Vada Rae Cross, 85, of Siloam Springs, Arkansas, passed away on September 16, 2022, at Siloam Springs Regional Hospital.
Vada was born to Thomas Kirkland Park and Vergie Lee Mason Park on January 27, 1937, in Flint, Oklahoma. She worked several jobs through her life including Allen’s Canning, Cobb Hatchery, a cook at the Wagon Wheel Café in West Siloam Springs with her sister Leota and retiring from the U.S. Post Office as a Rural Route Carrier after 14 years. She enjoyed oil painting, reading western novels, and dancing – a pastime she continued well into her sixties. In recent years, she missed going to church and connecting with her friends at the Siloam Springs Bible Church.
She is survived by four sons: Dallas Cross of Highfill, Arkansas, Travis Cross of Colcord, Oklahoma, Waco Cross of Denver, Colorado, and Cody Cross of Stillwell, Oklahoma; two daughters: Donna Smith of Grove, Oklahoma, and Toni Shelley of Watts, Oklahoma; seven grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents, one daughter, Dana Ann Cross; a twin sister, Veda Sappington; two sisters: Wanda Keating and Leota Kendrick; and one brother, Duane Park.
