Ambrose was born in Plymouth on September 23, 1926. He was the son of Lewis S. and LaVange Halt Schroeder.

On November 25, 1981, in Plymouth, Ambrose and Anna B. (Thomas) Schaefer were married.

An iron worker and a self-employed farmer, he was a member of Local 292 of South Bend.

He loved tinkering with his old farm tractor and working crossword puzzles. He very much enjoyed the presence of his grand and great-grandchildren.

He was a proud and supportive member of the American Legion Post, LaPaz, No. 385, the Plymouth Masonic Kilwinning Lodge No.149 and the Shriners Valley of St. Joe, South Bend.

Three grandchildren: John and Tracy Williams; Tim and Kelli Stump and Sarah Stump, all of Plymouth, survive, together with three great-grandsons: Jonathon, Jordyn and Jacob Williams.

A sister, Shirley and Carl Alberts, Plymouth, and two brothers, Don and Erelene Schroeder, Rhinelander, Wis., and Gene Schroeder, Appleton, Wis., survive as well along with numerous nieces and nephews.
