Alisha Evon Cross, 56, of Rome, beloved daughter of the late Leon Cross and Edna Cross, made the trip she had been waiting on… to her new home… where her older sister Angela Ann resides.
A native of Columbus, Mississippi, Alisha was born August 5, 1961. She was a graduate of Coosa High School, the University of Georgia, and received her RN degree from Jones County Junior College. Prior to becoming disabled, Alisha was employed as an RN with Redmond Regional Medical Center. She was a strong willed yet pleasant person who would do anything for her friends and family. She loved dogs and enjoyed writing and singing songs.
She leaves her father; brother, Lee Alan (Tammy); sister, Donna Kay Bush (Edmond); and her true love, James “Sonny” Small III, with whom she shared many cherished moments.
“Get prepared and I’ll see you there. I love you all.”
A Celebration of Life is planned for later and will be announced by Parnick Jennings Sr.’s Good Shepherd Funeral Home, who is serving the family of Alisha Evon Cross.
