Hubbard- Martha Jane Creed, 90, peacefully passed at home surrounded by family Saturday, Feb. 25, 2023.
Jane was a peaceful warrior. She fought her battle with cancer with optimism and persevered much
longer than Doctor anticipated. She was born on April 28, 1932, the daughter of the late James
William and Zona (Fogle) Wall. She graduated from Kinsman High School in 1950.
Jane found her soulmate and married Allan in 1952. She and Allan created a life full of love in
Hubbard, Ohio. They celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary this past July.
She was a dedicated employee of both North Eastern Telephone Company and Ohio Edison
Company until retiring in 1998 from their Niles Generating Plant. Jane was an active member of
the First Presbyterian Church of Hubbard. Her generosity touched the lives of so many of those
in and out of her congregation.
Jane always prioritized others. There was not a birthday or occasion in which a card was not
sent or a phone call was not made. Jane was also an avid sports fan. You could often find her in
headphones listening to a big Cleveland Indians hit or that right at the buzzer basket made by a
Cavs player. She enjoyed hosting friends for luncheons and card games. When the games were
over and the cards cleaned, she enjoyed gardening and spending time amongst her Dahlias.
Besides her husband, Allan Creed, Jane is survived by her son Scott Creed of Imperial, PA, and
two daughters, Sherri Ausbon of Apex, N.C., and Sandra Williams of Boardman, OH. She was
blessed with six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren with a fifth making an appearance
this April and will carry on her name. She was involved in each of their lives in such a special
