Emily Elaine Ross, age 67, of Willcox, entered into rest Tuesday evening, April 24, 2018, at the Tucson Medical Center Hospice Peppi’s House, with her family surrounding her in love. Emily was born July 15, 1950, in Fort Walton, Florida, to Herschel Iva and Beatrice Mary Williams Ross.
Emily’s family moved to Texas when she was just a baby. She would spend most of her life in Texas, around a town named Temple. She graduated from high school and then found herself working mostly in the hospitality industry in housekeeping.
Emily had a vibrant personality and an endearing smile. She never met a stranger. Emily’s passion for life, and all the experiences that comes with it, helped her face many trials with a willingness to learn and overcome. She truly loved all those around her which enabled her to be patient in her trials and life lessons. Emily truly left her mark on so many people.
Emily is survived by: her sisters, Pamela Cotton (Ronald) and Buena Dollar; her nephews, Christopher Cotton, Danny Larsen (Julie) and Jed Cotton (Lisa); her niece, Echo Robbins (Matt); and numerous friends she considered family.
Family graveside services for Emily will be conducted at a later date in Temple, Texas, where she will be laid to rest next to her twin sister, Evelyn Ross.
