Barbara Agnes Creswell

January 22, 1935 ~ March 11, 2022 (age 87)


Barbara Agnes Creswell, 87 years of age, went to be with her savior, Jesus Christ, in heaven on Friday, March 11, 2022.  Agnes was reunited with her mother (Janie), father (Sam), and her four brothers (Clarence, Ligon, William & Bobby) who were waiting with Jesus to welcome her for a joyful family celebration.

Miss Agnes was a native Highlander who lived in the same house where she was born on January 22, 1935, until she admitted herself into Eckerd Living Center at Highlands- Cashiers Hospital on April 10, 2018.  Everyone who knew her was blessed by her as she shared love through numerous acts of ministry.  She devoted her entire life to caring for her family, friends, and community.  She was a life-long member of First Baptist Church, and she donated her time and money to several Christian organizations.  The pace she lived her life was the same way she used to drive her car;  having only one speed which was "wide open-full throttle".  Miss Agnes will be fondly remembered and greatly missed!

Heartfelt appreciation is conveyed by her surviving family members to all the staff and doctors at Eckerd Living Center and Highlands-Cashiers Hospital who demonstrated such patient kindness an excellent care for our Miss Agnes so she could live a quality of life the way she wanted to live it.  We also express thanks and appreciation to Four Seasons Hospice for going above ad beyond our expectations while showing love, respect, encouragement, and comfort to her.

A private family service will be held in the future to place Miss Agnes in her resting place in the family burial plot at Highlands Memorial Park.

In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to Four Seasons The Care You Trust ("Hospice"), 571 South Allen Road, Flat Rock, NC  28731.
