On January 5, 1948, Creta married her high-school sweetheart, Jack Dean Robinson, in the Manti Temple. They chose to make Richfield, Utah, their home.

After, Jack’s death on March 13 2008, Creta continued her loving service and kindness for as long as her health allowed. She enjoyed waterskiing until the age of 80 and golfed until her health would no longer permit it. Creta’s greatest love after her family was Major League baseball and the Yankees. Creta had a strong devotion to her savior, and always lived her life in honor of him.
