Stephanie Ann Cross
12/06/1972 - 01/11/2013
If I should go tomorrow, It would never be goodbye, For I have left my heart with you, So don't you ever cry. The love that's deep within me, Shall reach you from the stars, You'll feel it from the heavens, And it will heal the scars.
Angel From Above
        Stephanie grew up in the Willmar area and graduated from Willmar Senior High School in 1991. She took college coursework from several Minnesota universities within her interest areas of English and Writing. She worked many years as a caretaker for people with developmental disabilities and most recently as a Customer Support Specialist for Intelliborn Corporation.  On June 5, 2010, she married the love of her life Tom Cross of Colorado Springs, Colorado. They were true soul mates particularly joined in their love of the outdoors where they spent much time together and where they were married.
        Stephanie was the sweetest little girl ever who captivated her large extended family. Her grandparents Elmer and Barbara Carlson particularly doted upon the little angel who graced their lives. Not surprisingly she grew into a beautiful, caring and sensitive soul always reflecting a strong inner calm that was a source of inspiration to her family. Family meant everything to Stephanie. She was a deeply spiritual person who found solace and inspiration in all of God’s creation, and her strong creativity was expressed in art and writing. Her life was always full of events, of happy moments and joy. She was always ready to help her friends and family in any situation.
