Beverly (Gallivan) Ross, a loving mother, and grandmother passed away on Saturday, March 27, 2021. She was born to William C. Gallivan and Agnes Hurteau Gallivan on February 19, 1931, in Malone, NY. She grew up in Malone and graduated from Saint Joseph’s Academy.
She was married to E. Robert “Bob” Ross for 42 years and had six children.
Beverly was always the mainstay for her family as her husband’s career took them to live in different areas of New York State, Florida, Massachusetts, and Belgium. Her passion for redecorating always made each new place the perfect home. In her later years, she moved to Dallas, Georgia, and then to Melbourne, FL. Beverly was a talented artist who enjoyed oil painting and sewing. She also enjoyed playing cards, scrabble, and hosting gatherings with family and friends.
She is predeceased by her parents, son, David Ross, brothers, William “Bill” Gallivan, and Darrel Gallivan, sisters, Patricia Brennan and Alethea Davis.
