Greta Susan Nelson

December 15, 1920-November 11, 2013

The family of Greta Susan Nelson(nee Mawhinny) would like to announce her passing from this life into another one much better, because she is now with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, whom she has been anxiously waiting to finally see.

Greta left us on November 11, Remembrance Day, which will give us another reason to honor this special day. She would have been 93 years old on December 15 and still young and beautiful as always. She was a tough woman; hardworking and very serious about most things in life, but she loved her family and her church family, and most of all the Lord. Anything to do with spiritual things was her passion and joy.

Greta was the last to pass away out of 8 children, even though she was the 2nd eldest. She was a very loving and caring wife and mother of 3 daughters; Maureen Aiello (Osoyoos, BC), Fran Scott (Terrace, BC), and Lillian Beaumont (Campbell River, BC). Great was also grandmother of 9, great-grandmother of 20, and great-great-grandmother of 6. Our 5 generations just ended.

If I told you in detail who she was and who she became, I would need the entire section of this paper; anyone who knew her would agree.

I can’t imagine life without her and can only believe the pain and loneliness will get less with each passing day, because I’m told it will. She will be terribly missed and never forgotten.

We love you, Grams. Enjoy your time in the presence and arms of Jesus. I know you’re no longer suffering and you are now continually filled with joy and peace. Until we see you again, and we will. You can be sure of that.

No open service at this time. A private tea will be held in her honor. In lieu of flowers, please give to the CR Hospital, who put in many hours caring for Greta.

Your condolences will be approved within one business day. You will need a valid Facebook account. Please email us if you have any questions.
