Dorothy Virginia Ross, 93

Passed On: 07/17/2014

Funeral ServiceLife CelebrationDorothy Virginia (King) Ross was born on April 20, 1921 in Richland township, Pennsylvania. She passed away on July 17, 2014 in Lake Placid, Florida.
She was the eldest of five children. Dottie grew up in Emlenton, Pennsylvania. She attended Slippery Rock University in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania, where she was majoring to become a physical education teacher. In 1942 while attending the college, a group of Army Air Corps (pre Air Force) pilots were at the school for some training in the area. The Dean of the school asked some of the girls if they would be willing to be escorted to a school dance by the pilots. Dot was matched up with a young man by the name of Charlie Ross. A year later, they were married on May 13, 1943 in St Petersburg, Pennsylvania. They had three sons, Charles R. Ross, Jr., David M. Ross, and Mark A. Ross. She was preceded in death by her husband, Charlie, her parents and one sister and two brothers. She is survived by her children, Charles "Rod" and Barbara Ross, Dave and Janet Ross, Mark and Rhoda Ross, her youngest brother Kenneth King, her grandchildren, Dawn and Keats Wade, Dave and Diana Ross, and Chuck and JoAnna Ross, as well as great-grandchildren Devin, Kyle, Logan, Tori, Abigail, Melia, Emilie, and Annika Ross; and Riley and Colin Wade.
Dottie worked as a chief operator with the C&P Telephone Company in La Plata, Maryland. After she and her husband, Charlie, had retired, they bought a 5th wheel trailer and for four years enjoyed their winters in Florida and summers in Pennsylvania. After Charlie had passed way, she still continued to spend her winters in Florida for a few more years. During that period of time, her brother Ken and his wife, Elaine, would come to visit and they would scour the beaches of Florida to find seashells. In 2005, she flew out to Colorado to spend a month with them and they had a wonderful time gathering geodes (rocks) taking them back to her brother's shop to cut and polish them so she could make them into necklaces.
Dot was an avid sports fan. She loved going to her grandsons' football games. When her oldest grandson, Dave, graduated from college, she was crushed - no more football games. You could hear her voice loud and clear yelling at the referees and coaches about the plays they had called. Dot loved to watch NASCAR with her son, Dave, on television. She was a fan of the Washington Redskins, Pittsburg Steelers, Baltimore Orioles, and Pittsburg Pirates. Dot enjoyed eating fresh fruits and vegetables with a good potato chip on the side.
In January of 2010, she went to Florida to be with Mark and Rhoda. During that time, she had emergency surgery for a hip replacement that led to severe complications. For six months, she was continuously in either the hospital, nursing home, or rehab center, as well as having additional surgery due to complications. After going through all of this in January of 2011, she became a resident of Southern Lifestyle Assisted Living Facility in Lake Placid, Florida, so they could help care for her medical needs. Mark and Rhoda were her constant companions, keeping a good eye on her care.
In May of this year, Rod and his fiancé, Barbara, flew to Florida to be married on Mark and Rhoda's garden patio so Dot could be a part of the ceremony. Mark and Rhoda's dog, "Mojo," made it clear he was the groomsman.
While she was in Florida, she became very close friends with Marge Holbrook and her daughter, Laura. Laura had a baby named Grace, and Dottie enjoyed their times together.
Dorothy was very gifted in crafts: making candy, quilting, and sewing. In her later years, she excelled in making beautiful etched greeting cards. She enjoyed nature, watching a beautiful sunset, or just walking around the yard to see the flowers or whatever she could find. She shared with her great grandchildren the love of seashells, flowers, watching birds, and card making. Dottie loved spending time with her family and friends.
