Long-time Canadian Press food writer Judy Creighton died last week. She was 81 years old.
In the wake of her death, journalists and culinary tastemakers are calling Ms. Creighton a “beacon” who burst the confines of the “women’s section” to bring meat-and-potatoes issues to the front pages of Canada’s newspapers.
Ms. Creighton died on May 4 of pneumonia complications at an assisted living facility in Burlington, Ont., according to her family.
Her obit recently appeared in the Globe and Mail. You can read it in full by clicking here.
