Linda Jane Ross

daughters, Melissa Henderson and her husband, John, , of El Paso, and Donna McCutcheon and her husband, David, , of Schertz; sister Penelope Simmons and her husband, Sam, of Thurmond, North Carolina; mother Nadine Pardue of Elkin, North Carolina; and grandchildren and great-grandchildren Austin, Fiona, Sydney, Olivia, Ashleigh, Zachary, Braylon and Dawan.
