Charlotte Greber, a longtime resident of Summerland, celebrated her 100th birthday on April 3 at a private function at the Dr. Andrew Pavilion.

Her son Gordon Greber and daughter Rita (Hutchinson), with their families and close friends, attended the event and honoured Charlotte for a life of service to her family, her church and her community.

Charlotte was married to Walter Greber and enjoyed 64 years of marriage prior to his death in 1999.

The Grebers moved to Trout Creek in 1948 and had their house built at Johnston Street and Fir Avenue. Walter worked from 1952 to 1971. Charlotte worked at Walters Packing House in lower Summerland in the early 1950s and later at the Co-op Packing House off Jubilee later that decade.

They also worked in the local orchards for many years.

Those who visit the Dr. Andrew Pavilion will often be treated to Charlotte playing her favourite hymns on the piano. Special thanks to Rick Gay, pastor of Summerland Alliance Church and her pastor for the past 17 years for attending the celebration and praying a special blessing on her life.
