Dorothy was born Sept. 3, 1923, in Canon City, Colo., to Myrtle Ruth and Claude A. Collins. She was a longtime Fort Worth resident and was a graduate of Paschal High School. She married Warren D. Ambrose Jr., on Dec. 13, 1947. They were blessed with two children.

For many years, she served as director of volunteers at Fort Worth Children's Hospital, which later merged into the current Cook Children's Medical Center.
