  4. Rest well dear lady. I will think of the times I would ride my bicycle by your house, see you in the garden and stop for a chat. You knew me since I was 6 and we’d laugh about the “trouble”Eddie and I would get in at St Brendan’s. How he’d untangled my Rosary beads and we were spoken to for talking. We’d talk about our mutual love of flowers and the changes we had both seen over the years. You had a wonderful laugh. There are no words I can offer to ease the pain your family feels right now. I can only say that you touched more lives than you’ll ever know and I will look to the sky for the newest, brightest star and I will wave hello. To all of Mrs. Creighton’s family my deepest condolences on your loss.

  5. To my dear GG, you will be missed greatly. We all looked up to you. I can only imagine how it feels to be reunited with your husband, sons and the rest of your family that past. You were a humble women of beauty and strength. Your family loves you and your name will forever live.

  9. We are so sorry for the loss of your loved one. As extended family members we also are grieving with you. As we all know Ms. Rose will be greeting us all when we are united in Heaven. She is now and thru eternity surrounded by peace and happiness. Keep her in your heart and never let go of the memories.

  10. I know there is a special place in heaven for my Aunt. She took care of all of us, from cutting hair when we were boys to that cup of coffee that was always available no matter when you dropped by. Though I may not have visited as often as I might have, the times I did will forever be etched in my mind and carried in my heart. I will sorely miss her.

  11. Jane Ryan
    The entire Ryan Family feels your loss. She was a beautiful woman inside and out. Growing up she was wonderful with every kid in the neighborhood. Graciously looking out for all of us. A wonderful wife, mother and neighbor. The Riverside Community will forever have a void. Prayers and Hugs from the Ryan’s.

  12. The last time I saw my Aunt Marie was Sunday, July 1. Noticing that her calendar was still on June, I turned the page for her, which gave us the opportunity to chat about our upcoming schedules. She was so looking forward to family coming to visit and trips to Newport Playhouse and Wright’s Farm. But, as it happens, God had other plans.
    She was my mentor, my aging coach, my family historian. She served me coffee on Sunday mornings with a side of motherly wisdom and good humor. I will simply never know another person who possessed such ordinary grace. I have had no time to prepare for losing her and will have to be comforted by the knowledge that this was the way she would have chosen to leave this world. So, For the remainder of my days, I will hold her beautiful spirit in my heart.

  13. GG you always made me feel like I was part of the family…my ? is broken gg was the like one who made us all feel like w family ..T hese chirstamas’ we had at her house were never forgotten…She taught me so much and I’m sure she is an angel right now…love you gg

  14. Great aunt Marie was a very special woman. I will remember her with a smile. She always welcomed me and everyone else with love. God bless her and her family ❤

  15. Aunt Marie has always been there for us. Her love and kindness knew no bounds. Her home was always a welcoming place; stopping by in the winter to warm up when walking home from school, picking pears in the summer, watching the parade, and visiting mémé. Her cheerful voice rings in my memories. Aunt marie, you will be sorely missed. My love and condolences go out to all of my Creighton cousins. Rest in peace, dear Aunt Marie.

  16. Love and Prayers to all the Creightons. We are thinking of you all with love and fond memories of our beautiful Aunt Marie.
