My deepest sympathy to Gretas family and friends. I met Greta in 1978 or 1979 when she and Greg were doing youth and music ministry at St. Marys. She was an amazing, kind, sweet, and talented person whose friendship meant so much to me. She sang and played guitar at my wedding, barefoot I might add! A beautiful soul. She will be missed very much.

Thinking of the family with sympathy and prayers. I have fond memories of Greta (and Greg too) from attending Ayersville school with them. They were both great people. So sorry for your loss.
