GUENTHER--Greta Thyssen.

Her family and friends mourn the passing of Greta Thyssen Guenther, mother, widow, actress, painter, and beauty, who was celebrated for her seductive allure as a glamour girl in 1960's Hollywood and 1970's New York. Born in Hareskovby, Denmark, Greta came to Hollywood soon after being crowned Miss Denmark of 1952. She stared in film and television roles before marrying mining engineer Theodore Roy Guenther and retiring from acting to raise their daughter Genevieve Juliette. In retirement Greta found success as a painter who intriguingly combined representational portraiture and surrealistic allegory. Deeply loving, fiercely intelligent, and filled with appreciation for beauty and joy, Greta will be profoundly missed.
