With the love of her family in her heart, Greta Myrtle (née Smith) Hoegy, passed away at Listowel Memorial Hospital on Wednesday, December 4, 2019. In her 93 years among us Greta was a source of love and caring in the circle of her family and friends. She was a petite woman who lived life with a large sense of determination and stamina. Greta and Lavern were partners in life, blessed with 66 years of marriage, farming and raising their family together. In faith, we trust they are now reunited again in eternal life. Greta was a dedicated member of the Ladies Orange Benevolent Association.
Greta will be lovingly remembered by her children Brenda and Jim Nicholson, Wayne and Linda Hoegy, Yvonne and Bryan Coultes, Maureen and Gary Friedman, Douglas and Mary Dianne Hoegy and Lyle and Mary Hoegy. Cherishing memories of a much loved grandmother are 19 grandchildren and 29 great grandchildren. Left to reminisce days gone by are sister-in-law Leotta MacKenzie and many nieces and nephews.
Along with her husband Lavern (2015), Greta is predeceased by siblings Amos Smith, Ormal Smith, Lyla Smith, Lillian and Lester Green and siblings-in-law Wilber and Norma Hoegy, Evelyn and Gordon Kleber and Edwin MacKenzie.
Honouring Greta’s wishes cremation has taken place. Visitation will take place at Haskett Funeral Home, 87 Goderich Street West, Seaforth on Tuesday, December 10, 2019, from 9:45-10:45 a.m. followed by a memorial service commencing at 11a.m. A reception will follow at Branch 156, Seaforth Legion, 123 Main Street South, Seaforth. Interment will take place in McKillop Cemetery at a later date.
