Henrietta MacDonald Ross

August 29, 1924 - February 12, 2017

After a short stay at Belleville General Hospital on Sunday February 12, 2017. Etta "Effie" Ross (nee Mackenzie), at the age 92. Born in Chipperfield Saskatchewan, she and her beloved husband, the late George Ross, raised their children in Fort William (now Thunder Bay), lived in Scarborough and finally retired to Milford in 1983. Dearly loved mother of Carol Cooke (Mike) of Ottawa, Don Ross (Heather) of Milford and Stuart Ross of Milford. Proud grandma and “bizzus” to Matt (Angela), Patrick (Sadie), Jenna (J.L.), Ben (Natalie), Becky (Patrick), Kirstie and Malcolm and great “bizzus “of Owen, Hailey, Maizey, Cooper, Nolan, Reilly and Everett. Dear sister of the late Norm, Mary, Jessie Mac, Ken, and Peter, and remembered fondly by their families. All who met her were inspired by her propensity to find great joy in the simple things that surround us. Any who were troubled or were suffering found themselves healed in spirit by her warm loving kindness. Even in her latter years when she laughed it was the laughter of a young girl. All who have known her are the richer for it. She was truly a special person. At Effie's request there will be no funeral service or visitation. Cremation has taken place. A gathering of family and friends will take place in Milford in the spring. In recognition of the excellent care she received, donations to the Belleville General or Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundations would be appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to the Whattam Funeral Home, 33 Main Street, Picton. whattamfuneralhome.com
