FERN LORRAINE McCREEDY,
90, of Cass City, passed away following a lengthy illness Saturday, April 25, 2020 in Courtney Manor Skilled Nursing and Rehab of Bad Axe. She was born July 8, 1929 in Caseville to Vern and Mary (Cobb) Langley. She married Harvey Alger McCreedy March 4, 1950 in the Caseville Methodist Church. He died October 27, 1999.
Fern graduated from Bay Port High School. She worked for various companies over the years, including Sherwood on the Hill and General Cable. Fern had a passion for singing. She sang at weddings, in the Sutton Sunshine Methodist Church choir, with the Tom Thumb Singers, to her family; quite frankly to anyone that would listen. Fern was known to call loved ones to sing a song, and if they didn’t answer, she would sing anyway in a message. She also enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, reminiscing about her younger years, growing up in Caseville and all of the fun she used to have there. Fern loved to cook, bake, write and read poetry, eat sweets (even when she knew she was not supposed to) and spend time with her cat Nikki.
She was passionate about her faith in the Lord and prayed for her family and loved ones every night. Fern was always asking people if they knew Jesus. She was known for her quick wit and always had a new joke to tell. This same wit continues to be passed down to further generations.
Fern is survived by her children: Mitch (Sharron) McCreedy of Deford, Robert (Gail) McCreedy of Gagetown, James McCreedy of Gagetown, Marie McCreedy of Cass City, Bill (Toni) McCreedy of Cass City, Gayl Ann (Richard) Patera of Cass City, Tim McCreedy of Caro, Diana (Kurt) Mika of Unionville; fifteen grandchildren; ten great grandchildren; sisters-in-law: Dorothy McCreedy of Cass City, Leona Langley of Caseville; her very special friend, Jesus Christ. She was preceded in death by her husband, Harvey; two infant sisters; brothers: Fred Langley, Eugene Langley, Ed Langley.
