            Rebecca A. Ross, 99, Williamsburg, went home to be with the Lord, Tuesday morning, January 2, 2024, at her home.

            She was born in Catharine Township, daughter of the late Jack A. Newman and Elvie (Anderson) Newman-Newcomer. On November 15, 1946, she married John C. Ross in Harrisburg. He preceded her in death on October 6, 2000, following 53 years of marriage.

            Surviving are seven children: Donald L. Ross, of Ephrata, David P. Ross of Williamsburg, Connie M. Reffner of Bedford, Pauline W. Eastep (Daniel) of Williamsburg, Gladys R. Ross of Harrisburg, Kenneth E. Ross, and Twila J. “Butterball” Ross, both of Williamsburg; 17 grandchildren; numerous great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren; a sister, Pauline Kifer of Clappertown; and a special friend, Marie Cole of Williamsburg.
