Civic leader. Ament, a graduate of the St. Joseph School of Nursing in Chicago, served on the committee that established Dyersville Hospital, St. Mary's Unit. She was also instrumental in opening Oak Crest Manor Nursing Home and served as its first director and head nurse. In addition to serving five years as a school nurse for the WESTERN DUBUQUE SCHOOL DISTRICT, she was a member of the National Catholic Rural Life Conference Board. Recognizing her work with the National Council of Catholic Women and as a member of the National Nominating Committee, Ament received the lactare medal and title of Papal Dame from the Pope. She assisted in establishing the Matthias M. Hoffman Library, remaining active in the Democratic Party, and for thirteen years supervised her own independent Shaklee distributorship serving hundreds of eastern Iowans.
