Cretens Fund in the Community Foundation. “Dr. Cretens was an avid reader and was a frequent visitor to the library,” Williams said. “She had a great interest in many subjects and made reading and learning a lifelong quest. Parrotta stated, “Dr. Cretens was an outstanding citizen of Gladstone and much of her philanthropy is directed to her hometown. For that we are grateful.”
