Florence - Hettie Mae Greer, beloved mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, passed away at home on July 31st, 2023 after a valiant 2 1/2-year battle with cancer. Hettie Mae was born in Kansas City, Kansas July 30, 1939, to Otto James and Imogene (Jones) Steinman.
She shared a wonderful, and adventurous, life partnership of 63 years with Harold Lee Greer, whom she married in 1957. Harold Lee pre-deceased her in September of 2020. As a Forest Service wife, Hettie lived with her family in many mountain towns through the years, and enjoyed many canoe and sailboat rides, picnics, looking for driftwood on lake beaches and camping. Art projects were a big part of her life, and she loved to work on acrylic and watercolor paintings, as well as crafts such as sewing, knitting and crochet.
When her two children were grown, Hettie fulfilled a life-long dream and started Nursing School, achieving her LPN. She worked in various hospitals, and a medical clinic until Harold was transferred to Missoula in 1986, and they settled in Florence, Montana. After Harold Lee retired from the Forest Service, they began to travel the Western States by motorcycle along with cherished friends and family.
She is survived by her two daughters, Falena Greer of Florence and Nory Greer-Guitar (Steve) of Spring Creek, Nevada, three grandchildren, six great grandchildren, brother William Steinman, and sister Melissa Howell. She was preceded in death by her parents Otto and Imogene Steinman.
Hettie was a wonderful mother, deeply loving and of great spiritual strength and integrity. She will be greatly missed.
In accordance with her wishes, no services will be held. The family will celebrate her life privately.
