Joyce "Dottie" Reba Luttrell Rambo (March 2, 1934 - May 11, 2008)
Dottie Rambo got her start in Southern Gospel by writing songs and performing at revivals. She was eight years old when she first became interested in writing songs. By the age of 12, she had left home to sing full time. Governor Jimmie Davis of Louisiana heard her music and signed her to a writing contract when she was still in her teens. She married Buck Rambo when she was 16, and their daughter Reba Rambo was born when Dottie was 18. Reba began performing with the group when she was three years old and as she grew older, the Rambos, originally called the Gospel Echoes, grew to be one of the most popular family trios in gospel music.
