Adolph Ross

Adolph Otto Ross, 85, died peacefully at his River Forest home on Jan. 29, 2018. Born on Dec. 22, 1932, “I did it my way” surely was Adolph’s style — in living, in aging and in dying. 

Adolph Ross is survived by his wife, Maria; his children Adolph (Dzana), Denise (Tomas), Adrienne, Anna (Tony), John, Ivonne (José) and Fabiola (Julio); his grandchildren, Ashley, Christina, Jennifer, Sarah and Ely, and Antoinette, Adriana, Joey, Kimberly, Melisa, Kael, Adam, Saya and Hunter; his sister, Helen; his brothers-in-law, Tomas and Joe; his sisters-in-law, Carol and Penny; his nieces, Linda, Doreen, Jean, Sharon and Tammy; and his nephews, Kenny and Brian. He was preceded in death by his parents, Adolph A. and Helen; his siblings, Betty, Margaret, Shirley, William and Robert; several nephews; his first wife, Dorothy Ann; and his first-born child, Mary Joanne. 

Your prayers are appreciated and condolence cards for the family may be directed to Denise Ross Jimenez at 2127 N. Harlem Ave., Chicago, Illinois, 60707.
