Betty E. Creech, 88, Greensburg, went to heaven Sunday, Oct. 16, 2016, surrounded by her family.
The daughter of Albert and Mathilda (Hueffmeyer) Wheeldon was born Oct. 22, 1927, in Batesville. She was a 1946 graduate of Batesville High School. On Aug. 31, 1948, she married Fred Creech in Carrolton, Kentucky, and he was waiting for her in heaven.
Before Betty started her family, she worked at Batesville Casket Co. After she raised her daughter, she went on to get her degree from Indiana University to teach piano and violin lessons. She taught for 35 years and cherished every student she had.
She enjoyed various types of art, crocheting, knitting, coloring, music, playing piano and violin, spending time along the Ohio River with her husband, and creating memories with her family and friends.
Survivors include her daughter Sherry Brown, her granddaughter Lisa (Shawn) Harden and two great-grandchildren, Heather and Bailey Harden, all of Columbus; and several nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband and two sisters, Katherine Webster and Helen Webb.
Visitation for family and friends will be held Friday, Oct. 21, from 11 a.m. until the 1 p.m. service at Gilliland-Howe Funeral Home, Greensburg. Burial will follow at St. Paul's United Methodist Cemetery, Sunman. Memorial contributions may be made to Our Hospice of South Central Indiana. Please leave your memories and condolences for the family in their online tribute book at www.gilliland-howe.com.
