, Saywer; many aunts, uncles and cousins who loved her dearly. Preceded in death by grandpa, F. George Webb. Funeral services for Amberlee will be held Saturday, October 1, 2005 at 12:00pm at the Willow Canyon 5th Ward, 1880 East 9800 South, Sandy, UT.
