A most virtuous and loving woman, Rachel Haney VanAmburg, aged 83, went to meet her Savior Jesus on May 10, 2023. She was born June 4, 1939, in Orange, CA, to Ivon and Oneta Pike. She was raised in Southern California and attended John Brown University where she met and married Sheldon VanAmburg, her partner for 63 years.
Rachel came to Lincoln, KS, with Sheldon to farm with his family in 1959, where they became involved in church activities that lasted throughout her life. She was a loving, considerate, and encouraging helpmate to her family, friends and community. She had a wonderful talent for music, helping her congregation by singing and playing piano on Sundays. She closely followed and assisted several missionary families, many of whom she knew personally, around the world. She continually praised God for her wonderful life and family. Her smile was beautiful and infectious, always readily given to everyone. We will miss her loving touch, radiant smile and blessings bestowed.
Rachel was preceded in death by her parents, Ivon and Oneta Pike, and her sister, Ivona Pickering. She is survived by her husband, Sheldon; daughter and son-in-law, Jana VanAmburg and Brett Frazier; daughter and son-in-law, Amanda and Steven Crist; grandchildren, Jennifer (Jeremy) Davidson, Lindsay (Rylan) Hincher, and Allison Crist; and one great grandson, Elias Davidson.
A celebration of life service will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, June 3, 2023 at Lincoln Community Church.
