A Time to Reflect on the Life of
Sister Nakeyvia Ambers

Sister Nakeyvia Ambers was born in Monroe, Louisiana to Ms. Joyce Ambers and Brother Arthur L. Clark. God called his child home on Friday, March 13, 2020.

Nakeyvia accepted Christ as her personal savior at a very early age. She was baptized at Solomon Temple Baptist Church, under the leadership of Pastor James Roy Howard.

Nakeyvia attended Berg Jones Lane Elementary, Thomas Jefferson Junior High, and Ouachita Parish High Schools. Her favorite hobbies were singing, styling hair, and being a matchmaker. Nakeyvia was a hard worker and a loving and caring mother until her health failed.

Her favorite song was “I Am A Living Testimony”. Her favorite saying was always, “I am good because God is good,” and “it’s not over until God says it’s over.” Even though she had a hard battle with her sickness, with her faith in God, she always had a smile on her face and joy in her heart.

Preceding her in death was her paternal grandparents, Robert and Olivia Clark; her maternal grandfather, Willie Ambers; and her stepbrother, Devon Smith.

Memories of her will forever be with her son, Ja’Qorus Ambers; mother, Joyce Ambers; father, Arthur Clark (Denise); maternal grandmother, Lureatha Ambers; three brothers, Montrell Ambers (Brooks) of Monroe, Louisiana; Rodricous Dupree (Jackie) of Grand Prairie, Texas; and Desmond Ambers (Crystal) of Houston, Texas; three step-sisters, Youlanda Smith-Dauphine (Gilbert) of Monroe, Louisiana; Jacqueline Smith of Arlington, Texas; and Sandra Bush of Monroe, Louisiana, and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and many dear friends.
