Greta Mary Steed
Greta Mary Steed was born to Leif and Mary Øvstedal, in Vancouver, BC on March 3, 1955.
She moved many times between Norway and the United States and eventually settled in Shoreline, Washington. Greta earned her RN degree from Shoreline Community College, married, and had four children. She raised her family in San Jose, CA, and Bellevue, WA.
Greta was a strong woman who strived to enjoy each day, despite numerous health obstacles. She always stayed positive, telling people how well she was doing, and never let herself be limited. She was active in Daughters of Norway, Alter Guild, and the band The Metrognomes where she played violin.
She died on April 24, 2014 at 59 years old. Greta is survived by her mother Mary Liv Øvstedal, brother Terry Øvstedal, husband Bob, four children Michael, Eric (Maria), Christina (Michael), and Victoria (Kasper), and three and a half grandchildren.
