    She was very Loving inside with a toughness outside. From a time when educated women had to be appropriately so. She dearly loved her kids and their families. She would brag about them ALL. I LOVED how she did so in a way it not being at all inappropriate. An Excellent listener with the heart of a Viking Warrior inside ! A person that made you proud having in your family! I do miss my dear Aunt Greta ! She would listen to me and help me at any time that I called for it !
