Thelma Ross

Thelma Ross (nee Miller), January 31, 2017, Age 100.

Beloved wife of the late Sol Ross. Dear mother of Joyce Boonshaft and the late Carol Sue Friedman. Loving grandmother of Stephen, Sherri and Eric Boonshaft, Scott, Mark, Michael, Lisa and Robert Friedman. Dear great grandmother of twenty-one. Beloved sister of the late Morris Miller, Ruth Gold, Florence Siegel, Alice Koplowitz, Eve Levis and Gerald Miller. Our dear aunt, great aunt and friend. 

Thelma worked for the Veterans Administration in Washington DC, did volunteer work at Jewish Hospital in the Heart Station taking EKG’s on patients, and later in life became a real estate agent who earned her way into the “Million Dollar Club”. She was a wonderful gardener, baker and poet. She lived independently in her two story home until age 99 ½.  She will be remembered for her kindness and terrific sense of humor. 

A special thanks to Lisa Friedman and Gerri Binion for their love and support.

Private family services were held. Contributions in her memory may be made to the Carol Sue Ross Friedman Endowment Fund, C/O St. Louis Children’s Hospital, P.O. Box 955423, St. Louis, MO, 63195-5423.
