Cross, Janice M. (Heffernan) of Hyde Park, passed away on January 20th after a brief illness, that she fought so courageously against Multiple Myeloma. 

 She is survived by her spouse Robert Cross of Readville. Her beloved daughters Lyndsay and Michael MacNeil and Jamie Cross of Hyde Park.  She was the loving sister of the late Linda Heffernan, Richard Heffernan of New York, James and Debra Heffernan of Millis, and her first Best Friend and twin Judith Heffernan of Milford MA. 

Janice was also known affectionately as "Nannybug" to her three Grandchildren, Kendall, M.J. and Shayne MacNeil of Hyde Park. 

 Janice was also survived by many loving nieces and nephews, as well as many lifelong dedicated friends. 

She was a long time Letter Carrier at the Roslindale Post Office. 

In her spare time Janice enjoyed very much to spoil and love her grandchildren. On a warm summer day she would often have her toes in the sand soaking up the sun with friends. She was known to frequent her favorite store Ocean State Job Lot, and last but certainly not least she was an avid fan of The Judge Judy court show.
