She was born on June 16,1927. Her parents were Virgil and Myrtle (Strickler) Goldsmith. Her early childhood was spent in the West Point, Ohio area. She was a 1944 graduate of Iberia High School.

Shortly following graduation, Faith married a classmate of hers, Robert Creswell, on October 12, 1945. After their marriage, she moved to the Creswell dairy farm at the intersection of Morrow County Road 30 and Washington Township Road 59. She spent her life on that farm. She was the mother of five children and supported many school and county activities, and was known for her hospitality.

Beginning in 1993, Faith and Robert spent their winters in Frostproof, Florida, where they made many close friends. She was an active member of both the Iberia Presbyterian and the Presbyterian Church in Frostproof. She lived her life serving others and striving to bring glory to God.

She will be greatly missed by her husband, Robert Creswell of Mount Gilead; one son and three daughters: Bill (Ruth) Creswell of Mount Gilead, Sandy (Steve) Woosley of Elyria, Dee (Terry) Rush of Edison, and Ronda (Brent) Winand of Mount Gilead; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

Including her parents, Faith was preceded in death by her youngest daughter, Mary Jean Adams in 2008; and a brother, Wayne Goldsmith in 2013.

Her family will greet friends from 4 - 7 p.m. on Thursday, January 23rd, at the Snyder Funeral Home, Craven Chapel, 67 N. Main St., Mount Gilead. Services celebrating her life will be held on Friday at 11:00 a.m., at the Iberia Presbyterian Church, 8607 Co. Rd. 30, Iberia. Burial will follow in Iberia Cemetery.
