    I knew Jackie for many years when she worked on the Adolescent Unit at CHKD as the unit secretary. No matter how busy the unit was she always stayed cool, calm and collected. She was loved and respected by all who knew her. Elegant, chic and classy – That was Jackie. My sympathy and prayers go out to her family.

    My condolences to the Skinner and Creecy family. I served in the Army with Jo Jo, and met Mrs. Creecy in 1980. Although my best friend from the Army has passed on, I remained in contact with Mrs. Creecy and Freddie, visiting last year. May God be pleased with her.

    I was very saddened to hear of the passing of Mrs. Creecy. My deepest sympathy to my brother Freddie, special friend Pat and all her loved ones. She was always regal, high spirited, jovial and wore an infectious smile. Mrs. Creecy would always welcome us in her home and offer us one of her scrumptious home cooked meals. She will be dearly missed. I wish you all peace, comfort and strength today and always. Cherish all the beautiful priceless memories you shared with her. May she rest in paradise. 🌺

    On behalf of Edward Fortson, Sr.& Family and the Greater Deep Creek Elks’ Lodge, I extend my deepest sympathy to the Creecy Family. I had known Ms Creecy for 37 years that I served at the lodge. I can remember how Betty Bussell solicited her delicious desserts for different Elks’ affairs that I too was able to enjoy. May the happy times and precious memories sustain you now and in the days to come.
