MERCER, Greta (nee Shields) February 1, 1936 - February 2, 2014 It is with sad & heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Greta on the morning of February 2, 2014. Predeceased by her husband Jack in 2003. Survived by her sisters Catherine Mercer and Margaret Burnett. She will be dearly missed by her 2 children; son Peter and wife Kym, granddaughters Shelby and Savannah; daughter Kaye and husband René, grandson Colwyn, and granddaughter Brynne. Born and raised in Liverpool, England , Greta and Jack emigrated to Canada in 1957 to start their new life where they found and fell in love with North Vancouver. We would like to thank all the staff and care givers at Capilano Care Center where Greta spent the last two and a half years of her life receiving such compassionate care. We would also like to thank the doctors and nurses at Lions Gate Hospital for their dedicated care over the years. A celebration of Greta's life will be held Saturday, February 8 at 4 pm at the Royal Canadian Legion (118 Branch), 123 West 15th Street, North Vancouver. Donations can be made to Lions Gate Hospital in Greta's memory. 'The hearts that love you dearly are the ones who won't forget. None on earth can take your place and our memories will never fade...."
