So sorry for your loss. I know how much she meant to the family. My sincerest sympathies.
Mary Anne was a very sweet and friendly lady who we consider a good friend from our Park Springs Community, a member of our Church, St. Stephens the Martyr in Lilburn, Ga.
Her great smile will be missed by all who knew her. May God welcome in his kingdom in heaven. God Bless her family always.
Mary Ann was a true and real lady. Always with that wonderful smile and so cheerful. I greatly admired and respected her.
A kind woman. I recall our peaceful days sitting at the old Rockbridge pool! RIP. Pat Hamilton
My sincerest condolences to the Creagan Family. Mary Anne was a lovely lady. It was an honor to sit by her at Mass. She always had a smile on her face and looked so elegant in her suits. When a vendor came to Corpus Christi before the Vigil Mass selling wood products from the Holy Land, she and I shopped together in the Stone Mountain Room and each bought a Nativity. Mary Anne is from the city of my late husband’s birthplace. She and her late husband were at one of the Masses dedicated to my husband after his passing. There will only be two Libras instead of three (Debby and me) standing together for Birthday blessings after Mass in October.
Who ever heard of a family of seven children living next door to another family of seven children?! Well, that would be Tom and Mary Ann Creagan next door to Hank and Betty Bruser in Baton Rouge, back in the day.
Mom and Mrs. Creagan were close in only ways moms of large families could be, I suppose. The neighbor ladies on Ormandy Dr. gave a going away party for Mrs Creagan.
Mom really missed Mrs. Creagan once the move was a reality. They’d write and Mom
savored those letters from Buckhead and later Stone Mtn.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all the family at this time and our love❤️
