Deceased Name: Dorothy Anna Ridste Ross

Dorothy Anna Ridste Ross was called home by her loving Heavenly Father on September 19, 1997. Her abundant love, charity, consideration, and patience - a reflection to her lifelong devotion to Christian principles, touched all who knew her.

Dorothy was born to Clara Zentik and Alfred Ridste on July 8, 1917, in Denton, Montana. She married Walter Lee Ross in Arlington, California, on May 11, 1935. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Los Angeles LDS Temple on November 29, 1958.

An active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she and her family became members of the LDS Church in December 1956. She loved serving in the Relief Society, including her calling as ward Relief Society president. One of her great joys was serving a Family History mission in Salt Lake City. She also enjoyed working in the PTA, serving as PTA president in Long Beach, California.

She is preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Walter Lee Ross; her three brothers, a sister and one grandchild.

She is survived by her four children, Diane Edmunds (Joe) of Ogden, Walter Lee Ross, Jr. (Sandra) and Sharon Powell of Provo, William Ross (Diane) of West Jordan; 26 grandchildren and 29 great-grandchildren.

She will be honored Tuesday, September 23, at a 10:30 a.m. memorial service at the West Jordan River 5th Ward, 1380 West 6785 South. Viewing will be at Goff Mortuary, 8090 So. State, Midvale, from 6 to 8 p.m., Monday and from 9:30 to 10 a.m. Tuesday at the West Jordan River 5th Ward. Interment will be in Lewiston, Utah.

In lieu of flowers, Dorothy's family suggests donations to the Cancer Society.
