Obituary of Rachel "Shelly" Ross

Rachel "Shelly" Ross, age 75, of Las Vegas, died Sunday, July 30, 2017. Shelly was born October 24, 1941 in Manhattan NY to the late Kay and Fannie Bell. She lived in Coney Island until she married Norman Ross in 1964. They didn't move far, living in a number of communities in the New York area, until they moved to Las Vegas in 1996.

Shelly worked as a secretary for CitiBank after graduating high school, and became a stay-at-home mother when her children were born. After the children graduated school, she went back to work as a manager for Best Mattress. Shelly was an outgoing person in every sense of the word. Never one to sit still, she loved to "go out" to do most anything, but her favorite activities were going to movies and shows. Shelly is survived by her husband of 53 years, Norman Ross; children David (Stephanie) Ross, Lori (Tal) Tzitel, and Dana Ross; and grandchildren Kate, Colton and Bennett Ross; Ethan Tzitel. She is predeceased by her brother and sister in law Leonard and Jackie Bell.

A graveside service will be held at 2:00 pm on Wednesday, August 2, 2017 at King David Cemetery, 2697 E. Eldorado Ln., Las Vegas, NV. Contributions in Shelly's memory may be directed to the donor's favorite charity.
