Women of Remarkable Strength, Luella Rice Ross

Contributor: crex Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Mother, Luella Rice Ross, raised two families, that of her own in Utah and that of her bothers and sisters in Nevada. Mother never complained about what she had and was always supportive of my father LeR Ross. Brigham Young said as I remember it that any women who raised up a family in the way they should go would be saved in the Kingdom of God if they did not do any other thing. She did it twice. And she did other things as well. Never stopped, neither did my Father LeR ever stop. It took it's toll, with Parkinson's and what she called "spells." All the more to her glory it was for her love for us. I had a disability and she helped me get a tutor. It worked. I read at a college level by High School. Mother had an amazing recall, quoting poems from her childhood. I graduated from two top ten graduate schools in spite of my disability, but didn't have her memory. She also drew cartoons from the newspaper free hand and read us stories. Her will was like that of any very strong person. If you have some of these traits, that is where it is from. Mother speaking of her job in the cannery said that whenever she had a job or if she would get a job now she would work her way up to supervisor. And she was supportive of me later in life when my disability got the best of me. I look upon her memory with great admiration and fondness. And she had a good heart, sponsoring a refugee family from Laos, sometimes referred to as boat people in the newspapers. And she visited them enthusiastically to help them get started here, which they greatly appreciated. And she welcomed a Navajo student named Loretta into our home who had signed up for a program sponsored by the LDS Church to attend classes here. Loretta became a good friend of the family. Mother never deviated from her faith in God and her activity in the Church.
