Greta married Hartly Kruger in 1953 and had 3 children Kai, Don and Jan. Her son Don preceded her in death in 2011. She has 5 grandchildren, Katie, Mitch, Ben, Paul and Pam. Greta chose to become sober in 1982. That journey led her to many good friends through AA as well as her work as a chemical dependency counselor at Residence XII in Kirkland, Washington. In 2009 she received the Ann Nichols award for her dedication and commitment for helping women and their families in treatment. She was very proud of her sobriety. She had a wonderful sense of humor, loved to play cards, loved to watch sports and loved jazz music. She especially loved her kids and grandkids.


We will be celebrating Greta on Saturday September 30th at 1:00pm at The Northshore Senior Center - Health and Wellness Center in Bothell. (Across the street from The Senior Center) 10212 E Riverside Drive, Bothell 98011


God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
