Lula Virginia Ross Montgomery

of Little Rock, AR

January 29, 1932 - December 21, 2023

Lula Virginia Ross Montgomery of Little Rock, Arkansas passed away 21 December, 2023 in Pine Bluff, Arkansas at the age of 91. Lula was born January 29, 1932 in Pansey, Arkansas to Walter and Mallie Swayze Ross. Lula was born a cotton picker and did so until she married her husband, Robert (Dick) Ross. Dick Ross passed away in February 1972. Lula would later marry her second husband, Millard Montgomery in 1978, they met at Teletype where she retired from in 1988. Lula led an active life. She was a remarkable cook and passed her skills to those who listened. She was a skilled seamstress, making clothes, costumes and quilts for her family. Her quick wit and profound silence were well known and well received. She enjoyed traveling and crossed the nation seeing countless landmarks. She tended to her gardens and reaped what she sowed and well into her later years she tended to her lawn and flower gardens.

She is preceded in death by the father of her children, Robert Ross; her second husband, Millard Montgomery; her parents, Walter and Mallie; brother, Winston Ross; sisters, Faye Ross, Wanda Woodall, Bea Dorman; grandchild, Brad Ross; great grandchild, Brandon Carmichael and son-in-law, Grady Taylor.

She is survived by her siblings, Addie Mae Sizemore, Diane Porter and brothers, Joseph Ross and Edward Ross; three children, Michael Ross (Connie), Tony Ross (Peggy) and Renee Ross Taylor; her grandchildren, Misty Ross, Christy Rich (John), Robert Ross (Kimberly), Tonya Bromley (Brad), Broc Taylor and Braden D Taylor (Emily); seven great grandchildren and four great great grandchildren.

Lula Virginia Ross Montgomery should be remembered as a shepherd of her family. Always attentive to her flock, her ability to tend to and care for each of her children is passed from her to them to their children. Her desire to see each of them succeed in whatever endeavors they pursued will leave an ever-lasting impact on each of them. Lula was a blessing to all those who interacted with her not only for the wisdom she would offer but also for the comfort she brought into their lives.

A special thank you to Trinity Village in Pine Bluff for their care of our mother and a very special thank you to all the Misty's.

Visitation will be held at 1 pm Wednesday, December 27, 2023 at Roller Drummond Funeral Home, 10900 Interstate 30 with funeral services following at 2 pm, Darran Kea will officiate. Burial will follow at Ivy Chapel Cemetery in Little Rock.
