In 1968, she married Ed and later welcomed the births of two children, Krista and Michael. Greta and Ed were inseparable and their lives were filled with happiness and adventure. They lived in Bishop’s Falls, NL, Riverview, NB, Lower Sackville, NS, and Sydney, NS where she made friends and worked at Scotiabank. She loved planning adventures like trips up to the camp, cross country skiing, walks with friends, snowmobiling, kayaking, and travelling. She enjoyed lots of activities including darts, cards, crafts, gardening, aquafit, shopping, and of course playing with her grandkids. She was the instigator of countless gatherings, dances, and dress up fun with close friends and family. She will be greatly missed…
