Lahoma Fay (Lattimore) Ross, 84, went home to be with Jesus Christ on January 1, 2023. She was born on August 10, 1938, on her family’s farm near Nicut, Oklahoma, to the now late, Robert Benjamin (Dobe) Lattimore and Magnolia (Amos) Lattimore.

She attended Miller Ridge School, Oliverhurst California Public Schools, and is a graduate of both Central High School and Millie’s Beauty College, of Ft. Smith Arkansas. She was a talented beautician; however, she dedicated her life to the Lord, her family and to the Hanson Baptist Church community. She was devoted to the church bus ministry and to children’s ministry for over fifty years. She focused her life on leading children to Christian salvation and putting others before herself. Her Christian faith will continue to bless everyone she ever met. She was also an avid gardener and enjoyed being outdoors in nature enjoying God’s creation.

She is survived by her husband of sixty-one years, John David Ross, of their home near Sallisaw; a daughter, Shannon (Ross) Tucker and husband, Bryan Tucker; a daughter, Barbara (Ross) Cawhorn and husband, Jeff Cawhorn; and a son, John David Ross, II, and wife, Sherry (Durant) Ross. She also helped raise her nieces and nephew: Romy (Ross) Vogt, Una Ross, Marty Ross and Jackie Ross. Her grandchildren are: Sierra Tucker, Ty Braden Tucker, Blair (Haggard) Holloway and husband, Yusuf Holloway, Roger Haggard, II and wife, Katrina Haggard, Chase Christian Ross, Sydney Ross and Logan Scaggs, Alyssa Ross, Legacee Ross, and Brekken Ross. She also has nine great-grandchildren, and countless nieces and nephews. She is also survived by two sisters: Charlotte (Lattimore) Lessley and husband, Jerry Don Lessley; and Christine (Lattimore) Henshaw and husband, A.J. Henshaw. She will be greatly missed.

She is preceded in death by her parents, and her brothers and their wives: Billy Charles and Roma Lattimore, and John Samuel and Doris Lattimore.

Active Pallbearers will be Bryan Tucker, Jeff Cawhorn, Marty Ross, John Wells, Roger Haggard, II and Yusuf Holloway.
