August 26, 1937 - May 29, 2021

Barbara A. Creech, 83, of Palatka, went to be with the Lord Saturday, May 29, 2021 at Lakeland Regional Health Medical Center in Lakeland.

Barbara was born in Middlesboro, KY and was a 1954 graduate of Cumberland High School in Cumberland, KY. She lived in Palatka from 1963-1969 coming from Cumberland, KY. She moved with her family to Orlando, FL where she and her husband were active members of Holden Heights Baptist Church and Florida Shores Baptist Church. While in Orlando, they were part of an "extended family of believers" who were great friends to them - friendships that continue to this day.

Claude and Barbara returned to Palatka in 1979 where they invested their lives together for their Lord, serving actively as members of Peniel Baptist Church where she taught Sunday School and Vacation Bible School, sang in the choir, and assisted with their Faith Outreach. She especially enjoyed traveling with her husband, having visited many states and Canada. Barbara went on a mission trip to Brazil after her husband passed to work with her son and daughter-in-love. She also traveled to Colorado with her daughter recently to spend Christmas with her family there.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Claude Creech; her parents, George and Polly Graves; and ten brothers and sisters.

Surviving are a son and daughter-in-law, Mark and Linda K. Creech of Lakeland; a daughter, Julia Creech of Palatka; nine grandchildren, Chuck Hopcraft (Nicole), Matt Hopcraft, Justin Creech (Dani), Keilan Creech (Marin), Kinnis Thomas (Stephanie), Jaycee Luther (Chris), Nolan Creech (McKenna), Justin Thomas (Heather), and Cassie Williams (Jordan); thirteen great grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Memorial services will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, June 19th at Peniel Baptist Church in Palatka with Pastor Benny Reynolds officiating. The family will receive friends at the church one hour prior to the service. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Peniel Baptist Academy, 110 Peniel Church Road, Palatka, FL 32177, which she and her husband loved.
