Hi. I'm not related to this family. An application for his gravemarker listed his wife as Mrs. Lillian Ross:

U.S., Headstone Applications for Military Veterans, 1925-1963 about Raymond H Ross

Raymond is living in Nampa, ID as early as 1953:

Here is Raymond & Lillian living in ID in 1940:

According to that census, they had a son, Glen, born 1935 in CA. This might be a birth record for him:

California Birth Index, 1905-1995 about Glen Arlen Ross

Birth Date:        20 Aug 1934
Gender:        Male

Birth County:        Los Angeles

There was also a stepdaughter, Veronne Agenbroad, b. 1924 ID, dau of Dan M. Agenbroad & Lillian M. Richardson. Here is a marriage for these parents:

So, Raymond's 2nd wife's name was most likely Lillian M. Richardson.

This might be Raymond in 1900, living in Denver with his parents Homer, b. 1876 Illinois & Glennie/Jessie, b. 1878 Nebraska:

And then in 1910 living in Fremont, ID with his parents:
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MDCG-ZSN

A WWI draft card lists Homer's full name as Homer Chester Ross, b. 21 Jul 1875 - wife Jessie Ross
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/K8QZ-F3X

Raymond had a brother named Radford Ross, b. 16 Jun 1897 Denver, according to his WWI draft card filled out in St-Anthony, ID:
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/K8QZ-X1B

Their parents Homer & Jessie were still living in ID as late as 1940:
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/VY4J-3BM

Here is this family in 1910:

By 1930, Raymond was a widower, perhaps to 1st wife Docia?

I think it's safe to assume that Raymond's mother was Jessie Glenn(ie) McDermed. Hope this helps. Annie
