Margaretha, more commonly known as Margaret, was born on November 4, 1929 in Miami, OK, to Lyle and Maud (Riggs) Wilson. She graduated from Miami High School in 1948. She met Kenneth Harold Ross and they married October 28, 1949 in Miami. The two of them lived in Shidler and Drumright a short period of time before moving to Nowata where they settled down and started their family. After 15 years they moved to Seminole so Kenneth could continue working the oil fields. Once again, Kenneth's job led them to Cleveland, Oklahoma where they lived until Kenneth's death. After his passing Margaret later moved to Stillwater.
Margaret was a homemaker during the early years of her life, and later took vocational training to become a Medical Unit Secretary / Ward Clerk where she worked several years at Cleveland Area Hospital and Stillwater Medical Center until retiring in 2001. She greatly enjoyed her work and treasured the many friendships created at both hospitals.
Margaret loved spending time with her family, attending family reunions, birthdays, holidays and especially loved everyone getting together for Christmas. She enjoyed playing games, taking vacation trips and attending as many of her children's, grandchildren's and great-grandchildren's school and sporting events as possible.
