Sandra L. Ross, 74, of Mount Joy, passed away on Tuesday, October 31, 2017 at Juniper Village after a yearlong battle with brain cancer. She was under the care of Hospice and Community Care. Sandy was the wife of Michael J. Ross Sr. with whom she celebrated 58 years of marriage this past October 5th. Born in Pittsburgh, PA, she was the daughter of the late Henry and Anna (Belgie) Sutter.
Sandy was employed for many years at Sloan’s Pharmacy in Mount Joy where she enjoyed stocking the greeting cards. Sandy and Mike loved spending time at their vacation home near Raystown Lake with their children and grandchildren. Nothing made Sandy happier than to have a full house and pontoon boat at the lake.
Sandy was a loving, generous mother and grandmother. She was a very proud Grammy who loved watching her grandchildren grow and become young adults. She had the most loving and giving heart for her family and friends.
We will cherish her memory and live the love she taught us.
