Mary "Jan" Cross, 59
Mary "Jan" Cross, 59, a resident of Mountain Home passed away Tuesday, January 14, 2014, at the Baxter Regional Medical Center.
She was born January 4, 1955, in Paragould, Arkansas to the late Cephas Elmer and Mary (Harville) Myrick. Jan's passion was anything fishing. She enjoyed making fishing lures, fishing on Lake Norfork, the Buffalo River and the White River. If the motor failed while fishing, don't worry Jan could fix it. She also enjoyed restoring classic cars. Jan was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Smith-Johnson Post 5742 Auxiliary. She met her soul mate, Beverly S. Welch 15 years ago and they have since been inseparable. Beverly loves her and will miss her with her whole heart. In addition to her parents she is preceded in death by two sisters, Virginia Anderson and Thelma Jean Norman.
Survivors include her soul mate, Beverly S. Welch of Mountain Home; two brothers, Larry Myrick of Delaplaine and Tommy Myrick of Beech Grove; two sisters, Janie Vines of Beech Grove and Ida Wideman of Potosi, Missouri and numerous nieces and nephews.
A special thank you from the family goes to Dr. Lori Chaney, ICU nurses, Linda Stakley and Cheryl Edwards and 3 West nurse, Lisa Mortensen.
