Athena Creswell

Athena Eldridge Creswell, 65, of Belmont, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on 11/9/2020.  She was the daughter of the late Everette and Evelyn Eldridge.  Her life was filled with many adventures as she enjoyed traveling both far and near.  During these adventures she often enjoyed searching for gems, minerals, and fossils, a love that she enjoyed sharing with her friends and family.  When she was not on an adventure she used her creative skills to sew and knit.  Creating many treasured items for her family.  Recently she found the greatest joy in spending time with her grandchildren and passing down some of her loves to them and working with Clt_Bongo_Babies, a group focused on bringing music to toddlers created by her daughter.  She is survived by her two children Benjamin Webb, and Dara Buck and her Husband Nolan, along with her grandchildren Atlas and Jackson.  As well as her loved aunt Berline Garrison, and her brothers Dennis Eldridge and Greg Eldridge and their families.  A graveside service will be held at 1pm on Saturday 11/14 at Evergreen cemetery followed by a celebration of life at Ray Nathan's BBQ (old Graham's fish camp)at 2pm.
