On December 28, 2021, Barbara Cross of Perry passed away unexpectedly following a heart-related issue. Born in Macon in 1945, Barbara was a lifelong resident of Perry. She was a graduate of Perry High School and went on to complete college courses as well as a program of medical transcription. Her career years were spent at Robins Air Force Base, from which she retired as Electronics Division Operations Office Chief. She enjoyed her management role there and was liked and revered by her team members and colleagues. An avid reader, she also enjoyed (and was very good at) Sudoku, Words with Friends, and crossword puzzles.

Her family will miss her deeply, but all are grateful for the 76 years of her life. Barbara was predeceased by her loving husband, Lee Cross; and her son, Lee Cross Jr. Also preceding her in death were her parents, Edward James May and Annie Ella May; her half-brother, Ernest Foster; and half-sister, Effie Knickerbocker; as well as her brother, Franklin May; and sisters, Evelyn Cox, Juanita Mason, and Vera McDonald.
