Yvonne Rose Ross

ROSS, Yvonne Rose It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved wife and mother on Tuesday, June 8, 2004 in Port Alberni, B.C. Born in Victoria, BC on February 2, 1939, she moved to Port Alberni as a young child with her parents. She is predeceased by her parents, James and Olive Carlos, 2 brothers: James Jr. and Leonard, sisters-in-law Audrey Thompson and Grace Carlos, and her mother-in-law Elizabeth Ross. Left to mourn her is Daniel H., her beloved husband of 46 years, her four children: Cindy (Ryan) Salmon, Daniel Jr. (Carol), Glen (Rhonda) and Lisa Ross, grandchildren: Michael (Crystal), Joel, Holly, Steven, Derek, Bryce, Nikki, Cody and Joshua, sister Linda (Laurie) Jelasco, sister-in-law Lou Carlos, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. Yvonne trained at Malaspina College as a long term aid and worked at Trillium Lodge in Parksville and then at the Alberni Lodge prior to retiring in 1993. She took great pride in both her work and family life, and both benefitted from her compassion, sense of humour and love for others. A service to remember Yvonne is being held at the graveside at the Greenwood Cemetery on Josephine Street in Port Alberni at 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 15, 2004. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made in Yvonne’s name to either the Canadian Cancer Society, #29-3550 Johnston Rd., Port Alberni, BC V9Y 7X1, the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC & Yukon, 1212 W.
