Fletcher - Eleanor Alice (Broe) Cross, 75, passed away on Thursday July 27, 2023 at Northwestern Medical Center in St. Albans. She was born on April 1, 1948, daughter of the late Reginald and Nellie (Rich) Broe. Eleanor married John Cross on July 4, 1970. Eleanor attended BFA Fairfax graduating in 1968. She was a stay-at-home mother raising her 3 children until they were all in school when she began working part-time at Smuggler’s Notch as a room cleaner. She also worked as a private house cleaner as well as a custodian at BFA Fairfax.

Eleanor was an avid knitter, quilter and reader of many romance novels. She loved baking and you could always find a fresh pie, or a batch of homemade buttermilk donuts in her kitchen. In the Summer, you could always find Eleanor and her family canning every vegetable you could imagine as well as making pickles and many jams and jellies. This is a trait that she passed along to her Son Harold and Daughter Stacey who love canning and pickling and learned their love of cooking and baking from her as well. She loved playing cards with friends and family, especially poker and thirty-one but her all time favorite activity was ATV riding with her husband John. Whether it was a quick ride on the trails around their home or an extended trip to Canada or Maine with their many ATV friends. Eleanor was a member of the Fraternal Order of the Eagles No 1527 Auxiliary, Jeffersonville, VT.

Eleanor was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great great grandmother and nothing made her happier than being surrounded by her family.

Eleanor is survived by her loving husband of 53 years John Cross, son Harold Cross and life partner Joseph Russell, two daughters Stacey Sylvestre and partner James DiTullio, Heather Cross, brothers Gary Broe and wife Ann, Greg Broe and partner Cindy Brio, sisters-in-law Pat Broe, Laurie Broe and Vicky Broe, six grandchildren Alexandria Bathalon and husband Brandon, Nathan Cross, Jordan Stevens, Allison Naylor, Liam Sylvestre, Tanysha Sylvestre, five great grandchildren Lucas, Aurora, Shepherd, Scarlett, Nash, several nieces and nephews.

She was also predeceased by her brothers Reginald “Reggie” Broe Jr., Jeffrey Broe, Bert Broe and Michael Broe.

Visiting hours will be held on Wednesday, August 2, 2023 from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. at A W Rich Funeral Home - Fairfax Chapel. Funeral Services will be held on Thursday August 3, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. at the United Church of Fairfax with Reverend Katherine Arthaud officiating. Burial will follow in the family lot in Sanderson Corners Cemetery. A celebration of Eleanor’s life will take place at the Cross Home in Fletcher. Please bring a dish to share if you so choose.
