Please share a memory of Greta to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Greta M. (Wilson) Gardner passed away peacefully in her sleep on September 24, 2021. She was born on Jun 13, 1930, in Scarsdale, Nova Scotia, daughter of Ainslie W. Wilson and Cora B. (Dunn) Wilson. Greta is survived by her five loving children, Kendall B. Worthley, Jr. and his wife Barbara of Oakland, Lynn M. Warman and her husband Brian of Unity, Fern L. Ward and her husband Lawrence of Belfast, Stacy A. Venable and her husband Chad of Newtown Square, Pennsylvania, Lori J. Gardner and her partner Kevin Redmond of Sidney; ten grandchildren: Heather Corson, Todd Worthley, Chrissy Hunter, Letitia Slimm, Tabatha Littlefield, Stanley Ward, Eric Warman, Karen Waddell, Ashley Spangler, and Phoebe Venable; 19 great-grandchildren: Brittany Doucette, Victoria Corson, Aricka Corson, Amber Worthley, Rachel Worthley, Serentity Worthley, Christian Hunter, Amber Hunter, Isaac Hunter, Lori Ward, Ezekiel Littlefield, Daniel Littlefield, Odelia Littlefield, Zebadiah Littlefield, Azalia Littlefield, Edward Warman, Ernest Warman, Eleanor Warman, and Esther Warman; and six great-great grandchildren: Luk Dexter, Mia White, Blair White, John Stecher, Thia Stecher, and Paityn Wagner. In addition to her parents, Greta was predeceased by her beloved husband Stanley F. Gardner, her brother, Harold Wilson, her grandson, Steven Reynolds, and her stepsons Philip E. Gardner and Joel S. Gardner. Family was Greta’s greatest joy. She was a devoted wife and the best mother in the world. She loved to hold and rock her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and sing to them. Her great-grandchildren affectionately called her “Candy Grammy” because she always had treats on hand when they visited her. She radiated joy and enjoyed all life’s simple pleasures. She loved to laugh, and her laugh will echo into eternity in our hearts and memories. A memorial gathering will be held at Riposta Funeral Home in Belfast on Saturday, October 2nd from 10 am to 12 noon. Burial will be at the old Veteran’s Memorial Cemetery in Augusta on October 4th at 1 pm. Memories and condolences may be shared at Proverbs 31:25-31 Strength and honor are her clothing; She shall rejoice in time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, And on her tongue is the law of kindness. She watches over the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her: “Many daughters have done well, But you excel them all.” Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, And let her own works praise her in the gates.
