Three Rock Hill Residents Deemed Ageless-Remarkable St. Louisans
The honorees will be recognized at the 10th anniversary Ageless-Remarkable gala Nov. 11.
You know what they say: Some things get better with age.
Three Rock Hill residents were named one better. St. Andrew's Resources for Seniors is hosting its 10th annual Ageless-Remarkable gala Nov. 11 at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch.
Alice Creamer, Bill Creamer and Glenn Sheffield are the Rock Hill honorees joining 19 other 75+ "extraordinary seniors" at the Wells Fargo-sponsored event. More than 240 seniors have been recognized for making the most of their prime time to "travel, continue careers and embark on new ones, and lend their time and talents to their favorite charities," according to the St. Andrew's release.
Congratulations to these Rock Hill seniors. The release included their bios below:
Alice Creamer, 81, has volunteered at St. Mary’s Health Center for over 13 years, where her duties have included working in the gift shop, assisting cancer patients in the infusion center and helping to solicit volunteers to make prayer shawls. Outside St. Mary’s, Alice tutors first-graders in the reading program at her church, has assisted with Special Olympics outings and inspires her friends and neighbors to stay physically fit by encouraging them to accompany her on her almost-daily 10-mile walks.
Bill Creamer, 79, is a self-employed financial consultant who is also committed to serving his community. As member of the Clayton Optimist Club for more than 40 years, Bill has served as president and also leads many of the organization’s fundraising and grant-making activities. Bill is also active with the Special Olympics and his church, where he sings in the choir, serves as a Eucharist Minister and delivers communion to the homebound.
Glenn Sheffield, 75, is best known as a former two-term mayor of Webster Groves and a former Webster Groves Citizen of the Year, but her volunteer contributions to more than a dozen nonprofit and civic organizations also make her a community standout. Her efforts include serving as the current chair of the Arts & Education Council, and president of the Advisory Board of Smith College and the National Council of Social Work at Washington University. She also serves on a number of boards, including the Repertory Theatre, Women of Achievement, Opera Theatre and the Education Board of John Burroughs School.
