December 3, 1954 - September 30, 2018     Age: 63

Kathleen Mary Ross, age 63 of Fernandina Beach, Florida passed away on Sunday, September 30, 2018 at her residence.

She was born on December 3, 1954 in Lakewood, Ohio to the late James and Francis (Majors) Kolb.

Kathleen grew up in Beaver, Pennsylvania and received her Associates Degree in Nursing from Beaver County Community College.

In 1999 she moved with her family to Fernandina Beach, Florida where she enjoyed being out in the warm, beautiful weather.  Kathleen was known by all as a vivacious, free spirited, outgoing person who never met a stranger.  She loved music and was self taught on the keyboard and also enjoyed playing bongos and maracas.  She would often attend concerts and go to the theater with her friends.  Kathleen was a spiritual person and on her bed-side table were books by Shirley MacLaine.

Kathleen retired from US Airways in 2006 where she worked as a Flight Operations Technician.  She was very proud of her son Kevin and would brag to everyone about him being a Firefighter for the City of Fernandina Beach.

She is preceded in death by her parents and son, Steven Ross.

She leaves behind her son, Kevin Ross and his wife Hannah of Fernandina Beach, Florida; siblings, Dr. Gary Kolb, David Kolb, Robert Kolb, Karen Green, Karol Cowart, Kimberly Ferguson; and twin granddaughters, Stevie and Rebekah Ross.
