Brenda “Sharron” Nesbett

Brenda Sharron Nesbett, 73, of Little Rock, Arkansas, entered into the arms of her Lord and Savior at Arkansas Heart Hospital Thursday, May 25, 2023. 

She was born February 10, 1950, in El Dorado, Arkansas, to Elsie Bounds Creech and Clifford E. Creech, Senior.

Sharron was a wonderful wife, mother, and businesswoman.  Together with her husband, James Nesbett, Junior, they owned and operated Nesbett and Creech Tire Service in Arkadelphia and Hot Springs for forty years.

Sharron was raised in Bossier City, Louisiana, until age fifteen, when her father moved the family to Camden, Arkansas, to open Creech Tire Service, which existed for over fifty years. 

Sharron graduated from Harmony Grove High School in Camden in 1968 with honors.  After high school, she attended and finished beauty school.  From there, she attended Henderson State University, where she graduated in 1973 with a BSE in education. 

Sharron had a passion for traveling.  Along with her husband, James, they were awarded several trips to European countries, as well as countries in The Caribbean and The West Indies by The Goodyear Tire Company.

Her greatest joy by far was her motorhomes of which they had a total of six in twenty years.  Together, they saw all the states and logged a total of over 175,000 miles.

Sharron was preceded in death by her parents, Clifford and Elsie Creech, and her two brothers, Clifford E. Creech, Junior and Billy Ray Creech, all of Camden, Arkansas.
