April 4, 1935 - February 24, 2021
Ms. Hazel Elizabeth Poston Ross, 85, of Kannapolis, NC, passed away Wednesday, February 24, 2021, at Autumn Care of Cornelius, after a year of declining health. Hazel was born April 4, 1935 in Iredell County. She was a daughter of the late Walter Lee and Katie Bell Brown Poston and was the youngest of their thirteen children. She was preceded in death by her parents and siblings. Ms. Ross is survived by her daughter, Sharon Willis, and husband, Howard, of Kannapolis, and her son, Brian Ross, and wife, Kathy, of Concord. She had six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Grandchildren: Ashleigh McIntosh; Meghan Dean (Marcus); Hunter Willis (Dakotah); Brittany Ross; Scott Ross (Amanda); and Amanda Jean Ross. Great-grandchildren: Isabella Dean, Anderson Dean, Malone McIntosh, Ella Ross, Cole Ross, and Eli Ross. Ms. Ross loved Jesus, reading and studying the Bible, and listening to gospel music. She was raised on a farm and was no stranger to a hard day’s work. For many years, she enjoyed working with Fieldcrest Cannon in the towel cutting room. She was a talented artist, bookkeeper, and seamstress, who enjoyed arts and crafts, gardening and canning vegetables, feeding her hummingbirds, baking, cooking, and above all, caring for children. Ms. Ross was an intellect who loved to learn; she developed an amazing spunk and wittiness in her later years that all enjoyed and will not forget. Her family will certainly miss her caring nature and unconditional love. A private memorial service will be held at a later date.
