Margaret Ross

October 8, 1943 — April 4, 2023

Margaret Alice Hay Ross was born on October 8, 1943 in Tampa, Florida to Robert Welborn Hay and Jessie Mae O'Barr. Margaret was raised and attended school in Leeds, Alabama. Margaret studied to become a laboratory technician and worked as such for The Red Cross, Dr. Clark Gravlee and Dr. Joe Bancroft.

She loved dancing, decorating, growing flowers, especially orchids and her dogs. But more than anything she loved her family and friends. In 1985 she married Chuck Ross and they had a wonderful life together.

She is survived by her husband of 38 years, Chuck Ross and her son, Robert Watson. She is preceded in death by her mother and father, Robert Welborn and Jessie Mae Hay.

Margaret fought a long and difficult battle with both Crohns Disease and COPD.

In lieu of flowers, you may make a donation to Crohns and Colitis Foundation or COPD Foundation.

Margaret's service will be family and close friends at the grave site.

The family would like to sincerely thank Compassus Hospice and Dr. Brian Flanagan with Eastern Pulmonary.
