Adrienne V. Ross

Adrienne V. Ross was born January 22, 1954, in Dayton, Ohio, from the union of Joyce M. Lee and Irvin C. Lewis, Sr. She departed this life on December 25, 2023, in Columbus, Ohio.

Adrienne attended Dayton City Public Schools, and later lived in California and received her Bachelor of Arts Degree. She worked various jobs in the sales industry, retired from AT&T, and in her later years she worked at Chase and VSP. In her early years she received several accolades as an employee, which allowed her to travel and see the world.

She loved the outdoors, fishing with her husband and was an avid reader, great storyteller and writer of many poems, which she copyrighted. She Cherished her dogs, of which she had throughout the years, as well as her treasured exotic fish.

Adrienne was a go-getter, an OG as we say affectionately, and was a budding entrepreneur, as she made her “JOY” Amazing Oil, which she sold throughout the city at various markets, and many can say they were repeat customer!

She accepted Christ at an early age and would send inspirational quotes to many daily to uplift and motivate. She was a spiritual woman of God who prayed fervent prayers and read her bible daily.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Clarence Michael Ross; parents, Joyce M. Lee and Irvin C. Lewis, Sr; sisters, Tonya Lewis (Larry), Renee Caldwell (Craig), Kimberly Coleman; sister-in-law Karen Ross; stepsons, Bradon L. and Nicholas A. Ross; a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, family and friends, including her sisters from the Women of Essence; and special friends, Taimi Calhoun, and Susan Bass. And last, but certainly not least, her beloved fur babies, Aliko, and Venus whom she loved dearly and will miss her most.
