Mozelle Best Creech (November 9, 1944 – October 11, 2018)
It is with a heavy heart that our family announces the passing of a wonderful mother, wife, grandmother, aunt, and friend on the 11th of October, 2018. Mozelle was the daughter of the late William Bryant Best and Doris Holland Best of Clinton, NC. Mozelle grew up in Clinton and was a graduate of Atlantic Christian College in Wilson, NC. She worked as a mortgage broker at Wachovia Bank in Raleigh before retiring to Wendell with her husband Ronnie for 26 years. She was happiest spending time with her family at home or at Kerr Lake. Mom will always be remembered as a strong, independent woman with lots of love and time for her granddaughters and nieces. Mozelle was preceded in death by her loving husband William Ronnie Creech.
Mozelle will be missed greatly by her son and daughter-in-law Louis and Heather Clarke, granddaughters, Hannah and Clara Clarke, granddaughter and husband, Kristine and Dustin Holcombe, great grandson Kaine Holcombe, sister-in-law and husband Dianne and Doug Fish, and twin nieces Madeleine and Caitlin Fish.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made in memory of Mozelle Creech, to the “Rex Foundation Angel Fund”, 2500 Blue Ridge Rd, Suite 325, Raleigh, NC 27607.
A funeral service in memory of Mozelle will be held at 2:00pm Sunday October 14, 2018 at Strickland Funeral Home in Wendell. The family will receive friends immediately following the service at
Mozelle was indeed strong and independent. She was smart and loving. Mozelle was FUN. Moments spent with Mozelle included smiles and laughter. May all the beautiful memories brighten your days and warm your hearts in the days ahead, as Mozelle’s physical presence will be missed so much. Thankfully, she will forever live in the hearts and minds of all who knew and loved her. I pray that Mozelle’s family will be covered with the peace and comfort that God so freely gives.
