Carrie Ross, 71, Ephrata, good cook, loved dancing
Carrie E. Ross, 71, of Ephrata, passed away peacefully Thursday, April 19, 2012. Carrie was born July 15, 1940 in Reading.
She was the youngest daughter of Adam Ulrich and Emma M. Hoffman-Ulrich of Reading and sister to the late Corinne Ulrich-Ecenrode, Jennie Ulrich-Wanner and Leroy Ulrich.
In addition to her family, Carrie was loved by a countless number of friends and acquaintances. Many remember her as a feisty soul that always gave everyone a good laugh. She also loved many of life’s joys including cooking and dancing and sharing her love for both with the people surrounding her. Anyone who knew Carrie was quite certain they would always leave her home with a full stomach and a smile on their face. Attending community dances allowed Carrie to indulge her passion for meeting new people and of course busting a move on the dance floor. Her lively spirit will definitely be missed by many.
Surviving Carrie is her daughter: Ava Jean Ulrich-Earhart, son: George, husband of Melissa Ulrich, all of Denver; and sons: Gilbert Ross, of Reinholds; and Robert Ross, of Ephrata; and grandchildren: Jacqueline Ulrich, Beau Ulrich, Samantha Earhart, Rachel Earhart and Tyler Ross; and her great- granddaughter: Kira Walters.
Carrie’s family would like to extend their gratitude to the nurses and staff at Mount Hope Nazarene Retirement Community for the love and care they provided her. A special thank you to her nurse, Angie, who took her days off to spend time with Carrie. Thank you for your generosity and for making her last days here on earth special.
Memorial services will be held April 26 at Roseboro Stradling Funeral Home, 533 Walnut St., Denver. Interment will be private at the convenience of the family.
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in Carrie’s honor by donating to the Ephrata Area Social Services, 227 N. State St., Ephrata, PA, or by calling 733-0345.
Arrangements are being made by Roseboro Stradling Funeral and Cremation Services Inc., Denver. Online condolences can be given at roseborostradling.com.
