I'm now wondering if Patricia Ann is a step-daughter of Lloyd Edison White
and Lloyd's unnamed wife/ex-wife was either nee Thistle or previously m/1

Lloyd's obit is beneath Ronald's.


Ronald Theodore Ross
Born: December 06, 1934

Ross, Ronald Theodore ­ 1934 ­ 2008, passed away peacefully, October 5, 2008
in Colchester Regional Hospital, Truro. Born in Tatamagouche, December 6,
1934, he was a son of the late Bernie and Annie (Reid) Ross. In his younger
years, he moved to Ontario and worked in the construction business. While in
Ontario, he met and fell in love with his loving wife, Patricia. They
married June 18, 1956 and moved to Tatamagouche where he continued to work
in construction around Nova Scotia. Ronnie will be remembered as a kind and
gentle man who would lend a helping hand to anyone that needed it and for
telling stories whether at home or on the street or for being seen around
the village with his dog Jo-Jo who he loved dearly. At home he found much
comfort in his garage where he would fix things or breaking something to
fix. He bought a boat and loved to row it in the bay behind the house and
got much enjoyment from telling these stories. Ronnie had a great loving
family, his children and grandchildren loved him dearly and they will miss
seeing his beautiful blue eyes and the dimple in his chin. Patricia will be
lost without him. He is survived by his ***wife Patricia Ann (Thistle)***;
his children, Sandy (Marie), Scott (Eleanor), Michael (Karen), all of
Kindersley, Sask.; Sheldon (Sandra), Kindersley and Tatamagouche; Ronda,
