Kathryn Wilson Creason of Pittsboro N.C. died peacefully at home on Tuesday, January 19, 2021 at the age of 74.

Kathryn was born in Miami, Florida on September 2, 1946 to the late Paul Wilson and Katherine Wilson. She received her bachelor’s degree at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and master’s degree in library science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her love of books led to a long-time career with Wake County Public Libraries as a reference librarian with exceptional knowledge of Southern fiction.

Following retirement, she became an active volunteer with the Friends of the Chatham Chatham Community Library, publishing their newsletter until her decline. She also became a passionate quilter, forming close friendships and loving memories with her circle of quilters and providing family with treasured keepsakes.
