Virginia "Ginny" Ross

Virginia "Ginny" Ross, 69, Springfield, passed away on March 12, 2012 in Mercy Hospital, following a brief illness. She was born March 24, 1942, in Willard, Missouri, the daughter of Jack and Anita Farmer.

She is survived by her mother; Anita Farmer, Springfield, her partner; Earl Holmer, Springfield, sister; Mary Farmer, Panama, brother; John (Janet) Farmer, Columbia, children; Jeff (Kelly) Staley, David (Ronda) Staley, both from Willard, stepson John Ross, Jr, Florida and stepdaughter Terrie (Bill) Rodriguez, Florida. She was blessed with 8 grandchildren; Meghan, Brandon, Nathan and Jordyn Staley, Jackie (Gene) Douglas, Julie (Clayton) Waldie, Linsey (Doug) Cainas, Amber Rodriguez and 9 great-grandchildren.

Ginny graduated from Willard High School and Burge School of Nursing. She received a Bachelor of Nursing from SMSU and Masters in Education from MU.

Ginny spent her adult life advocating for healthy children and families. Her career included the development and direction of Health Services for Willard and Springfield School Systems. She created a teen pregnancy prevention program that brought her recognition from the National March of Dimes. Ginny established the first HIV/AIDS school curriculum in Missouri, later used as a model statewide. She initiated the Advocates for Healthy Children and Youth, which evolved into Advocates to Healthy Community that later led to the establishment of Jordan Valley Community Health Center. Ginny co-founded the Doula Foundation of Mid-America and served as a certified Doula for several hundred births.

Ginny has been recognized locally and nationally for many contributions to Nursing, Public Health and the quality of life that exists because of her efforts. Most importantly is the legacy she leaves in her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, extended family; patients; colleagues; friends; and anyone else who had the deep pleasure and honor of knowing her.

She was preceded in death by her father, Jack and her husband, John Ross, Sr.
