Obituary from the Hogg Funeral Home & Crematory website, March 2010:

Wicomico: Bessie Delton Ambrose, went peacefully to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Tuesday May 25, 2010 at the age of 90. She was born in Wicomico, Virginia April 17, 1920 to the late Alonzo and Leo Croswell Ambrose. Bessie graduated from Achilles High School in 1939. She was a lifelong member of Providence Baptist Church, served as Sunday School teacher, choir member and counselor of the Young Women Auxiliary. She retired in 1970 after 39 years of service from Litton Printing Company formerly Newport News Business Forms and Sturgis Printing. Bessie loved good food and socializing, enjoyed being with her family and friends and had a wonderful smile that could light up a room. She was a devoted and wonderful sister and aunt, whose graciousness and wit informed and enriched us all. We were touched by her generosity and extraordinary spirit and we will be inspired by her memory forever.
Her parents; brother, Woodrow Ambrose and five sisters, Bertha Gamache, Daisy Nuttall, Catherine Hogge, Haley Coates and Lolita Jenkins preceded her in death.
She is survived by:
Her devoted sister: Joyce A. Hogge
And a host of nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews and special niece Annette Gamache, cousins, including a special cousin Gertrude Burks and 2 very good friends, Brenda Heffington and Linda Templeman.
