Virginia Rae Cross

Virginia R. Cross (nee Hawley) 76, of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, beloved wife of Larry Cross, died on Easter Sunday, April 9, 2023 surrounded by loved ones.

She was born in Akron, Ohio on August 2, 1946, graduated from Triway High School in 1964, earned associate degrees in medical assisting, and worked at various doctor’s offices in the Akron area until her retirement in 2002. She was a member of Redeemer Lutheran Church in Cuyahoga Falls.

Virginia was a generous and selfless woman who loved to help others. She especially loved little ones and fell in love with all of them. Her own grandchildren meant the world to her and they will miss her forever.

She was preceded in death by her parents Hattie and Arthur Hawley, brothers Art, Harold, Melvin, and Jim Hawley, a sister Juanita Taylor, and others she loved and missed. It gives her family peace knowing she had quite a Heavenly welcoming committee.

She is survived by her husband Larry, who she married in 1999, daughter Jennifer Peters (Gregory), son Dale Pyles (Justine), grandchildren Erica Williams (Chris), Brooke Vang (Zi), Evan Peters and Blake Peters, great-grandsons Christopher and Leo Williams, sister Della June Strong of Shreve, Ohio, brother Tom Hawley, and many extended family members and friends too numerous to name. Special thanks to friends who have become family, Greg and Tawni Sigelmier and Sydney Smith.
