Greg and Regina

One of our most powerful interviews during our stay on Nantucket was between Greg Creedon and his mother, Regina Keightley. Both life-long Nantucketers, the recording took place in the house where Regina was born and in which Greg grew up. Regina told Greg about the island when she was a child, how she passed along notes to boys on the school bus via the driver, when she and some friends snuck into a military service club, and why her father, a former school superintendent, was such an influence on her and her love of teaching.

  • Peter,

    I just saw this. I was one of the Facilitators at your grandmother’s house that May. It was clear from the moment we stepped in the door how much she was loved, and how much she loved her family and the community of Nantucket. Even from her bed she was vibrant and full of humor. Please send my extremely belated condolences to Greg, and to the rest of your family.

    Sincerely,
    Sarah Geis
