Gretchen Halliday Obituary
Gretchen Halliday

AGE: 84 • Brick

On November 6, the world lost an amazing mother, friend and bright light. Gretchen Halliday, age 84 of Brick, NJ, joined her husband, George Halliday, in Heaven. She was an angel on earth and continues to be so in Heaven and will be missed and remembered forever.

Gretchen is survived by her daughter, Wendy Halliday Liles, her Granddaughter, Savannah Liles, her step children, Bonnie Greer, Sandy Halliday and Glenn Halliday, her step grandchildren, and her "adopted" daughter, Linda Rabbitt. Gretchen made a difference in so many lives, was generous and caring and always smiling. Her blue eyes lit up a room. She was a singer and an actress and was known to burst out in song for any occasion. She met the love of her life, George, on a cruise in April of 1968 and the two were married in June of the same year, just two months later. George and Gretchen were the epitome of true love and were married until his death in 2000. They are together again, leaving a void in the world that will never be filled.

The world was a better place for having had her in it. She loved with her whole heart, lived life to its fullest and taught her children the true meaning of honor, integrity, loyalty, compassion, strength and unconditional love.

A celebration of her life will be held at a private home in New Jersey on June 22, 2018 for family and friends.
