Jacqueline Diane Ross, age 86, died in the arms of her dearest friend, Sherry Mannerow, on Thursday, November 7, 2019, at Credit Valley Hospital in Mississauga. She was born on April 21st, 1933, in Sherbrooke Quebec, to Emile and Antoinette (Yvonne LaRoche) Lefebvre, and graduated with Honours from Collège Sainte-Anne before moving to Ville Saint-Pierre, where she met (and unwillingly wooed) Robert (Bob) Williams Ross, who convinced her to marry him in August, 1951. Together, they had four children. After returning to work, Jacqueline became the Executive Assistant to the President of Atomic Energy of Canada. In their free time, Jackie and Bob enjoyed hosting parties for friends, and spending quality time with family. She is survived by her daughters, Linda (Keith) Bailey, Beverley (Maurice) Ross-Levy, and Daniele Ross (Harry Ashenhurst), as well as her grandchildren, Christopher March (Kathleen Andrejcik), Katie (Vince) Antonellis, Chelsea (Justin) Dupuis, Daniel Ross (Kortney Stanley) Kolbey and Madison Ross-Levy, and her great-grandchildren, Geneviève and Theo Dupuis, Oliver and Alice Antonellis. She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband, and her son, Bob (Marion) Ross. Jacqueline will be remembered as a markedly strong-willed, charismatic woman, who undoubtedly left a lasting impression on all who had the privilege of knowing her.
