Ross, Millie (Damiani)* - Pittston  
Our beloved mother, Millie (Damiani) Ross, 97, passed away peacefully Sunday, June 19, 2016, at her home with her family gathered around her, and lovingly holding her grandchildren's hands. She was the widow of Charles G. Ross Sr., who died July 7, 2007. We are blessed that, until three years ago, she was active and engaged in all aspects of her family's life. Born on Aug. 26, 1918, Mrs. Ross was a daughter of the late Gaetano and Maria (Dimino) Damiani. She was a graduate of Jenkins Township High School and a proud graduate of Marywood College. She taught at Moosic High School and then Riverside High School, and was chairperson of the Commercial Department for 45 years, retiring in 1985. She was an inspiration and mentor to many students long after graduation, and they, in turn, cherished her concern for them long thereafter. For many years after her retirement, an award was given to the top senior student in the Commercial Department in her name. Over the years, she gave freely of her time, including countless hours donated to charitable organizations. She quietly supported all of her late husband's business ventures, going so far as to open a pizza stand where the Route 315 Perkins Restaurant now operates. Millie made all of the pizza and sauces herself. She was a voracious reader and was never afraid to try new things. She demonstrated great physical courage. She hunted with her brothers for all kinds of game, large and small, and was known to be able to shoot the head off a rattle snake from 20 yards away. Her favorite pastimes were working in her vegetable garden and being with her family. She had a deep love for the countryside in Old Boston, always delighting in feeding the birds and wildlife in her backyard, especially her "bears on the hill". Throughout her life, our mother was a constant inspiration and source of profound love and wisdom for her family and friends. She guided us with steadfast love and thoughtful insight about the world around us. She had a firm belief in the importance of family, and the nurturing, support and perspective it provides. She was kind and generous and pure of heart. She left us loving memories that will last forever. Mrs. Ross is survived by her daughter, Charlene Ross Sammon and her husband, Patrick W. Sammon; and by her son, Charles G. Ross Jr., Esq., and his wife, Mary T. Ross. She is also survived by six grandchildren, Charles Ross Sammon, Esq., and his wife, Kara Sammon, Margaret Sammon Parsons, Ph.D., and her husband, Patrick Parsons and Mary Ross Sammon, M.D., and her husband, Andrew Quirk; as well as by Kathryn Ross, Charles G. Ross III and Madelyn Ross; and by three great-grandchildren, Lilly Sammon, Harry Quirk and Charlotte "Charlie" Quirk, and by many loved and loving nieces, nephews and cousins. She was preceded in death by her husband, Charles G. Ross Sr.; by her sister, Tanina Ann Gubitosa; and brothers Raymond, Gerard, Joseph and Ernest; and by infant twins Antonio and Cosmino. Our family wants to express its heartfelt thanks to Dr. James Bruno and the staff of Pittston Medical Associates, as well as to Golden Care Home Health Agency, especially nurse practitioner Lori Jordan. We also want to recognize Debra Bryk and Tammi Poling for their kindness and affection for our mother in helping her with her daily home tasks. She was a life time member of Mt. Carmel Church, St. Joseph Mauriello Parish, Pittston. She had a deep faith and would appreciate a prayer in her remembrance. Private funeral services, including a Mass of Christian Burial, will be held at the convenience of the family. Funeral arrangement have been entrusted to the Anthony Recupero Funeral Home, West Pittston.
