Doris Althea Taylor Ross passed away peacefully during the early morning hours of Christmas Eve; just weeks shy of her 98th birthday.
Doris was born January 18, 1913 in Chester, Utah. In 1915, Doris's family moved by covered wagon to the Uintah Basin. Only two years old at the time, Doris was in charge of holding the family's cat during the long journey.
Known as Dode during her youth, Doris attended grade school in Lapoint and graduated from Uintah High School.
In 1934, Doris married Keith Ross and together they had four sons. In 1941, Keith and Doris moved into the home they built on 500 South in Vernal where they lived the remainder of their lives.
Doris worked in the accounting department of Moon Lake Electric for many years. After retiring from Moon Lake at age 65, she went to work managing Frontier Travel & Tours until age 84.
Doris enjoyed playing the piano, singing, watching the Lawrence Welk Show, tending her garden, spending time with her family and friends, and reading the newspaper every morning with a good cup of coffee. She will be remembered for her kindness and generosity to people and animals, her sense of humor, and her youthful spirit, which stayed strong for nearly 98 years.
Doris was preceded in death by: her parents, Roy and Roxa Anderson Taylor; each of her eleven siblings, Zelma, Cora, Earldean, Roy, Rex, Leslie, Sherman, Vera, Ralph, Della, and Martin; her husband, Keith Ross; and her sons, Terry, Bryce, and Jake. She is survived by: her son Mac (Marinda), his children and grandchildren; the children and grandchildren of Ron Terry, two special women Debra Cortrel Self and Orlene Slaugh as well as some very lucky cats.
Funeral services will be held Tuesday, Dec. 28, 2010 at 2 p.m. at the Blackburn Vernal Mortuary; interment will take place at the Vernal Memorial Park under the direction of the Blackburn Vernal Mortuary.
