Florence Isabella Ross (nee Goodland), in her 95th year, passed away peacefully in her sleep at Cottonwoods Care Centre on 15 April 2017. Predeceased in 2010 by her husband James Edgar Ross and her daughter Carolyn Gail Ross in 2007, Florence leaves behind her loving sons William Ernest and James Douglas Ross, granddaughters Jessica and Jenna, grandsons Michael Dyson and Walter Ross, great-granddaughter Isobel and many nieces and nephews. To the Chan and the Au families, Florence was like a second mother and she treated them as a part of her own family.
The epitome of style and grace, Florence will be remembered always for her love of fashion and her extraordinary skills with a needle. A masterful seamstress and teacher of her craft, she lovingly sewed wedding dresses and graduation gowns for friends and family, created beautiful baby quilts, and sewed much of her own and her husband’s wardrobe.
So many thanks to Audrey and Carol from Home Instead Senior Care, to Kelowna General Hospital, especially to Colleen, and to Cottonwoods for their splendid care. Your service and support will never be forgotten.
