Obituary for Marylou Creal

After a protracted battle with cancer, Marylou Creal died on April 3, 2019 in Charlotte, NC at the age of 54. Sheleaves behind a loving family, including her mother, Bonnie, long-time partner, John, three sons, Will, Cody and Noah, daughter in-laws, Melissa and Kara, and grandson, James.

Marylou was born on October 6, 1964 in Beaufort, SC, to father, Robert Creal and mother, Bonnie Creal. She grew up in a committed and loving military family with sister, Sharon and brother, Richard. Marylou graduated from the University of East Carolina with a Bachelor of Science in Science Education in 1987. With an intense passion for education, Marylou would go on to earn her Masters of Education from Campbell University in 2002, achieve National Board Certification in 2005 and spend more than 26 years in the classroom teaching middle and high school sciences. Despite being diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2016, Marylou would remain dedicated to education, teaching classes for the next 18 months and being named Stokes County teacher of the year in 2018.

In addition to her lifelong devotion to teaching, Marylou also had a passion for cooking, traveling and all things outdoors. However, Marylou’s single greatest calling in life was being an exceptionally loving, self-sacrificing and devoted mother to her three sons, Will, Cody and Noah.
