Eunice Mildred Ross
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Eunice Ross on Friday, January 23, 2015 in the Charleswood Care Centre, in Winnipeg, Manitoba at the age of 91 years.
Born on September 11, 1923 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Eunice is survived by her sister Doreen; daughters Darlene Ross-Cook (David Cook) of Calgary, Alberta, Kim Ross (Dennis Engel) of Winnipeg; and grandsons Marcus Engel of Edmonton, Alberta, and Jordan Engel of Winnipeg. Eunice was predeceased by her parents, John P. and Lillian (Pearson) Bourke of Winnipeg; as well as brother John of Headingly, Manitoba. She was also predeceased by her husband, John Evan Ross on June 18, 1968.
Eunice married returning soldier John Ross, after the Second World War. They made their home in the Winnipeg community of Woodhaven, in a home skillfully built by John. After his early passing, she rose to the challenge of raising her young daughters on her own. Eunice’s strong friendships with her neighbors in Woodhaven provided her with great comfort during the years of raising her daughters. Eunice’s children fondly remember their summers at the family cottage at Lac du Bonnet, also built by John. The happiness and success of her children and grandchildren gave Eunice her greatest joy. In her later years, she enjoyed the community of friends in the Metropolitan Kiwanis Courts in St. James. After a recent illness, she moved to the Charleswood Care Centre.
A private family funeral service will be held at a later date.
The family wishes to extend thanks to the kind care and friendship of the staff of the Metropolitan Kiwanis Courts and also to the staff of the Charleswood Care Centre.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Manitoba branch of the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 6 Donald Street, Suite 200 Winnipeg, MB, R3L 0K6.
