JoAnne Patricia Ross, age 83, passed away on Sunday, December 29, 2019.

She was born on February 16, 1936 in Minneapolis, MN to Dudlee and Dorothy (Church) Ebert.

JoAnne was a generous and loving person who enjoyed helping and serving others. Her occupation as a cook and waitress took her talents to many local establishments: BoDo’s Café in Delano, The Hanson House in Long Lake, The Ox Yoke Inn at Lyndale, Wessex Supper Club in Montrose, and Billy Bob’s in Rockford.

In her later years, while at The Glenn Assisted Living in Buffalo, she still enjoyed helping the staff by handing out snacks and spending time in the kitchen.

She is survived by her son, Ray and his wife, Franny; grandsons, Vince, Tony, and Paul; and many other relatives and friends.  She will be sadly missed by all who loved her.

Per JoAnne’s wishes, there will be no memorial services.

Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to The Peterson Chapel in Buffalo. Online condolences for the family may be directed to

    I am so sorry to see JoAnne’s obituary…she was a special lady and Sadie is a fabulous kitty.

    We met at Park View and immediately became friends. She was so kind and helpful. She loved cleaning the tables in the dining and she would put tableclothes on. Sadie took a liking to me and that made her so happy. Her and I would talk on the phone often when she moved to Montrose. I will miss her! My sympathies to her family.
