Obituary of Teresa J. (Otis) Ross


Teresa J. Ross, age 52, passed away unexpectedly at home on May 1st 2022.

She was born February 23rd 1970 in Ithaca NY. She was the daughter of the late Betty Lou VanPelt and George Damon Otis.

Teresa enjoyed being a grandmother above all else. Her other passions were crafting and bringing a smile to people’s faces. She had a love for animals, especially her cat and her bird, also spent many of her younger years riding her horse.

She is survived by her husband, Michael Shane Ross; her daughter, Caitlynn Emma Ross (husband Kevin Servoss); grandson, Huntyr Servoss; her brother, Lawrence Eugene Otis (children, Andrew Otis, Stephanie Otis, Jessica Otis, Zachary Otis, Amylynn Otis); sister, Jaqueline Irene McDonald ( husband Joseph McDonald; children, Kayla Conway, Megan McDonald, Morgan McDonald); her pets, Gracie the cat and Romeo the cockatiel, along with many other aunts, uncles, cousins and loved ones.

A celebration of life will be taking place at a later date with many marbles.

In loving memory of Teresa, we would ask that donations be made to Dryden Ambulance and Neptune Hose company for the kind and compassionate assistance they have given to Teresa and her family in their times of need.
