Obituary for Kathleen Carolyn McCreary

November 6, 2017
Langhorne, Pennsylvania


Kathleen Carolyn McCreary, age 96, passed away peacefully in Langhorne PA on November 6, 2017. She was known for her great warmth, personal resilience, and pride in her family. Kathleen spent her early years in Philadelphia, part of a strong and close family of six girls and one boy. She married James McCreary, Jr. and shared her life with him for 62 years, ending with his death. Together they raised three children, Kathleen Brett of Newtown PA, Jamie McCreary of Turlock CA, and James McCreary III of Burlington NJ.

As her children grew, Kathleen built a career in healthcare, serving as the Director of Admissions for Bryn Mawr Rehabilitation Hospital. She and James lived in West Chester PA for many years before relocating to Malvern to enjoy the open landscapes of Chester County. Kathleen took pride in gardening, a calling she learned from her mother. She also joined her husband Jim in boating adventures on Chesapeake Bay and was in the front row for any production her grandchildren joined. She traveled through Europe, the Northeast, and California with her family.

Kathleen's loss is acutely felt by her three children and their spouses, Brenden Brett, Robert Yockey, and Dawn Sullivan McCreary. She also will be deeply missed by her grandchildren Bevin Westfield, Meredith Brett, and Maegan Behm. Their memories of special time with Grammi will comfort them always. Her greatest joy in recent years was spending time with them and her six great grandchildren, watching with joy as the youngest generation laughed and played around her.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend Kathleen's Memorial Mass at 10 am on November 17, 2017 at Our Lady of Grace Church, 225 Bellevue Ave, Penndel, PA 19047. The family with hold brief visitation in the church lobby starting at 9 am.
