Obituary for Frances Helen Ross

Frances Helen Ross "Frannie" (Plocek), 84, of Toledo Ohio, passed away Wednesday, February 15, 2012 in The Toledo Hospital. She was born November 29, 1927 in Toledo, Ohio to John A. and Julia M.

Upon graduation, she worked as a secretary for Travelers Insurance Company until her marriage in 1952. Her enjoyments then were dedicated to her family, with hobbies that included bunco, bowling (which she was an officer for many years and many leagues), T.O.P.S. and puzzles in later years.

Surviving are her sons, Mark Ross -Michaels of Hollywood CA, Dean A. (Carmenita) Ross of Toledo OH, Scott E. (Kathy) Ross of Hilliard OH, Tracy J. (Tami) Ross of Toledo OH, and daughter Dawn L.
