Harriett R. Garman Ambrose
February 20, 1933 - November 23, 2012
On November 23 our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend left us very peacefully to be with her Lord and Savior.
She was born the youngest daughter of Russell and Vergie Garman in Caldwell, Idaho, and was raised on the family homestead in Wilder, Idaho. She graduated from Wilder High School in 1950, and then graduated from the College of Idaho in 1954. After teaching for one year in Mountain Home, Idaho, she married Jene Ambrose at Golden Gate Baptist Church in Wilder, on June 11, 1955. They recently celebrated their 57th anniversary.
Harriett was a devout and dedicated Christian, worshipping and serving in many positions at the First Baptist Church of Ogden, Utah, and later at Grace Bible Ministries. She was a dedicated Prayer Warrior and had a huge heart for mission work. Harriett was a very active member of Church Women United, PEO, and an avid supporter of Habitat for Humanity. She was honored by Church Women United as a Valiant Woman, a distinction of which she was very proud. She was an active member of PEO Chapter P and held many offices, including two terms as president. One of Harriett's greatest passions was for her work in American Baptist Women's Ministries. She was a guiding force in the operation of the ABW ministry, servicing locally and at the state level where she served two terms as Utah State President and other offices.
Harriett is survived by her husband, Jene, her son Jeff (April Burbidge), her daughters Stephanie Woolworth (Tim), and Heather Ambrose and her husband John Robbins. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Desiree (Jake Glover) and Luke (Stacy) Woolworth all of Utah. Her brother Houston Garman (Nadine) of Wilder, sister Helen Karn of Boise and sister Hester Tuttle (Gail) of Homedale, as well as Jene's siblings, many nieces and nephews and countless friends.
A memorial service was held at Leavitt's Mortuary, 836 36th Street, Ogden, Utah, at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday, November 28, 2012.
In lieu of flowers, family suggests donations to PEO, SHARE Inc., Church Women United or Habitat for Humanity.
