Amber Willene Tate, of Gonzales, passed away Friday, April 17, 2020 at the age of 95. She was born September 24, 1924 in Mullin, Texas to William Ward and Cora Lucille Farmer Perkins. She married Milton Gordon Tate on May 15, 1948. Amber Willene was a member of the Eastern Star and the First United Methodist Church in Gonzales, and a past member of the Gonzales Bridge Club and DAR.

Amber Willene graduated from Goldthwaite High School. From there, she went into a career in banking, where she worked as a teller. She also worked at Warm Springs in Ottine and worked part time at the Gonzales Memorial Museum, after retiring from Wells Fargo Bank. Amber Willene Tate, in one word, feisty. She always had a beautiful smile. She was a hardworking, independent, do-it-herself, kind of woman. Growing up with four brothers, and being the only girl, she had an abundance of strength that she carried throughout her lifetime. She was quick to refuse help, especially when it came to mowing her lawn. Even in her later age, she would be seen push-mowing her grass, mower in one hand, and walking cane in the other. She loved her yard and growing flowers. She also enjoyed the simple things in life, such as traveling and quilting for her family. Amber had a right-hand pup, Sparky, and the two were inseparable. They’d often be found enjoying a cheeseburger and fries or a Dairy Queen ice cream together, Sparky always getting the bigger half. The two were truly best companions, and always side by side.

Amber Willene Tate is survived by her son, Ronnie Tate and wife Shari of Gonzales, grandchildren, Stephen Tate, Christopher Tate, Jennifer Tate, Amanda Johnson, Julie Cavasoz, great-grandchildren, Joshua Johnson, Colbie Pullin, Tinley Tate, and Taylor Tate, and her adored side-kick, Sparky. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, daughter, Beverley Ann Shatto, son, Dennis Ward Tate, brothers, Jack Perkins, Wilbur Perkins, Carl Perkins, and Bill Perkins.
