Rosemary (Walker) Creech

September 17, 1927 ~ October 26, 2021 (age 94)


Rosemary Walker Creech passed away at her home in Morristown, TN on October 26, 2021. 


Born September 17, 1927, in Jefferson County, Tennessee, Rosemary was a beloved and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was preceded in death by her husband, William Edward Creech; parents, William Newton Walker and Minnie Hamilton Walker; and siblings, Curtis (Mary) Walker, and Hazel (Gene) Creswell.  She is survived by her children, Nancy (David) Goodson, Donna Creech, and Mary Will (Lee) Jones; grandchildren, Neil (Elisabeth) Goodson and Ben Goodson; great-granddaughters, Ella and Amelia Goodson; sister, Geraldeen Day and brother, Willis (Julia) Walker; and an especially close niece, Alice Creech (Rick) Moody.  


Rosemary worked with the American Red Cross for 25 years.  Her favorite memory of that time was helping members of the armed services get home to their families. Rosemary baked hundreds of delicious breads, cakes, and pies for her grateful family and friends. She was also a gifted seamstress and creator of many beautiful pieces of needlework.  A member of First United Methodist Church since 1949, Rosemary was active in the Yater Breeding Sunday School Class and her UMW Circle. She enjoyed travel and always looked forward to summers at the beach with her grandchildren. Her kind and gracious nature will be remembered fondly.


 The family wishes to thank Margaret Chris Kyle, Amedisys, Home Instead, Regency Retirement Village, and Dr. John Horner for their compassionate care.
