Conesus ~ Marie A. Cross, age 73, of Turkey Hill Road, passed away Monday morning (July 25, 2022) at Strong Memorial Hospital in the loving presence of her family.
She was born March 9, 1949 in Batavia, a daughter of the late Charles and Eleanor Dries Cummings.
Marie lived a life of faith and love, dedicated to her husband and family. She will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and dear friend to many. She loved family gatherings and brought a quiet warmth and positive presence everywhere she went. Her passion for sewing, baking, gardening, and cooking grew from the joy her mother and grandmothers found in these activities. She continued the thread of learning by lovingly teaching these skills to each of her own children and grandchildren.

Cross, Renee (Mark) Hopkins, Brenda (Jim) Bell, Sarah (Brett) Orr, Ellen (Scott Laubenheimer) Cross, and Laura (Matthew) Dumuhosky; grandchildren Kristiana, Felicia, Jacob (Jennifer), Gabrielle, Ethan, Tyler, Charlie, Elijah, Shane (fiancé, Kaitlin), Seth (Tori), Hannah, TJ, Noah, Emma, Drake, Clyde, Taylor, Abigail, Estelle, and Lenore; great grandchildren Lanson and Roselyn; brothers, Charles (Julie) Cummings and William Cummings; sisters, Joan (Wayne) Sovocool and Mary (Michael) Griffith, along with many nieces and nephews.
