William George Ambler Obituary
HENDERSONVILLE-William George Ambler, died October 13, 2014 at his home in Hendersonville, NC. He was known affectionately as 'Bill'. A resident of a wonderful retirement setting in Hendersonville (Fletcher Park Inn) since 2003, Bill was born on February 25, 1922 in the beautiful small town of Wilder, Vermont to Carl and Lora Ambler.
At the age of four, Bill became very ill with bronchial pneumonia. The family doctor had given up on him and told his mother there was nothing he could do for the child with medications. His mother prayed and put onions on the stove twenty-four hours a day and also placed a garlic poultice on his chest which loosened the chest congestion. His fever broke and he became well. His mother praised God for His healing power.
Bill met his future wife Ruthe while attending Atlantic Union College and were married in 1943. After preparing for church ministry, he began is ministry in Paris, Tennessee. He and Ruthe subsequently serviced the Lord in Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, New York, Michigan and Iowa. Bill and Ruthe retired initially in Andrews, NC from 1984 to 2003 and then moved to Hendersonville, NC. The Lord blessed Bill and Ruthe with seventy-one years of marriage. Ten years after entering the ministry, Bill had the privilege of baptizing his father. The family circle was now complete in Christ.
Bill and Ruthe had four children, Sharon, Don, Bob and Beth. Bill is preceded in death by his parents Carl and Lora Ambler, and sister's Silvia and Mildred.
Today we bear witness to the fact that the Lord in His goodness brought into our midst, into the church, a person whose Christ-like influence, whose dedicated talents and selfless love for everyone, has had a great impact on the lives of all who knew him.
