Sally Frances Ross Muccio, age 59, passed away on December 21, 2020. She was born on June 16, 1961 in Miami Beach and lived almost all her life in Miami. She was a graduate of Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart and Emory University. She was also a Miami-Dade County teacher for a few years in the late 1980s.
The first thing everyone always says about Sally is how sweet she was. She was also loving, kind, and generous by nature with a smile and greeting for friends and strangers alike no matter their background or economic status. How many of us would sit on a bench outside the grocery store with a homeless woman and have a conversation not once, but each time she saw her, to make her day a little brighter? On her daily walks to the neighborhood shopping plaza she would greet everyone from children to the elderly in English or Spanish. Countless people knew Sally, and she knew them, too. She remembered who was having a baby, who was getting married, and much more. She told them all about her daughter, the joy of her life, and her husband of more than 30 years who was her life partner.
Sally had asthma from a very young age, but despite every illness, challenge, or tragedy that came her way, she woke up every morning with a positive attitude and love for everyone. She set a shining example of how to treat people, and we can only hope to be half the person she was if we really try. We were fortunate to be in her life and will miss her forever.
Sally was the daughter of H. J. "Jack" Ross and Donna Guilfoyle Ross. She is survived by her husband Craig Van Thomas Muccio and their daughter Donna Irene Coelho, her sister Julie Ross Myers, her son-in-law Marco Andres Coelho, her stepmother Audrey Ross Culbertson, and her stepsister Melissa Jackson Loree.
