She was a member of The Star of Bethlehem Baptized Pentecostal Church of Holiness in Lexington, Kentucky, where she met and married her husband of 23 years, Randall Ross. Within their union, they had two lovely daughters, Taloria and Taleisha Ross. Rogina had many achievements throughout her life however, being a wife and mother were her greatest accomplishments.
Rogina was a graduate from Bryan Station High School. Rogina was an exceptional student and excelled academically.

While attending Bluegrass she re-ceived the following accolades: High Scholastic Achievement (Dean's list), Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society, Who's Who Among Students in American Junior College, and The National Dean's List. While battling her illness, she continued to strive to obtain her academic goals. There was no challenge ever too great for Rogina! In 2010, she graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Education from Asbury College in Wilmore, Kentucky.
After graduating college, she was employed by Warner Elementary in Nicholasville, Kentucky. Through her employer, she was able to fulfill her "calling" which was teaching. Rogina loved working with her co-workers and playing an influential role in the life of her students. Rogina also served as a Sunday school Superintendent, Sunday school teacher, and Children's Choir Director at her church.
Affectionately known as "Momma", "Jeannie", "My Baby", "Mrs. Ross" and "Aunt Jeannie", she was loved and adored by many. Genie had a servant's heart. She was always giving to others whether in her kind deeds, words of encouragement, in the classroom or her sweet endearing smile. Jeannie was an avid reader, completing several books in short periods of time. When Jeannie found time to relax, you would find her shopping with her mother and daughters, singing with the mass choir, watching television, or reading her favorite book, the Bible.
On Tuesday, March 12, 2013, God saw it fit to call her to rest from her labors. Mrs. Rogina Ross leaves to cherish her memory, her husband, Deacon Randall Ross, two daughters, Taloria and Taleisha, her parents, Daniel and Bernice Walker, two brothers and a number of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. And in the final words of Rogina.. "I won't complain."
