Blenheim Community Funeral Home
Saturday July 7, 2018
Visitation will begin at 2:00 p.m. and will continue
throughout the afternoon and evening.

It is with profound sadness that the family of Amy Mae (Rumble) Zoumboulis announce her passing on Wednesday July 4, 2018 at the Chatham Kent Hospice with her family and friends by her side.

Amy was born on May 1, 1973 to Tony and Gail Rumble of Blenheim. She is survived by her pride and joy Constandinos (Costa) Nikos Zoumboulis and his dad Nick Zoumboulis.  Also survived by her partner, Steven Blakeney and his children Meredith, Rhys and Evan, by her brother Ian and Rhonda Rumble and their children Klare, Drew and Grace of Blenheim and by her sister Emily Rumble of Toronto.

Predeceased by her grandparents Edith and Leighton Rumble and Elmer and Cecile Myers. She will be greatly missed by a large number of aunts, uncles and cousins both from the Rumble and Myers families and a huge network of friends.

Amy played many roles: daughter, sister, companion, cousin, co- worker, and friend but her most cherished role was that of a mother.

Amy was a strong, independent, caring, hard worker and she spent the last 10 years working as the Supervisor of Housekeeping and Linen at the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance where she was adored and admired by all the staff. She had a big heart and supported every request from every department with kindness and compassion.

She loved Friday Night Table, fancy beads, Nickelback, a strong hug, a kiss on the lips, late nights, whiskey, loud music, arriving late to the party and was never one to miss out on anything. She truly was a one of a kind gem.

Amy is perhaps best remembered for her huge, bright smile and her infectious laugh that could brighten any room. She was full of life, spirit and positivity right until the very end.

Family and friends are invited to the visitation at the Blenheim Community Funeral Home on Saturday July 7, 2018 at 2:00 pm and will continue throughout the afternoon and evening.

We invite all of you that have been touched by Amy to join us in the celebration of her life on Sunday at 2:00 p.m. at St. Mary’s Hall in Blenheim where friends will share their fondest memories of Amy.  On Monday Amy’s immediate family will gather as she is laid to rest at Evergreen Cemetery.

Friends wishing to remember Amy with a memorial donations are asked to consider the Chatham-Kent Hospice, the Kissin Kuzzins initiative to assist local families in need or Sick Kids Hospital.

Words cannot define this beautiful soul. I loved hanging with her. Always a good story, laugh and hug. She will be missed dearly and has been taken too soon. So grateful that she lived life to the fullest and smiled broadly each and every day! XoX RIP Amus Mae.

Amy’s incredible positive energy, her passion for people and her smile were all traits that made Amy the wonderful person to work with. She used humour to break the ice and would often startle myself when walking by my door yelling “Hi Dave!!”, as she would laugh at my reaction. As anyone who knew Amy, they enjoyed having her in their company and always said “Hello” in passing. I am blessed to have worked with Amy and to have known her as a friend.

Our deepest sympathy and condolences on your loss of your mother, daughter, sister, aunt and partner Amy. Amy was a warm and wonderful person and although it has been a few years since we've seen each other we'd always pickup right where we left off. We will always remember her beautiful smile.

My most sincere condolences on your loss. Amy was a Member of the OHHA for several years. I had the pleasure of meeting her a couple of times when she attended our annual conference. We will miss her smiling face and bubbly adorable personality. I've posted a tribute to her on the OHHA Facebook page. May she rest in peace. Wendy Boone-Watt on behalf of the OHHA.

To the Zoumboulis and Rumble family; We send our condolences. In friendship, from the Jackson Seed Staff

Gail and Tony - this is something I wrote... I hope it helps. I just don’t know what else to say. Come to Colchester any time. Sue Thinking if you all on this day of remembrance and love. I wrote this and hope it helps ... July 2018 A Last Goodbye . . . The time must come to all of us, to say a last goodbye. To turn away from those we love and set our sights on high. It can be such a trying journey, as these last steps we take To where we'll find eternal peace and our earthly tethers' break. I tried my best to linger on, in the warmth of your embrace. For I knew my going would leave much more, than just an empty space. I do not want to see you here, head bowed in sad despair Rise up and look into your heart and you will find me there. You will find me in the rustling leaves, the dew upon the lawn. You will find me in the rising sun, as it peels away the dawn. You will find me in a gentle breeze or in the pouring rain. You will find me if you care to look..... again and again and again. I do not leave you with regret, for I have lived my life full well. And I gift to you fond memories, and stories rich to tell. Let you hearts heal with this lasting thought......the last I can recall.... Because of you and your love for me, I know I had it all. Forever yours....

Amy could light up the room no matter the situation or purpose of the gathering. She was a clown, a bright spirit and an inspiration to anyone so fortunate to have known her. I had the honor of being part of her wonderful family for many years. She will be greatly missed and forever loved .

Dear Rumble Family, Please accept my sincerest condolences on your loss of Amy. I haven't seen her since we were kids and I played with all of them when Aunt Sue and then my mom and Carl lived behind you, but I remember always being in awe of Amy who was two years older than I was. She was always so fun to be around. She was taken way too soon. May your memories comfort you during this difficult time. With deepest sympathies, Dawn Pickering Ottawa, ON
