Jenne Betty Greger

August 1, 1929 – March 20, 2020
Born at home in Suameer, Friesland on August 1, 1929 named Joukje Bintje Teunissen. After the hardships of the war, Jenne loved sailing her sailboat on the local canals and, in winter, skating on those same canals. Jenne graduated from high school with honors, fluent in five languages before immigrating to Canada with her parents and six younger siblings in 1949.
Working in Edmonton she met and married Harold Ruben Greger on May 4, 1951 starting their family with Gordon, then Ronald, who sadly died in infancy, and Randall. They moved to BC in 1956 where, later, Margot was born.
After many of their health issues were resolved with nutrition, Jenne and Harold opened the Pantry Natural Foods in 1974. Jenne was an active environmentalist concerned about the health of the planet as well as the people on it. In 1989 they retired to Galena Bay where Jenne enjoyed gardening organically, making wine, reading and spending time with family. Jenne enjoyed her last years in her house by the lake at the end of Sagacious Road.
Jenne was predeceased by Harold in 2009 and she passed away peacefully at home on March 20, 2020. She is survived by her three children and many grand and great grandchildren.
The family wishes to thank Shawn for her excellent care and companionship these last few years.
