Whenever I was in Aunt Dee’s presence, we always had laughter and joyous moments. I appreciated her wisdom and I vividly remember when she encouraged me to eat asparagus for the first time. Her beautiful smile is embedded in my memory bank forever.

I would like to thank Almighty God Jehovah because that without him I would never have met some of the finest people on the planet like Dolores Credel

As friends of Gwen, we were truly saddened to hear of the loss of hear dear mother. We had the opportunity to meet her and all of her beauty. No doubt this is a painful time for the family and close friends. As a faithful servant of Jehovah, we look forward to be reunited with her again in peaceful conditions with no suffering and happy smiles. May you be comforted by the kind words and prayers of those near and far and the certain hope for the future. Love, Phillip and Julie Asher

Andy and I both loved Dee during all the years we have known her. She would come on my bible study with Cathy Pitts and share her words of wisdom. As time went on, she continued to be an important part of my life. We knew one another for over the more than 40 years.
She and Glen set such fine examples of not just preaching the Christian life but living it too. Their marriage showed what a success applying Bible principles leads to.
We grew to love all their kids and in-laws and grandkids that we have had the pleasure to meet and be with over the years .
Glen and Dee have shared so much with us all. They shared their laughter, friendship, family, advice , scriptures, meals, home and love. It is hard to imagine the Fair Haven Congregation without our beautiful pioneer sister and friend .
We are better for having had Dolores in our lives, and will be again when we meet up with her - strong and healthy in the new world.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the Credle family.
In the meantime - our prayer for all the Credle family is Colossians 1:11.
Hugs and love. Andy & Irene Ness

I did not know Sis Delores, but do know her daughter Gwen. The spiritual heritage Sis passed on to Gwen is evident. I am a NJ girl as well and was delighted to hear of Delores and Glenwood's rearing of a fine family. Was looking forward to their visit to Panama and meeting them in person but time and unforeseen occurence prevented this. Looking forward to the near future of meeting and getting to know Sis Delores.

To Mr. Credle and Family,
I am so sad to hear about the passing of Mrs. Credle. Having grown up right across the street, there was never a day that she was not cheerful when I played with the kids in the yard or saw her coming and going. She always had a wave, a friendly greeting, and a quick smile. This is a beautiful obituary and I'm comforted to read about her great life. You have my condolences during this time of sorrow and rejoicing. May God welcome her with open and loving arms and she know true peace. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

As You go down memory lane, think of the times she cheered you on, or the stories she told that made you laugh, or the best meal ever that she cooked... May the thought of your mom generate laughter, joy and peace in your heart. Look forward to meeting her soon.

Dolores/Dee, was one of my favorite classmate, from the 1st grade through the 12th. We were members of the Pamlico County High School graduation class of the year of 1957. Dee was a kind and loving person with a dynamic personality.
