ELKHART - Sharon A. Funk, age 73, of Elkhart, took her last breath on Earth and entered the arms of Jesus on Monday, January 20, 2014, at 11:45 pm. She was surrounded by her husband of 52 years, her 2 grandchildren and her daughter. Though this took our family by surprise, it was no surprise to Him. Sharon was born February 5, 1940, to the late Leonard and Dorothy (Price) Ambler. She was a 1959 graduate of LaPaz High School. On May 15, 1961, she married her high school sweetheart, John Funk in Elkhart. John survives along with their children, John I. Funk Jr. of Sebring, Florida, and Cindy (Alan) Mansfield of Goshen, Indiana. Also surviving are 2 grandchildren, Rachel (Josh) Moreland and Ryan (Chelsea) Russo, and 8 great-grandchildren, Brianna, Joshua, Benjamin, Nicholas, Natalie, Evan, Ethan and Hailey. Her brother, Robert "Clyde" Ambler of Goshen, survives, along with her half brothers, Larry Ambler of South Bend and Arlin Ambler of Goshen. She was preceded in death by her son, Tim Funk, in May of 1993, her half brother, David Ambler, and by a great-grandson, Timothy Moreland. Visitation will be held from 4-8 pm Friday, January 24, 2014, at Chapel Hill Funeral Home in Osceola. There will also be one hour of calling prior to the 3:30 pm funeral service on Saturday, January 25, 2014, at Chapel Hill, and interment will follow at Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens. Sharon was a homemaker for many years, and later was employed by Harold Zeigler Ford in Elkhart from 1998-2009 where she assisted with clerical duties in the offices. She enjoyed spending time outdoors in her garden and tending to her flowers. She also enjoyed caring for the wild animals around her home, especially the wild turkey she named "Turk." She was also involved with her high school class of '59, where she organized and invited members of the class monthly to gatherings and dinners. Sharon's generous and caring spirit and caring nature were shown to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, as she would drop whatever she was doing and help them in a moment's notice.
