On June 12th, a beautiful, sunny afternoon, Greta Rae, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, friend, aunt, nurse, realtor and card shark, passed away peacefully at the age of 80 to be reunited with her beloved, Jim. Greta, always a strongly independent spirit loved by many, will be greatly missed. Many thanks to Drs. Winsby, MacGregor and Saiger for their great kindness, and to the many dedicated palliative care nurses, whose loving care made mom's last days more peaceful; you are all truly angels on earth. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Victoria Hospice Society are suggested.
