Beverly J. “Gram” Crossley, 82, of Mingo Junction, OH passed away Friday, March 25, 2022 at Jefferson Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA.
She was born on January 18, 1940 in Steubenville, OH, a daughter of the late Michael and Helen (Yingst) Tatar. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband Robert L. Crossley; a daughter, Cindy Hickman; a brother, Michael Tatar; a great-grandson, Bryce Fankhauser; and a great-granddaughter, Ashlyn Beard.
Gram was a spit fire and loved to sit on her porch. She loved turtles, gorillas, and was the worst at keeping secrets.
