Mary L. Creekmore, 56, of Drexel Hill, a well-known figure in the Philadelphia paralegal community, died Tuesday, Aug. 5, of cancer in the Vitas Hospice at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital, Darby.
Ms. Creekmore was a past president of the Philadelphia Association of Paralegals and a board member of the National Federation of Paralegal Associations.
She graduated from St. Joseph's University and later returned to her alma mater to teach paralegal ethics. "Ethics was her passion," said Glenn Bennett, her companion of 21 years.
She worked as a paralegal for the Radnor law firm Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP, for 12 years, and before that, spent 11 years working for the law firm Cozen O'Connor.
