In loving memory of Lyndell McCreedy

June 12, 2019

Mom passed away peacefully at her home in Gainesville today. She is survived by her family:
– Sister Virginia Sue Wheeler of Gainesville, FL

– Son Brad, wife Evangeline, of Newberry and their children
– Granddaughter Maren McCreedy Cochrane her husband Brian and their daughter Madeline Rose of Aurora, CO

Born Lyndell Davis in Seminole County Oklahoma, her family worked hard to make a living during the dust bowl and great depression before moving to California when she was twelve.

She graduated from Santa Ana High School and attended Pepperdine College for one year before moving to Vista, California.

In Vista, she met and married John McCreedy, a decorated WWII war veteran who had settled in Northern San Diego County from his family home in Iowa.

John and Lyndell raised their family in San Diego before moving to Florida in 1972. In Jacksonville, they worked together in a family business until John passed away in 1985.

Lyndell retired to Gainesville in 1992. She was a member of Glen Springs Road Church of Christ.

At her request, there will not be a service. She will be laid to rest next to her husband in Jacksonville. Donations can be made to Haven Hospice 4200 NW 90th Blvd.
Gainesville FL 32606 in lieu of flowers.

    I only actually met Lyndell once, but I was familiar with her, and my wife and I are good friends with John and Kathy. John and I have reason to believe that Lyndell and my mother played tennis on competing high school teams in Southern California in the 1940s.

    Our condolences go out to the family.
