Obituary for MARGARET MARIE GROSS

Margaret Marie Gross affectionately known as (Biddy) was born on August 27, 1938 to the late Matilda and Harry Gross Sr. She departed this life in the early morning of September 27, 2012 at the blessed age of 74. Margaret was always a loving and devoted daughter, sister, aunt, and all around good person to all who knew her. Margaret was a very special person from birth and God sent us a beautiful flower to care for until it was time for her to take her rest. The family especially admired the way she pulled through the difficult times in her life coping with her health and other adversities by demonstrating strength, courage, and faith. Margaret lived a very active and productive life; she was involved in CDS, Adult Day Care, and the ARC. She enjoyed many activities especially arts & crafts, games, music, trips, shopping, visiting people, and all entertainment that involved the interactions with kind people. Many expressed, to spend time with Margaret was truly a pleasure, and to know her was to love her. Margaret was introduced to The ARC of the Southern Maryland later in her life. Her mother and sisters cared for her faithfully until her mother's health began to decline. Some of Margaret's fondest memories were with Mrs. Mary Ellen Weems, whom she adored, and the Cove Point Road family. However, with the help of her new extended family, they made her comfortable, in transitioning into a new chapter of life. As the years went on, Margaret grew to love and embrace many other staff members and friends, who all cared for her very affectionately. However, in the later years, her most beloved care provider and companions were Ms. Maxine Brown, the Kings' Road family, and the Calvert Nursing Home staff that all took exceptional care of Margaret. Margaret loved all of her family but she really cherished her sister Doris, whom assumed guardianship of her after the passing of their mom. Even when her health began to fail, she still recognized Doris and truly enjoyed the time-shared with her until Margaret's final earthly battle was conquered. Margaret had six siblings whom preceded her in death: Harry Gross Jr., Matilda Gross, William Gross, James Gross, Mary Gross, and Rosie Gantt. She leaves to cherish her fond memories: four sisters, Olivia Gross, Doris Harris, Mildred Gross, Bertha Gross, one brother, Melvin Gross Sr. one Aunt Rhatta Johnson, two sisters-in-law, Evelyn and Eva Gross, one brother-in-law George Harris and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws, and special friends.
