RIP: Lucia Ross 1917 – 2016

We have some sad news to report, courtesy of Laura Donaldson: The passing of Schroon Laker Lucia Ross. From Laura:

“Sad news - Lucia Ross passed away early this morning. Born 1917, she was 98-years-old. She would have been 99 on April 1, 2016.

I believe she was the oldest living person in the Town of Schroon but has been residing at the Tri County Nursing home in North Creek for eight years. Loved by everyone she met, Lucia had a sense of humor and sewed for those when she could. She has sewn all over this area and for many years had done great quality upholstery work.

Her daughter, Betsy Ross, will have a spring/summer service at my home, Rocky Acres Inn B&B.  I will let you know more in the future. There will not be any announcements in the paper - so please share this with anyone that knew her. Thank you. (Love you mom-Ross, she was my neighbor!!)”
