Gertrude Lillian Cross

Winooski - Gertrude Lillian Cross, 84, passed away on August 9th, 2020 at Our Lady of Providence, Winooski.

Gertrude was born in Mallets Bay, Colchester, Vermont to James and Sarah (Loyzelle) Cross. She graduated from Mount St. Mary's Academy and then obtained her Bachelor of Arts from Trinity College in Burlington, Vermont. She also received a Masters in Education from UVM as well as a Masters of Arts in Theology from St. Mike's College. She taught the Rite of Christian Initiation in parishes in the greater Burlington area, was involved with Adult Religious Education, especially Scripture. She taught religion at Rice Memorial High School for 19 years; she retired in 2004 and continued as a sub at Rice. She was also a part of the High School Reach Out program in St. Johnsbury. Gertrude was an Oblate with Monastery of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. In her spare time, she indulged her love of classical theater music and traveling. She was also hooked on Civil War history.

Gertrude was preceded in death by her parents, brothers, James, Peter, Arthur, John, and sister-in-law Joan and brother-in-law Tom Amandro.

Gertrude is survived by her brother Joseph Cross (Judy) from Underhill, VT, sister Ann Amandro from Fort Pierce, FL, sisters-in-laws Rosemary Cross from Colchester, VT, Tade Cross, from Winston-Salem, NC, special niece Christy Hall, from Colchester, VT, and many other nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank the staff of Our Lady of Providence for the loving care they provided to Gertrude.

A quote that would reflect her life, "Lord, help me to remember that nothing is going to happen to me today that you and I cannot handle together."

Sister I will miss you more than words can say. I remember our conversation when I was in Vermont and now I understand why you told me the things you did. Now you are with the majority of our family, how lucky you are. May you Rest In Peace and know that you will be missed. Love you always.

I worked with Gert Cross at Rice Memorial High School.
I was the attendance secretary so I saw her everyday.
I did enjoy her, but didn't have much time with her.
I never realized she lived in Winooski, as I was brought up in Winooski.
My condolences to her family.
Rest in peace Gert.
take care
Steve and Marilyn Luchini
