Jane M. Creedon, 73, of Brant Rock and Brockton, unexpectedly passed away Tuesday, July 23, 2013, at South Shore Hospital. Jane was stricken seriously ill March 17, and had been slowly recovering at Life Care Center in Scituate. Born Dec. 22, 1939, in Brockton, she was the daughter of the late John J. Creedon and Lauretta (Mackin) Creedon. After graduating from Brockton High School in 1957, she earned both a bachelor's of Arts and a master's of Education degree from Bridgewater University. A lifelong elementary school teacher, Jane retired from Memorial Park School in Rockland where she taught for more than 30 years.

Both before and during her retirement, Jane enjoyed traveling with family and school associates. Her travels included numerous cruises with school associates and several to Europe with family.

Aunt Jane treasured them as if they were her own and cherished every minute with them. Jane leaves her twin sister, Margaret J. Cahill and her husband John of Scituate; and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her sister, Mary, and brothers, David, John, and Edward Creedon.
