Yorgensen-Meloan-Londeen Funeral Home in Manhattan
Paxico, KS

Amber Marie Heigert, 41, of Paxico, Ks, passed away at her home following a brief battle with cancer on Saturday January 21, 2023, surrounded by her family.

Amber was born October 10, 1981, in Manhattan, KS to Daniel and Penny Zeller. She attended schools in Paxico, Baileyville, and Seneca, KS. She graduated from Nemaha Valley High School in 2000. Following graduation, she attended Cloud County Community College.

The 1998 county fair is where Amber met the love of her life, Anthony Heigert. They were united in marriage on August 11, 2007. Two children, Henry and Madelyn, were born to this union.

In 2000 Anthony and Amber purchased their family farm. Amber spent her days doing exactly what she loved, raising her two children. Her children brought so much joy to her life, she was always there at their class parties, sporting events and school plays. She always had the biggest smile when talking about her children's achievements. Amber also was a substitute rural mail carrier for 10 years while also helping run the family beef cattle operation.

Amber loved cooking and baking; her husband says her favorite hobby was grocery shopping. Amber loved to host her friends and family at her home. She enjoyed the outdoors. Any given day you could find Amber in the cattle barn, petting the baby calves, spending time going on gator rides, camping, and playing cards with her family.
