PRICE - Our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, friend and teacher, Ann Ross, was taken from us too soon in an unfortunate car accident on Aug. 4, 2008.
She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
Ann was born on Oct. 14, 1950 in Taos, N.M., to Cleotilde Vigil and Amadeo Romero. On Sept. 6, 1970, she married Ronald G. Ross in Elko, Nev.; their marriage was solemnized in the Manti LDS Temple on Dec. 7, 1994.
She graduated from Hillcrest High School in 1968 and later earned her associate of science degree from the College of Eastern Utah.
Ron and Ann moved to Price in 1974 and raised their family of four sons.
While residing in Price, she was employed for 25 years in the coal mining industry.
Her family was the absolute love of her life, especially her 14 grandchildren who affectionately called her "Grannie Annie."
Ann was a caring person who had a positive influence on the lives of those she touched.
She never suppressed a generous thought or deed. She was a peacemaker and a woman of unique strength and character. Should each of us be able to tear out a page from Grannie Annie's book of life and incorporate the wisdom contained therein, we would all be a better and more loving people.
Ann, you are so dear, so sweet, so beautiful, so precious to us. You are truly an elect lady and we are going to miss you more than words can express. May God be abundant in his blessings upon you.
Ann is survived by her loving husband, Ron Ross, Price; four sons and one stepdaughter, Don (Lara) Ross, Grand Junction, Colo.; Ron (Julianne) Ross, Sandy; Scott Ross, Denver, Colo.; Beau (Sarah) Ross, Coralville, Iowa; and Kari (Reed) Smith, Springville; grandchildren, Noah, Sophia, Avabelle, Lola, Eliza, Isaac, Tucker, Tilly, Ezra, Trevyn, Daryk, Danyelle, Mytchell and Mckenzy; great-granddaughter, Ryan Rae, and one more on the way. She also leaves behind four brothers and three sisters, Ben Valencia, George Gonzales, Tom and Tim Romero, Orlinda Petersen, Lillian Taylor and Irene Leyba; and many other extended family members.

Do you think the Utah Legislature should increase appropriations for public education in Utah beyond the current legislative trend in the past few years of funding only for growth in student population?
