May 26, 1937 ~ March 16, 2023
Born in: Digby, Nova Scotia, Canada
Resided in: Anderson, IN
Muriel Frances Creek (nee Graham)
Muriel was born in Digby, Nova Scotia, Canada, part of a large family raised by her parents, Reta and Lawrence Graham. She took advantage of an invitation to move to the U.S. during her youth and along the way met her future husband and the father of her children, Norman Creek. Together they settled in Anderson, Indiana where her husband’s parents – Clyde and Fern Creek – lived, and there they raised their three children, Carl Creek, Reta (Creek) Parks and Norma Jean (Creek) Darnell.
During the course of her life, she worked in the nursing profession, operated her own business as a daycare provider and earned a CDL drivers license to try out long-haul trucking. Her favorite location for vacationing became Hawaii after visiting there with a friend and she often spoke of its beauty as the ideal representation of God’s intention for a perfect earth.
She is preceded in death by her parents and husband as well as brothers, Lawrence (Buddy) Graham; Clarence Graham and Alden Graham. In addition to her children, she leaves behind her daughter-in-law, Kelly Creek; grandchildren Kamden Creek, Cody Creek, Cheyenne Griffet, Brianne Griffet, Brian Griffet, Kris Griffet and Stella Parks as well as several great-grandchildren. Her siblings include brothers, Eugene, Conrad and William (Billy) Graham; and sisters Ruth Peck, Rosanne Gregory, Sandra Graham, Shirley Lewis, Carol Lewis and Gloria Gregory.
May each of you find courage to face tomorrow as you rest in the knowledge that we truly care about each of your needs and that we will be here to walk beside you in your journey of grief.

My thoughts and love are with all Aunt Muriels family both in the States and Canada. May she rest easy.
Muriel was a gentle soul living in a tough world. She loved Nova Scotia, her trips home to visit, exploring the beaches and villages she remembered from childhood. She believed the words of our mother who would often say…..someday there will be no more sighing, no more crying, no more dying.
My heart goes out to Norma, Carl and Reta. Also, the grandchildren and great grandchildren of Muriel. Far away in distance but not from the heart.
My Sister Muriel
I treasure all the memories
The ones I hold so dear
The things we shared together
Because we had some brilliant times
Hence it is very true
Smiles are never far away
When I think of you
You were very special
And I want to say
That it really breaks our hearts
You are not here today
Sending sympathy and love to Norma, Carl and Reta and their families.
I can’t do this, we didn’t have the best relationship and I’m so sorry for that. I wish things could have been different between my families and we didn’t fight as much and things were more peaceful. I hope that you lay in rest now with no regrets and know that your family will push on and hold on to the good memories we had with you. You were loved and no matter what is said you’ll always be in our memories as a strong woman who didn’t tolerate bull, and did the best she could to follow Jehovah. I love you. No matter our differences, you could make me smile and laugh. I’m sorry we didn’t have more time. I’ll cherish the time we did have. I love you.
I didn’t know you well aunt Muriel.
I pray that one day I will get to know you, when the earth is beautiful and our pain will be no more.
Remember the promise.
Remember jehovah can’t lie.
May the quiet places of your hearts be filled with sweet echoes of your mothers love. Take comfort in knowing that we care and were sorry to hear about Muriel. I’m sure the memories you have will be forever treasured and that they will bring you comfort and peace .
Muriel’s sister Ruth wants the extended family to know that her thoughts and love are with you.
Norma Jean I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
I have a lot of good memories of Grammy and wish she had gotten the chance to meet her great grandsons
I remember Muriel being called Butch, her husband said her pretty name was to sweet to use in his auto racing world. Would love to see her home in Nova Scotia, it always sounded much more interesting then Indiana.
I wish I could have met you Aunt Muriel. I hope we will 1 day meet past the pearly gates.
Love your niece Tanya ❤️
