Julia Credle Obituary, Death-The demise of Julia Credle, who had been a part of our community for a very long time, is something that we must report with a deep sense of loss. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Salem College and her Master of Arts degree from East Carolina University. She was born in Windsor and reared in Ahoskie, North Carolina.
The majority of Julia’s career was spent as a language arts teacher for students in the fifth and sixth grades. She began her teaching career in Durham, North Carolina, and later moved back to Ahoskie and Windsor to continue her profession. Julia did not return to ECU until she was 50 years old to complete her last postgraduate degree there. As a member of the Delta Kappa Gamma teacher’s sorority, as a board member of the Museum of the Albemarle, and as a board member of the Bertie County Department of Social Services, Julia was actively involved in a variety of volunteer activities across our county.
Julia wanted to continue teaching after retiring from her 35-year career as a teacher in the North Carolina Public Schools; thus, she became a docent at Historic Hope in order to fulfill this goal. For the past 26 years, Julia has been a devoted and extremely well-liked docent. Her tours were renowned for being amusing as well as instructive, and guests would often arrange their visits to match with her work schedule because of this reputation.
When Julia was 84 years old, she retired from her job as a history teacher at Historic Hope and relocated to Savannah, Georgia, to be closer to her daughter. Julia had spent her whole career working at Historic Hope. When Mary resigned from her position as a docent at Historic Hope, the Historic Hope Foundation honored her service by planting two chestnut trees across from the mansion. We shall miss Julia very much since she was the kind of person who could make everyone laugh and share a tale.
