Darlene Ross, 62, of Amherstdale, WV went to be with the Lord on Friday January 14th, 2022. She was preceded in death by her parents, Chester and Louise Marcum; two sisters, Alice Faye Marcum and Cleo McDonald; four brothers Ronnie Dale Marcum, Donald Ray Marcum, Gary Marcum, and Travis Shane Marcum.
Those left to cherish her memory includes her sweet husband of forty-three years, Ricky Darrell Ross Sr of Amherstdale; daughter, Shavon (Jason) Abbott of Monaville; daughter, Shanda (Wesley) Riggs of Camden SC; and son Ricky (Sabana) Ross Jr. of Omar; nine grandchildren, Jaycee Marie Abbott, Shania Paige Kennedy, Ashton Jason Abbott, Taylor Brooke Kennedy, Jayden Lee Kennedy, Ryleigh Jo Ross, Preston Alan Riggs, Raelynn Sage Ross, and Rogan Axel Ross; one brother, Danny (Casandra) Marcum of Logan; sister in law, Linda Kay Marcum; and a host of very special nieces and nephews that she loved very much; a host of friends and her childhood best friend, Hattie Harris of Alabama.
She was always full of life and always could bring a smile to anyone’s face. She loved her family with everything in her. She loved carrying on with her grandchildren and watching them grow. Her family always got a kick out of the way she talked and carried on and how she finished everything with, “I dont like this crap man.” Although she is not here physically, she is carried in the hearts of her family with all the precious memories she has left. We will miss you with all of our hearts, best friends forever. You are our sunshine.
A funeral service will be held 1:00 pm Thursday, January 20th, 2022, at Collins Funeral Home Chapel. After services, burial will follow at a private location that Darlene had chosen herself. Anyone wishing to send flowers or gifts can send them to Collins Funeral Home.
