Obituary of Elizabeth S. Cross

Elizabeth Slemmer Cross, age 87, died Saturday, August 25, 2013 at her home in Lansdale. She was the wife of the late Richard Cross of Abington. Born in Phoenixville on December 31, 1925, she was the daughter of the late Jacob and Agnes (Milligan) Slemmer. In her younger years, she had attended art school and received her Bachelor of Arts degree in education from West Chester University. Mrs. Cross was a member of St. Thomas Church, Whitemarsh for many years prior to moving to Lansdale to live with her daughter, Christine Madison, at which time she began attending the Church of the Messiah, Gwynedd. Recently, she enjoyed spending recreational time at the Visiting Nurse Association’s Elder Care in Lansdale. As an ardent supporter of the Voices of Gwynedd, she rarely missed a concert. Her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren were the love of her life and she cherished the time she spent with them. Along with her daughter Christine (wife of John Londergan), she is survived by her children Richard Cross of Leeds, Alabama, Cynthia DelMoore of Towamencin, and Daryl Cross of Bridgeport, eight grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. Relatives and friends are invited to her memorial service in the Church of the Messiah, 1001 DeKalb Pike, Lower Gwynedd PA 19002 on Wednesday afternoon at 4:30.
