Libbie A Creighton
April 18, 1928 – March 11, 2020
Libbie Aline Lee Creighton was called home by the Lord on March 11, 2020 after a short hospital stay for chronic health issues. She was a devoted wife and loving mother and grandmama. Libbie was born on April 18, 1928 in Pensacola. She is preceded in death by her parents Grady and Bessie Lee, her children Elaine Roberts, Thomas Creighton, and Marilyn Holland and by her brother Alvin Lee. Libbie is survived by her husband of 74 years Lamar Creighton, sister Bobbie Lee, sister-in-law Annette Lee, grandchildren Leslie Briggs, Lisa (JL) Callahan, Regina (Laird) Clapper, Wesley Roberts, Peggy (Clint) Walker, David (Angie) Roberts, 17 great-grandchildren, and 23 great-great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. Strong in her faith, Libbie was a member of Immanuel Baptist Church in Pace, served as a post matron of the Order of Easter Star Chapter 253, and worked for the Escambia County School Board as a cafeteria worker for 19 years at Scenic Heights Elementary and Woodham High. Over the years, grandmama sewed hems and costumes for those who needed it, baked favorite cakes of choice on birthdays, and hosted Christmas Eve. Fond memories were made sitting around her table and enjoying one of her treats, especially her pound cake. The family would like to say a special thank you to the West Florida nurses in ICU and Covenant Hospice for giving her the compassionate care she needed. Bayview Fisher-Pou Chapel will be hosting the services on March 16 with visitation at 10:00 a.m. and the funeral at 11:00 a.m.
