Dena Raye (Boring) Ross, a resident of Yukon, Oklahoma, died at her home after losing her bitter battle with cancer on Jan. 6, 2019, at the age of 60. 

Dena was born in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, on Feb. 21, 1958, to Dean and Doris Boring. She graduated from Trona High School in Trona, California, in 1976, and shortly thereafter she married her former husband Douglas Ross. They had three children together; sons Zachary and Tyler, and daughter Audra. 

Dena is preceded in death by her father.  She is survived by her mother; her children; her grandchildren Kelsey, Luciana, Capone, and Theodore (Teddy); and her siblings Donna (Boring) Heaslip, Jeffrey Boring, Vicki (Boring) Hobby, and Brian Boring. 

Dena loved her family and pets and dreamed of retiring to enjoy traveling to some of the places that she arranged travel for her Hertz customers. Dena constantly pursued learning history and in the last few years had started gardening. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends and all who knew her. 

Her service is at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 12, at Smith and Turner Mortuary, Yukon, Oklahoma, and interment to follow at Yukon Cemetery. Please visit www.smith-turnermortuary.com to offer condolences.
