Livingston nurse, husband found dead

LIVINGSTON, TX (KTRE) -

LIVINGSTON, TX (KTRE) - A woman who worked at Memorial Health System in Livingston as a nurse was found dead along with her husband at their home Monday morning.

Capt. Steve Green of the Liberty County Sheriff's Office said the bodies were found around 10 a.m. after a co-worker of Lillian Renee Creel, 50, and Creel's daughter went to the residence after they were concerned after she had not shown up to work.

Green would not comment on if a weapon caused the deaths and said an autopsy has been ordered on the bodies.

Memorial Hospital Director of Marketing Yana Ogletree confirmed Creel was an employee with the Livingston branch and worked on and off for the hospital for the past 20 years. She was last employed as an orthopedic nurse coordinator and was the house supervisor.

"Renee worked as a registered nurse and in talking to her co-workers she will be best remembered for her outgoing personality and 'can-do' spirit," Ogletree said. "She was a wonderful mentor and exceptional caregiver."

Ogletree said the hospital had contacted local clergy to come to the hospital to offer prayer and counseling. The employee assistance program had also been contacted to provide grief counseling.

Creel and her husband, Jimmy Creel, 64, lived in the Hoop and Holler subdivision in northern Liberty County, Green said.
