It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Miss Dora Ross of Beattyville, Kentucky, on Saturday, April 21, 2023. Miss Dora was the founder and director of Kentucky Cornerstone Ministries. This ministry served the people of seven counties in Eastern Kentucky.
Through Kentucky Cornerstone, Miss Dora supplied food and clothing, assisted with home repairs to hundreds of people, and hosted volunteer groups at her home. Our SCN volunteers have collaborated with Miss Dora for over 13 years while helping individuals and families in Appalachia.
Speaking for all of us who knew her, Miss Dora was a woman with great faith, grace, and compassion, and her outreach was remarkable.
The funeral arrangements for Miss Dora are as follows:
- Visitation at Newnam Funeral Home in Beattyville Tuesday, April 25, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
- Funeral service at Newnam’s on Wednesday, April 26 at 2:00 pm.
Let us hold her family and dear friends in our hearts and prayers during this difficult time.
This last week, our volunteers stayed at Kentucky Cornerstone while working in Lee County. The group was able to spend time with Miss Dora. We talked about the beautiful impact she has made in her community and let her know how much they loved her. It was such an endearing time. We brought her flowers, laughed and prayed together before returning to Nazareth.
We will miss her dearly, but she will continue to be with us on our life’s journey. Call to her and pray to her. She is one of our Saints!
