Billie Ruth Ross, age 73, died on Wednesday, May 22, 2019. Billie was born on November 13, 1945 in Irving, Texas to Willie Jimerson and Viola (Coln) Jimerson. Billie was a fun-loving, giving and very generous woman. She had a wonderful laugh that was contagious to others. She was a true living sacrifice as she raised three children after her husband passed. Billie enjoyed traveling and seeing new places. She was talented at sewing and doing alterations out of her home. She loved her children and grandson Jaxson; they were her life. She would do anything for her kids. She was also a mother to many strays and her kids’ friends called her mom too. She was strong when she had to be, but you never doubted her love for you. She rarely ever complained. Instead she did what she had to do, working multiple jobs if necessary. Billie was devoted and a joy to be around. She retired after more than twenty years of service with the Irving Independent School District. Billie is preceded in death by her parents; husband Joe Ross, and son John (Tiny) Ross.
