Nancy (Cross) King, 77, of Union, passed away suddenly on October 3, 2017. Nancy was surrounded by her family when she drifted off to be with the Lord. She was born to Mike and Jean (Maloney) Cross of Bromley, KY on February 27, 1940. Nancy went to St. James Elementary School and Dixie Heights High School.

She had a great love of people (especially her grandkids), animals, and nature. You could always count on Nancy for an infectious laugh and kind words. She enjoyed getting together for lunch with her high school class of 1958 “Dixie Chicks”. Nancy was a very loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother.
