Christine Ann Ross, 53

July 19, 2019

Christine Ann Ross, 53, of Wauseon, OH, was tragically taken from her family and friends suddenly and without warning on Friday, July 19, 2019. Born in Bridgeport, CT, she was the loving daughter of William Sterbinsky, of Shelton, CT and the late Joyce (Curcio) Sterbinsky who died in 2012.

A proud mother and grandmother, she loved her family and put them before anything else. She was a selfless person who desired to please everyone. A free spirit, she enjoyed spending time riding with her fiancé, Jim, on his motorcycle. She also had an adventurous appetite and was always looking for a new place to dine with Jim. She dabbled in woodworking and enjoyed cooking and caring for her home.

Christine will be forever missed by her fiancé and longtime companion, James Lower; children: Brian Jacyszyn, husband of Erika, of Lancaster; Christopher Jacyszyn, of Lancaster; Sarah Johnson, wife of Andrew, of Willow Street; Kathryn Walsh, companion of David, of Lancaster; and Heather Sterbinsky, fiancé of Ryan, of Schuylkill Haven; 15 grandchildren; and sister, Lisa Yulo, wife of Vincent, of Hamden, CT. Christine’s loving daughter, Autumn Ross, girlfriend of Marcquale, also passed away in the same incident.

Funeral Services for Christine will be held at 7PM, Friday, July 26, 2019 at Bachman Snyder Funeral Home & Crematory, 7 S. Decatur St., Strasburg, PA 17579. Extended viewing hours will be held at the funeral home from 3PM to 7PM. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions in Christine’s memory be made to Mental Health America of Lancaster at https://www.mhalancaster.org/donate-now/.

Condolences to Christine’s family, from our family. We were so saddened to learn about Christine‘s death. We were then further saddened to learn that there was so much that we did not know about her life and that we only learned about after her death. May we all heal with love and kindness prevailing.

My prayers are with the families. Even thou I didn’t know Christine, I met her daughter at Gabes where she worked briefly. She was a beautiful and lovely person. Working different shifts, we met only in passing, but, I saw in her a person who was willing to work, to get the job done, so she could get ahead in life. That she did. Her family could be proud of her in what she accomplished. God be with you all as you grieve for Christine and Autumn

Hi Guys is Kayla. I’m so very sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you all & your family’s. I have know y’all on & off my entire life. I remember sleep at your house watching movies. I remember playing outside under the tree with y’all & in the back yard. I loved being around y’all’s so much that I ran away (yeah Dad (Duane) cought me) but we when right to y’alls house. I remember Tina cooking in the kitchen dancing & singing. She always had a way to make me laugh & little Autumn I remember when she was walking around in a walker. Then when she was older she always hung out with me & Katie. I’m sorry for rambling there’s just so many good memories with y’all. I love each & every one of you always have & always will. I always thought we would come back together because the universe always had a way of us finding each other again. Katie you are my sister & I miss you & all of you terribly. If any of you would like to contact me my Facebook name is Serenity Angelus mommyHartwick. Again I’m so sorry for your loss Autumn save me a hug & Tina keep on dancing until we meet again
