Kathy Ross is a retired nurse from North Haven, Connecticut. She is a mother of six middle-aged children: four sons and two daughters.
She is an older woman and has noticeable wrinkles on her face and hands. Her hair is a shade of white and her skin is fair. Ross wears glasses and has light blue eyes. One may create their own idea of who Ross is just by looking at her. However, the conversation dove deeper into the life of Kathy Ross.
When asked about what she considered to be her unique quality, Ross said her naturally curly hair. She followed up by saying, “I don’t know...I think I have a pretty good sense of humor. So yeah, I like people, I like what I do, and I have a very good life.”
Kathy briefly touched upon issues such as the hurricanes. She recalled the hurricanes during ‘her day’ by saying they were fun.
She not only viewed the hurricanes in a positive light, but she also looked at the roads being paved in Hamden as a positive.
