Dorothy Ross, longtime Menlo Park resident, dies at 95

Dorothy Ross, who lived in Menlo Park for 63 years before moving to Auburn, died Jan. 14 in Auburn. She was 95.

Ms. Ross was born in Detroit. In 1941, she married Sidney Harold Ross of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. The couple moved to Menlo Park in 1949. She was employed for 30 years by the Foothill College food service.

A wonderful cook, Ms. Ross loved her home, garden and sewing, say family members. A talented artist, she painted flowers on birdhouses and cards.

She is survived by her daughter, Diane McLoughlin; two grandsons and one great-grandson. Mr. Ross died in 1990. A memorial service will be held at Alta Mesa Cemetery at a later date.
