Patricia Carol Ross Obituary

Patricia Carol (Whitford) Ross, 73, of Newton, Iowa, formerly of Burlington, Iowa, died on Saturday, July 6, 2024, at MercyOne Medical Center, in Newton.

Born on December 24, 1950, in Burlington, she was the daughter of George and Mildred (Hunter) Whitford.

Patricia graduated from Burlington High School in 1968. She was a seamstress for Hollywood movies, sewing costumes for Chuck Norris in the movie Missing in Action, Top Gun and several other movies. Patricia worked and retired from Winegard after several years of employment. She had a little side business sewing wedding dresses and costumes for many people. One of Patricia’s favorite things to do was bake with her grandchildren. She also enjoyed camping, fishing and crocheting with her favorite blanket on her lap. Most of all Patricia loved being with family, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
