Melvadyne Ross, 81, died peacefully in her sleep, Friday, November 15, 2002. Beloved daughter, sister, and mother,"Mel" as she was usually called, was loved by all and will be greatly missed.

She is survived by her son, Phillip M. Ross of Albuquerque; and brother, Ray Bagen of St. Petersburg, FL. The family would like to thank the staff of ManorCare Camino Vista for the wonderful care provided the last years of Melvadyne's life. Anyone wishing to honor Mel's life should make donations to the Children's Hospital of NM, 2211 Lomas Blvd. NE, 87106.
