Doreen Marie (Petriew) Creed
August 22, 1942 – September 24, 2019
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother, sister and friend, Doreen Marie (Petriew) Creed on Tuesday, September 24, 2019. Doreen passed away peacefully in her home at the age of 77 years.
Doreen was predeceased by her parents, John and Marie and her loving husband of 21 years, Bill Creed.
She leaves to mourn her children, son Jim Kortzman (Stephen and Carley) and daughter Susan Johnson (David), brothers John Petriew and Ernie Hershey and sisters, Jean Wiersema, Julie Petriew, Diana Petriew, Debra Horsburgh and Peggy Stuart, step children, Randy, Kim, Debbie, Warren and Shelley, as well as numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
Doreen was an amazing seamstress and participated in countless craft and garage sales. She enjoyed reading, playing cards, golfing and her many casino trips with her sister and friends. Doreen was a kind, loving and generous soul who never hesitated to be there for others whenever she could.
Immediate cremation has taken place and a private service with family will occur at a later date when she will be laid to rest together with Bill, the love of her life. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her honor to the charity of one’s choice.
“When you lose someone you love, you gain an angel you know.”
