Nora Morrill Creer

Aug 4, 2022

Nora Morrill Creer passed away peacefully July 24, 2022 with her children by her side. Born September 13, 1937 in Tridell, Utah, Nora resided in Springville for over 56 years.

Nora was passionate about serving others. For many years she was on the Women’s Endowment Committee for the Festival of Trees which raises money for Primary Children’s Hospital. Nora also served as President for the Women’s Legislative Committee. She made many lifelong friends during her tenure with these committees.

With a passion for art, Nora and her husband Glade not only supported the local art community but also artists they would encounter while traveling. She also served as secretary on the Springville Arts Commission and took up painting in her later years.

Nora was also an incredibly talented home decorator and hostess. She, along with Glade, hosted many dinners and fundraisers in their home. Additionally, Nora was an avid gardener and won many awards for her roses in the annual Springville Art City Days Flower Show. And while her children were young, she was their biggest cheerleader, never missing a sporting event, music lesson or dance recital.

Nora was preceded in death by her sons Jay and Nyle and loving husband Glade. She is survived by her children Jerry (Jennifer) Holdaway, Susan (Kenneth) Trahan, Anna (Hugh) Bjarnson, Paul (Bethany) Creer; sisters Fern Wilkinson, Mary Weaver, Elma Shipp, Ella Wilson; 12 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Per Nora’s request, a private gathering for immediate family will be held.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Wheeler & Sundberg-Olpin Funeral Home, Springville. For full obituary please visit www.wheelermortuaries.com
