Peggy Sue Ross

November 5, 1938 — September 15, 2022

Peggy Sue Ross entered into eternal rest on September 15, 2022, in Springfield, Missouri at the age of 83.

Peggy Sue Wherley was born on her family farm in Astoria, Illinois on November 5, 1938. Peggy Sue was a farm girl, she was a participant in 4-H, and she loved her animals. Peggy moved to the Denver, Colorado area where she met John Patrick Ross. Peggy Sue and John Pat were married on March 21, 1963 and had three children. They quickly became lifelong Denver Bronco fans and proudly held season tickets for the Broncos and the Wisconsin Badgers for many seasons. 

Peggy has always taken pride in being a solid presence in her community. Especially in her role as county treasurer for Rock County Wisconsin. Following her retirement, John and Peggy moved to California to be closer to their family. They loved being grandparents. Peggy was a grandma to everyone. She was dedicated to her family and friends. Peggy made a final move to Nixa, Missouri to remain close to family. She found community and home at Redeemer Lutheran Church. Peggy was very active in the church and dedicated her time for as long as her health would allow. She was a devote Christian and we can take comfort that she is finally at rest with her Lord, Jesus.

Peggy was preceded by her parents Pius and Laura (Lauderback) Wherley, eight siblings, and her first-born son, Terry Duane Ross. She is survived by her husband John Pat Ross, her daughter Alisa Reum and Alisa’s husband Don, her son Bob Ross and Bob’s wife Kim, her grandsons Devin Reum and JT Ross, her granddaughters Adaira Reum and Kacey Ross, and many beloved friends.
