Tammy Marie Ross passed away peacefully, surrounded by her three children who loved her deeply on the 27th of February 2019. She displayed effortless grace and optimism until her last breath.
Tammy was born on the 29th of November in 1963 in New Orleans, Louisiana. She moved to New Mexico as a young child to join her family. For the past seven months, she courageously fought a battle against cancer.
For more than 30 years, Tammy dedicated her life to working at Hobbs Family Inn, where she touched many people’s lives with her kind heart and gentle spirit. She was honest and loyal in all of her pursuits.
Tammy was admired by many for her strength, compassion, and her relentless devotion to her children and family. She was a mother to all. Her children, who were her pride and joy, all survive her; Ronald Ross, Adrianne Ross, and Ebony Ross. Her greatest love and motivation were her three grandchildren; Xoey, Ronald III, and Nile. She is also survived by her seven siblings; Sherri Utjara, Abby Pirtle, Rose Epperson, Tina Williams, Bridgett Arredondo, Lisa Bautista, and Carlos Bautista. She will leave behind a host of family members who love her dearly.
Tammy and I played together for two years on the Lady Eagles basketball team. Good times. Tammy was a sweet friend. Condolences to her family.

I have so many wonderful memories of the years that I played high school basketball with Tammy (Go Lady Eagles), but my favorite memories are of her kind, positive, and generous spirit.
