Patricia Ruth CREES was born February 16, 1930, at her home in rural Decatur, Iowa, and passed away on December 24, 2012
at the Westview Care Center in Leon, Iowa at the age of 82 years.
The eldest child of Michael and Ruth ELLARS CREES,

She attended schools in Decatur and Leon and graduated from Beaconsfield high school.
Patricia dedicated her life to
helping others and she was able to assist several other people in their homes during their final years. Her ability to
remember every family member's birthday was a gift.
Patricia was a proud member of the Leon Brethren Church and
attended regularly for several years. Some of her favorite activities were to attend her alumni banquet, the Brethren
Church song festival and working with flowers in her garden.
Preceding Patricia in death were her father, mother,
brother Willis and infant brother Clarence.
Surviving are her sisters, Barbara CREES JONES of Leon, Iowa and Willa
CREES POORE (Duane) of Mount Ayr, Iowa; sister-in-law, Peggy CREES of Dysart, Iowa; brothers, Kenneth CREES (Bonnye) of
