She was blessed to have four grandchildren, Renee’ (Jeff Prehm), Justin (Wendy), John Myers Wood III (Melissa), Rebecca (Jeffrey Nighswonger).They gave her 16 great grandchildren and 1 great, great grandchild. She was very involved with all of us.

Ross was always there when we needed her, offering her support, advice, and comfort. She was a great person to have in your corner, because she would always stand up for what was right and fight for what she believed in.

She had many passions and interests in life. She loved to cook, to travel, to read, to shop and to garden. She had a flare for fashion and decor’. Her favorite thing to do was spend time with family and friends sharing her incredible stories.

Ross will be forever missed.
