Betty Creese

Betty passed away Dec. 2, 2013, with her husband of 63 years, Stanley, at her side in Grass Valley, Calif.

Betty was active as a real estate broker and appraiser in the east San Francisco Bay Area for more than 40 years until retiring with her much-loved husband, Stanley, to live near their daughter and son-in-law in the beauty of the Sierra Nevada foothills.

Betty enjoyed gardening and reading during her retirement years. Betty and Stanley were avid travelers with their most recent expedition being a 28-day cruise throughout Europe and the Mediterranean in October of this year.

In addition to her loving husband, Stanley, she will be profoundly missed by her son, Mark; his wife, Diane, and their two children, Alexander and Laura; son Brent; his wife, Jeri, and their son, Jerod; daughter Renée King; her husband, Casey, and their daughter, Tambra Fisher. Betty is also survived by her sister, Donna Silva; Donna’s husband, Louis, and their children, beloved niece Patricia Swallow and nephew Mitchell Silva.
