Our hearts are very heavy as we share the news that our beloved colleague and friend, Suzanne Ross, died on Monday, after living valiantly with a cancer diagnosis for the past year. Suzanne has been at the center of Ann Arbor Active Against ALS since the very beginning. She was a founding board member, the first director (2008-2013), and most recently, the organization’s first official staff person. Suzanne embodied what came to be the core commitments of our grass roots effort: compassion, a strong sense of community, and the belief that people can make a positive difference in the world when they come together. She brought a can-do attitude to all of our endeavors, and came to the work with joy and a wonderful sense of humor. Suzanne had a natural way of bringing others in, and over the years she made everyone feel valued and special in this joint effort to confront ALS. We will miss her gifted photography, her enthusiastic presence, and her healthy perspective on what mattered in life. We share our love and our missing with Kevin, her remarkable husband and box-car builder extraordinaire, and with Katy and Cody, who have grown up helping at Active Against ALS events. Suzanne’s spirit lives on through them and through our own efforts to honor her belief in the power of community. ... See MoreSee Less
