Today we celebrate the life of Kimberly (Kim) Cross. She was born in Dayton, Ohio on October 7th, 1956 to William (Bill) Cortney and Joyce Cortney. She had two younger sisters; Jean Sweeney, and Marcee Schnieders. Her early years were spent moving around the U.S. and Europe while her father served in the Air Force. Upon starting high school, her family moved to Seward, Nebraska where she graduated in 1975 from Seward High School. She was married to Kenneth Cross on June 12th, 1976 at the Seward Catholic Church. She attended South East Community College in Lincoln, NE and graduated with a dental assistant associate degree. After graduation she worked as a dental assistant in York, Nebraska.
Kim lived 28 years in Beaver Crossing, Nebraska where she enjoyed participating in Homemakerís Club, card club, taught bible school and Sunday school. She loved gardening and showing off her plants. She took pride in the appearance of her home when decorating for holidays. She was a huge animal lover and nursed numerous sick animals back to health. She was well known for her creative and embellished stories. She is loved by her friends because of her kind, caring, and supportive nature. She was always sharing and welcoming to strangers; willing to share her life story. She loved spending time with her friends and family and arranging many get-togethers. She may be remembered most for her special Christmas letters she sent out every year. Her sense of humor was one of her best qualities.
Kimís lifeís joy was her three children and two grandchildren. While they were growing up she was very active in their extracurricular activities. Her children were blessed by her strong family ties and commitment to traditions. She was a wonderful baker and cook, often delivering delicious Christmas trays to her friends and family.
