She was the first cousin of Canadian comedian and writer Spencer Rice.
During her battle with ovarian cancer early in 1996 she wrote an article, "Cancer Becomes Me," for The New Yorker. She tried to find humor in the situation by joking that she wanted to hold on until November 1996, so that she would not have to risk being re-incarnated as Madonna's child (as Madonna was pregnant). Gross died in June 1996 at age 40.
Seinfeld's eighth season premiere, "The Foundation", was dedicated in her memory.
