Greta Ellen Marie Rasmussen

Greta Ellen Marie Rasmussen was born on February 3, 1921 in Arhus, Denmark.  At the age of 2 she made the 10 day voyage to America.  She lived a long healthy life and blessed the many people who were fortunate enough to call her their friend.  She loved sewing, book club, her garden and above all else, her family.  On May 12, 2010 she breathed her last earthly breath and went home to be with Jesus.
Over the last few years she often told us that when the time came she was ready to leave this world to make her home in heaven.  She was a beautiful, graceful, intelligent woman.  On the whir of a hummingbirds wings, in the scent of the cedar trees on a warm summer day, in the laugh of the great grandchildren she leaves behind, she is remembered and loved.  She taught us how to love and accept, how to appreciate a good book, how to entertain and cook delicious meals.  She was the wife of Robert Logan Prevette and later in life John Oprea as well as mother to 3 children and Grammy to 5 grandchildren and 3 great grand children.  If she could be summed up in one word it would be….BEAUTIFUL.  To be absent from her body is to be present with the Lord.  We look forward to being reunited with her again one day.
