Elizabeth A. CreedonShrewsbury – Elizabeth A. Creedon, 86, lifelong Shrewsbury resident, died Wednesday, February 28, 2024, at Notre Dame Healthcare in Worcester, with family members at her side.

She was born in Worcester, daughter of the late James A. Creedon, Sr. and Grace M. (Wyman) Creedon. Elizabeth graduated from Shrewsbury High School in 1955 and then graduated from Worcester City Hospital School of Nursing in 1958. She later earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from Assumption College in 1983. Elizabeth completed her higher education with a Master’s Degree in Nursing from Anna Maria College in 1988.

Elizabeth enjoyed a lengthy career as a Registered Nurse. She was a true nurse at heart and loved both her work and colleagues at Worcester City Hospital, and was dedicated to her patients until City Hospital’s closure in 1995. Elizabeth counted several of her City Hospital co-workers among her dearest friends, including Cathy Stevens and Kay Paladino.

Elizabeth had a flair for life, an appreciation for proper etiquette, and a zesty sense of humor. She and her dear brother, David, delighted in hosting family and friends for laughs and lively conversation in the backyard garden of their historic family home while enjoying delectable repasts accompanied by sociable libations.

Elizabeth and David were longtime, active members of the St. John’s High School community and cherished their friendships with Stephen and Virginia Gregory, Paul Jourcin, and Maryanne Kenary, among several others.

Elizabeth loved the arts, music, and theater, frequenting performances by students of St. John’s High School, and also by professional performers around the region. As a lifelong resident of Shrewsbury, Elizabeth enthusiastically studied and discussed the town’s history as a member of the Shrewsbury Historical Society. She was a faithful member of Saint Mary’s Parish, and also enjoyed visiting other churches with David for Mass. Elizabeth loved her pets over the years including Maggie the St. Bernard dog, but far and away her favorite companion was a feline named Ned Devine who ruled the manor.

The final Creedon of her generation marking the end of an era, Elizabeth is survived by several nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews, great-grandnieces, and great-grandnephews. Elizabeth was predeceased by her dear siblings: James A. Creedon, Jr., Chandler P. Creedon, Sr., Grayce O’Neil, Martha E. Riley, and David P. Creedon.

Elizabeth’s family wishes to sincerely thank her longtime nurse care managers, Bonnie and Mary; her longtime aide, Ama; and the outstanding, tender staff at Notre Dame Healthcare & Hospice. The sunset of Elizabeth’s life was peaceful, pleasant, and dignified, thanks to this wonderful team of caregivers.
