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.
