March 23, 1948 - April 5, 2022
Wanda Hough Ross, 74, of Hernando, MS (Charlotte, NC & Newnan, GA) passed away on Tuesday, April 5, 2022. Mom was born on March 23, 1948, in Charlotte, NC (Indian Trail). She was the daughter of Lee and Kathryn Hough. Mom spent most of her formative years in Indian Trail and Mint Hill, NC. At the age of 40, her and our dad moved our family to Newnan, GA. In 2004 mom moved to Hernando, MS to be close to her daughter and son-in-law, as well as her first grandchild. Our mother spent many years working as an accounting supervisor. At the age of 52 she made the bold decision to become a flight attendant for Delta Airlines. She retired from Delta after 20 years of service. During those 20 years she was able to fly around the world, experience different cultures and make many lifelong friends within the Delta family. Before and more so after retirement, she was known for the many hours she gave volunteering in the Hernando community. She was always willing to help where she could and wasn’t afraid to rope in her family and friends. At every stop in her life, our mother made a lasting impression on people with her loving spirit and kind soul. She will always be remembered for her beautiful smile, and her pure love for life. Our mother was an amazing grandmother to her four favorite people on the planet. There’s nothing more that she loved to do than spend time with her grandchildren. Mom is survived by her two children, Tonia Marshall and her husband Ben, Darren Ross and his wife Hamano, one sister, Charlene Taylor and her husband Johnny Taylor; four grandchildren, Taylor Marshall, Kathryn Marshall, Wyatt Ross and River Ross and most importantly her loving dog Merlin. There will be a celebration of our mom’s life on Saturday, April 16, 2022 (1:00-3:00) at the Courtyard on Panola St behind the Community Foundation (315 Losher St) in Hernando, MS. In case of rain, we will move to her home: 256 DeSoto Ave. Hernando. In lieu flowers, the family request memorials be sent to the Wanda Ross Memorial Endowment Fund at the Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi at 315 Losher St., Suite 100, Hernando, MS 38632 (662) 449-5002.
