Greta was a beautiful, resilient, kind and brave woman. She always had a smile and amazing hair. We knew each other for over 20 years. Every single time our paths crossed, it was all laughing and joy. I will miss her. Sending her to the loving arms of her Heavenly Father today with nothing but wonderful memories

Greta will be sorely missed. It was honour to have gotten to know her through her shopping at my store. She was a truly bright light, and even seeing her name in the appointment book made me smile in anticipation of seeing her bubbly self. Forever humble, I don’t believe she knew the amazing impact she made on everyone she came in touch with. Greta, I will miss you; and know when I look at the stars overhead, that I will see you, shining on me still!

I have known Greta for nearly 12 years and while we rarely worked together directly, she always kept us laughing the times we would spend together. She is already missed by her Coast family.
