Jane E. Ross

Jane Eleanor Ross (McCarthy), passed away in Trinity, FL, on April 20, 2022, at age 95. Born in New Castle, Pennsylvania to Charles and Julia McCarthy, she later moved to Columbus, Ohio. There she met her husband, Carl Ross, and shared 75 years of love, laughter, and life, until his recent passing.

Jane was a full-time and loving mom of five children for many years and a proud Girl Scout leader, before entering nursing school in her early 40’s. Becoming a nurse was her aspiration and she was able to fulfill this dream of caring for others until retirement. Jane was an avid reader, and enjoyed traveling, volunteering, hosting dinner parties, playing cards with friends, and meeting new ones.

Jane is survived by her three daughters, Cheryl Crawford (Thomas), Maureen Morelli (Frank), and April (M.C.) Paul (Jeff) and son, Michael Ross (Karen). Jane was preceded in death by her spouse, Carl, and son Joseph Ross (Barbara).

She was greatly loved by her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and her dear friends.

A celebration of life will be held on Friday, May 6, 2022 at 10:00am at St. Joseph’s Cemetery Chapel in Lockbourne, OH.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Gulfside Hospice of Pasco County.

    To all of Jane and Carl's kids, I'm so sorry, Ted left me a message today. I met Jane when I started working for Carl at MCMC. She was so loving and funny. She was like a mom to me a lot, giving me advice. Kept telling my daughter we got to go see Carl and Jane it's been years. Never ever got to but I thought of them alot. They were most loving and kindness people I've ever met. They'll be up there dancing in Heaven with my granddaughter and brother who passed in 20 and 21. All my prayers and love to all.

    Both Jane and Carl were awesome volunteers at Inniswood Metro Gardens for several years during my tenure as Volunteer Coordinator. They were so fun and pleasant - always smiling, willing to do whatever we needed. Both seemed to enjoy working with our childrens’ programming and were naturals with the kids. I was fortunate to be invited to their lovely home for lunch a few times where the hours and conversation flowed freely. When I moved into our 1848 home, Jane gifted me an antique pair of carding tools. She said they fit my house’s age more than hers. They are still prominently displayed on a living room shelf and every time I dust, I remember Jane and Carl fondly. My sincere condolences on your loss, but what well-lived lives they both led.
