OBITUARY

Marjorie W. Creasy

May 6, 1935October 29, 2019

Browns Summit, NC-Marjorie Watlington Creasy was born in Gretna, VA to the late James Ramsey and Onie Shelhorse Watlington, Sr. and passed away at the age of 84 at Hospice Home of Rockingham County on October 29, 2019. A service to celebrate her life will be at 11 AM; Friday, November 1 at Rankin Baptist Church officiated by Reverends Jeff Scronce and John Jarman. The family will receive guests beginning at 10 AM prior to the service. Interment will be at Westminster Gardens Cemetery. Marjorie married Reuben Creasy in 1954 and have celebrated 65 years together raising their children and providing a loving Christian home. She loved her family only second to her Savior, Jesus Christ. They worshipped for 52 years at Rankin Baptist Church where she participated in Wednesday night meal preparation and in previous years taught Sunday school. In addition to being a wonderful homemaker, she also worked for 10 years with Sears mail order. Cooking, needlepoint, crocheting and knitting were some of her favorite past times but she especially enjoyed reminiscing about farm life, laughing over the “good ol’ days”, social gatherings and travel. Her personal challenges as a young girl formed a lifetime of caring for those who struggled or were less fortunate. She leaves a legacy with her family of generosity, humbleness, hard work and Christian living. In addition to Reuben, Marjorie is survived by her children and their spouses, Darrell and Wanda Creasy of McLeansville, NC and Cynthia and Marty Coleman of Stoneville, NC; six grandchildren, Drew, Brooks and Noah Coleman, Melissa Rice, Brittany Attikpo and Brandi Allen; five great grandchildren; brother, Delano Watlington and wife Betty of Danville, VA; and sister, Gladys Thompson of Rocky Mount, NC. In addition to her parents, two sisters and one brother precede her in death. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of Rockingham County, 2150 NC-65, Reidsville, NC 27320 or Rankin Baptist Church, 3317 Summit Ave, Greensboro, NC 27405.

We were so sorry to hear about Marjorie. We both worked with Darrell and Reuben on the railroad and met Marjorie later at railroad retiree events. She was a gracious and lovely woman who will be missed. Thinking about you at this difficult time.

Mr. Creasy, Cynthia, Darrell and families,
Many of my fondest memories of youth involve Mrs.. Creasy and your home. Her smile brought joy and warmth to us all. She knew how to calm the storms that teenagers brought... such as getting the sail boat stuck in a storm or a friend ( me) hitting a reflector in the drive way or girls listening to The Firth Dimension record about twenty times in a day in a way that we felt at home and loved by your family. Mrs.. Creasy was a friend and I looked up to her and learned from her. She had a way of using humor anytime a situation was awkward and that has almost become a lost social grace, but Mrs. Creasy had that in spades! And what a good cook! I will always remember her with great affection. I am so sorry for your loss and I pray that her glorious light shines as a beacon for all who are bereaved in her passing as a reminder of a life well lived in love and service. May God’s Grace cover you all as you navigate this change. I send my love. Donna Ray
