May 21, 1940 - March 25, 2021
Franklin – BARBARA GAYLE PAGE GROSS – passed away peacefully on Thursday, March 25, 2021. She was born on May 21, 1940 to the late George Simpkins and Helen Page in Nashville, TN. Barbara devoted her life to the family and her expression of love was often seen through hosting large family get-togethers which, of course, included ample amounts of great Southern cooking. Whether a birthday, celebration, or holiday, she strived to have her home filled with lively conversation, laughter recalling memories from the past, and even music over the years when gathering for Thanksgiving. Barbara truly adored her grandchildren. The feeling she felt when learning of each grandchild’s successes, whether a good grade at school, a win at a soccer game, learning to drive, or acceptance into college, gave her a sense of pride that would rival even the proudest of parents. What gave her the most pleasure though was taking care of the grandchildren when they were babies. A fitting memory that will not be forgotten is a hymn that she would frequently sing to each grandchild when rocking them to sleep – This World Is Not My Home. Barbara was a member of Trinity Lane Church of Christ then Madison Church of Christ for many years. She also contributed her time and effort to Nashville Inner City Ministries. Barbara is preceded in death by her husband Edward “Edd” J. Gross and youngest brother, Bob (Brenda) Page. She is survived by her sons, Edward J (Amy) Gross, Jamie (Pat) Gross, Jonathan (Cyndi) Gross, and Jeremy (Andrea) Gross; daughter, Jenne (John) Beauchamp; and grandchildren, Addison Gross, Lillian Gross, Nate Gross, Ellen Gross, Grant Beauchamp, Garrett Beauchamp, and Gentry Beauchamp; brother, Don (Sharon) Page and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews. A memorial service will occur at a later date among family members. Donations in Barbara’s memory may be made to Nashville Inner City Ministry.
