Linda Cremeens Obituary

Linda Mae Cremeens went to be home with Jesus on Nov. 23, 2023. Linda was 79 years young. Linda was born in Broughton, IL to John and Doris Myers on November 6, 1944. Linda married Ronald H. Cremeens from West Frankfort, IL, on June 2, 1962. Her husband, Ronald, survives. To this union they had two beautiful daughters: Kristy Juecka who resides with her husband, Kevin, in Texas; Stacy Shaw who resides in Carterville, IL. Linda and Ron have three wonderful grandchildren: Nicholas Creasey who is a pilot in the U.S. Airforce and Caroline Bush, his fiancé; Madison Shaw who attends Carterville High School; and Elias Shaw who attends Carterville Junior High.

 Linda was preceded in death by her brother Bill Myers and her parents, John and Doris Myers. Linda is survived by her brother Dick Myers and wife Ginny from Decatur, IL; brother Tom and wife Cynthia Myers of Newcastle, OK; sister-in-law Marilyn Myers of Evansville, IN; and brother-in-law Dwight Cremeens of West Frankfort, IL.

Linda received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Education at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale and her Master’s Degree in Education at Rockford College. They moved away to the Dallas, Texas area for Ron to complete seminary. After his graduation, they came back to Benton, Illinois where she taught 3rd grade for 34 years for Benton District 47. After retirement, Linda and Ron came back to Immanuel Baptist Church where they are currently members. Linda was a glorious woman of faith and shared her love through praying for her family and friends. Linda was known for her boisterous laugh, her tender heart, and her giving spirit. Linda impacted so many and will be greatly missed by her family and her many friends. The one thing that she had a tremendous love for beyond her family was her Coca-Cola.
