McGOURTY, Greta A. 85, of Milton, Scituate and Naples, FL, passed away on May 20th. Her four children feel very blessed that they were able to be at her side during her final days. She was pre-deceased by the love of her life, her husband, John McGourty, parents Edward and Catherine Greer, and her brother Eddie. Greta leaves her sister Jayne Rooney, as well as her four children Sharon (Joe) Giampietro, Susan (Joe) Braccio, John (Suzanne) McGourty and Eddie (Marcy) McGourty. Greta is survived by her fourteen beloved grandchildren and three great grandchildren, and an extraordinary group of cousins, nieces, nephews and close friends, whom she loved deeply. Greta was a woman of many talents and interests. She was a successful real estate agent. She loved to paint, interior decorate, play golf and tennis. She was a lover of music, singing and all things beautiful. She was charitable to those in need. She was the president of the Ladies of Charity at the Carney Hospital. She was on the board of directors at the Boston School for the Deaf, and a member of the VIA, an organization for people with special needs. Most of all, Greta will be remembered for her boundless enthusiasm for life and her compassion for each and every person she met. She had a thirst for life that never wavered and the ability to deeply connect with any person who made her acquaintance. Her bigger than life personality will be deeply missed.
