LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Claudia (Dorman) Ambos, 67, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Wednesday, April 9, 2014, at her home of 29 years in Las Vegas, Nev., surrounded by loved ones, after a long struggle with illness.
Born in Piqua, on Jan. 31, 1947, to William R. and Mary Emily (Dunson) Dorman, Claudia was the second eldest of five siblings. She attended Capital University, Columbus, where she met her husband, Dale Scott Ambos, formerly of Jackson Center, with whom she had three children.
A talented musician and gifted teacher, Claudia used her God-given gifts in service at many Lutheran churches she attended during her lifetime. She taught Sunday School and lead several Bible Study groups. She touched many souls for Christ during her lifetime. She also wrote God-centered poetry.
As a homemaker, she recognized that her true mission field was her family, where she worked tirelessly, enduring the difficult challenges of a military wife, raising her children and passing to them her love of God, her love of family, her love of nature, and her love of reading.
She is survived by her husband of 44 years, Dale; her three children, Aaron Ambos, Jacob Ambos and Jessami Pastor, all of Las Vegas, Nev.; her sisters, Sherry Kilpatrick, of Warner Robins, Ga., Nina Hiser and Amy Swank, both of Piqua; her brother, William G. Dorman, of Piqua; her six grandchildren; and several nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews. She will be cremated.
A memorial service is set for Monday, May 12, at 2 p.m. at Central Christian Church in Las Vegas. Dale may be contacted at email@example.com.
