Greta Lou Parsons, age 89 of Lowell, passed peacefully on Sunday, February 18, 2024. She was preceded in death by her husband, Clark R. Parsons, her parents, Edgar and Nettie Nash, five brothers, Howard (Josephine), Raymond (Luella), Forrest (Betty), Gordon (Beverly) and Carl, and one sister, Vivian. She is survived by her children, Angie (Dave) Young, Cheryl (Brian) Doyle, Merlene (Michael) Baker, Jeff (Kristin) Parsons, Carmen (Matt) Tawney; 15 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; sisters-in-law Carole (George) Anderson and Elaine Nash; many nieces and nephews. Greta was a sweet, gentle, beautiful soul who was called home to her heavenly reward surrounded by her family. She will be remembered as a loving, caring, selfless, faith-filled, lady whose life was full of goodness and service to others. Even throughout her last few years with dementia, she was still able to share the love of God with others through her sweet smile and a sparkle of joy in her eyes. Her faith and family were everything to her, including close friends, Donna Bieri, Phyllis Bieri, Marilyn Cahoon, Ann Mulder, Judy Shehigian, Carolyn King, and Ann Dimmick-Rife. She was an active member of the United Methodist Church of Lowell, especially the UMW and mission outreach. She worked as a nurse at Blodgett Hospital in Grand Rapids for many years while raising her family. She was involved in 4-H in her youth and supported her children and grandchildren in all their 4H projects. We are especially grateful for the many wonderful caregivers at Maple Ridge Manor and Emmanuel Hospice who helped Greta live the last few years of her life as fully and as comfortably as possible.

Visitation will be held at the Lowell United Methodist Church 621 E. Main St., Friday, February 23, 10 a.m. Memorial service will be held at the church following at 11:00 a.m. Contributions may be made to the Lowell United Methodist Church or Emmanuel Hospice.
