Amber Charise Telleson

October 11, 1982 — September 24, 2023

   Amber Telleson, beloved mother, daughter, sister and friend passed from this life on Sunday September 24, 2023, at the age of 40 after a long battle with her health. She is survived by her children: Jayson Jensen (father Keith Jensen); Angela Green; and Jasper Green (father Terry Green). Her Parents: Stanley Buchanan (Laurel); and Merle Engle (Terri). Her siblings: Alexander (BreAnne); Keenyon; and Gina Tia Buchanan. And her Cousin’s: Brandon; Derek (Samantha); Mandy (Joshua); Cassandra (Preston); Alexis (Steven); Ainsley and Micheal. 
She was preceded in death by her mother Holly Telleson Engle, her grandparents: Jay and Gloria Telleson, and her Uncles: Robert and Scott Telleson.

   Amber was a lover of the arts. In Junior High she entered a nation wide poetry contest and had one of her poems selected to be published. While attending Gunnison High School she excelled in music and participated in Band as well as Choir. In Band she played the Flute and was selected to be first chair. She was also selected to sing in “Cantus!”, a show Choir that required a high level of talent to join and loved singing with her close friends. She also loved the theater and was cast in High School productions,“The King and I” and “Bye Bye Birdie”. She also assisted in stage management for “Don Quixote”

   Amber loved her children more than anything in the whole world. There wasn’t anything she wouldn’t do to make their lives better, even if it meant that she went without. 

   Amber also loved animals of any kind but loved her cats most of all. Because of her, many cats had wonderful, love filled lives. 

   To many, Amber was a dear friend. She was always there to talk to and was accepting of everyone. She always seemed to find the good in things and would do her best to cheer someone up when they were down. 

   Amber was studious and always enjoyed learning. She had various jobs that required learning on the fly but enjoyed her last job working for the IRS most of all. This job filled her with pride and enthusiasm and she looked forward to the the opportunities it had for her in the future.

   Amber, you will be sorely missed. Find peace now as you are laid to rest.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, October 6, 2023 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Lindquist’s Ogden Mortuary, 3408 Washington Blvd.



Hi Momma. 


Never in a million years did I imagine I would ever get the honor of writing such a powerful message about you, momma. About how amazing of a mother you were. About how strong you were. About your radiant smile that could outshine the sun. If you taught me anything, it’s how to accept challenges like these. You also taught me how to write like you, so I hope you will like what I have to say.


My mother, Amber Charise Telleson, was the smartest woman I got the pleasure of knowing. Every time I had some random, nonsensical question about life, I would pop into my mom’s office and ask her. Of course, she always gave me the same look. I would give anything to see her give me that look again. We spent as much time together as we could over the summer, traveling together to the edges of Utah so she could share her passions with me and introduce me to so many amazing people who loved her. She loved to watch her Star Trek shows with me and Bryan on the couch, laughing together and sharing a bowl after a long day of work. Despite how much pain she was in, she always made time for us to go thrifting, to the Aquarium, or up into the mountains with the side by side. She did everything for her children, even her fluffier ones. Maddi was her pride and joy, so was Molly. I know that she isn't in pain anymore. She finally has what she wanted, a world without suffering that’s full of all of her cats in a big, beautiful garden of yellow roses and sun. And when Maddi passes, Momma will be the first one she sees to guide her over the rainbow bridge to join her in eternal bliss.


I know how much you struggled, Momma. I know how much pain you felt in the last few years of your life, both mentally and physically. The first few years of your life weren’t all that great either. I know how much you missed your family, your mom. All any of us could ever hope is that you were able to reconcile with her on the other side, you both misunderstood each other so much. I hope the first face you saw, however, was your Grandma Telleson. I hope she hugged you tight and told you how much she missed you, because I know how much you missed her. I miss her too. I asked her to take care of you, to hold you tight and keep you close. Don’t be scared, Momma. You and I both know Grandma would never break a promise like that.


The lessons my mom has taught me, the skills I shall carry with me, will stay with me forever. I have learned my love from you, Momma. I know that if you would want anything, it would be for me to love myself the way you loved me. The way you loved every soul you encountered. No matter how much anyone put you through, the rocks and challenges you faced, you loved them. Your heart knew no limits, you had infinite compassion and patience even for the worst people. I tried to tell you to let people go, to let them fall off your shoulders. But you reminded me to have consideration, to avoid jumping to a conclusion like that. I promise, I will continue to follow your message. I will lead my life with the same heart on my sleeve that you had, and I will never let it go. So many people will mourn your absence. So many already do. My world will never be normal again, but for you, I will adjust to a new normal. I promise. Everything will be okay. Just like we planned.


Amber Charise Telleson was a one in a million kind of woman. She was strong, intelligent, and the most wonderful and supportive mother any of us could’ve asked for. She will be missed so dearly. I, among the rest of my siblings, will forever be broken by your passing. But we will adapt. We may shatter, we may crack, but we will hold each other together and keep each other from falling apart. Just as you did in life. We love you, Momma. I love you, Momma. Forever and always. Till my dying breath. 


I love you, Momma. I love you. I love you so much. I know you’ll be watching over us and your sweet baby, Maddi Moo Moo. I love you.


I love you, Mom. You will forever be my sunshine, my light in the darkness. My flashlight. My very soul. I love you, Momma. I’ll miss you so much. 


We all will.
