Your mother was a part of so many peoples lives. She will be missed. I loved being around her, always so full of life, so much fun and she could be a powerful force. Just know she will be missed by so many. I am sure she has all the angels swimming or arranging flowers. I still have a white dress from Greece, she gave me many years ago. I was in Ocean City MD all last week and just getting the news. Praying that you can remember all the happy times you shared together over the years. Emmie, Johnny, Jim, and Louie , you all helped her so much and she loved you so much. I will remember your family in my prayers.

I loved your Mother dearly. I grew up at the YMCA and she took me under her arm. I followed her all over the Y for many years. She was such big part of my childhood. I am praying for your family and the world was a better place because she was here.
Your mom, sister and grandmother, aunt taught me so much about living: "Just swim, Jane, swim!!" I could see her out of my chlorine-filled eyes walking along-side us all as we swam.
She gave me accountability and responsibility; my first job teaching young children, and answering to and being responsible to my elders. (I wish I'd been a better listener!)
Thank you all for sharing your mom and dad with me. Maybe, just maybe, I can pass the torch in memory of Eleanor Martin Ross!! jh
John, Louie, Jim, Don & Emmy - I was so sorry to hear about your mom and my wonderful Aunt Elanor! She was a wonderful person!

Please take solice in knowing that she is a peace......as we cerebrate her wonderful life. Please know that we as friends and family are praying for you!
