John Edward Cross

John Edward Cross, 77, passed away at the Becker-Shoop Center on Monday, January 5, 2009.

John was born in Wabeno, WI, on July 25, 1931, to the late John F. and Evelyn (nee: Rice) Cross. He faithfully served our country with the United States Army in the Korean War. John was employed for many years as a machinist at The Heil Co. in Milwaukee until his retirement in 1985. A private man of few words, John was happiest in the comfort of his own home while in the surroundings of those he loved.

On January 30, 1982, in Racine, he was united in marriage with Jeannine Marie (nee: Miller) Cross, who survives John, along with his step-son, Daryl Thomas; and other special relatives, Jane Greenwood, Mary Greenwood, Peggy Wasson and Jean Greenwood.

In accordance with John’s wishes, cremation will take place. A brief Service of Remembrance will be held in the funeral home on Thursday, January 8, 2009, at noon. Interment, with military honors, will follow in S. WI Veterans Memorial Cemetery. There will be time to visit with John’s family at the funeral home on Thursday from 11 a.m. – noon.

A special note of thanks to the entire staffs of Becker-Shoop Center and Odyssey Hospice for the quality care and loving support extended during John’s time of need.
