Greta Perlee, retired elementary and middle school teacher, passed away on December 22 at the age of 94 with family at her side. She taught in the Northport-East Northport School District for twenty two years at Norwood Ave, Middleville Jr. High and the High school. Greta was pre-deceased by her husband Harold and is survived by six children and their partners; Bill and Lorah, Bruce and Jeannette, Alison and Pete, Alisa and Jim, Brooks and Jane, and Dana and Dennis and twelve grandchildren.
Greta went back to college as a mother of six to become a teacher, and taught in the Northport-East Northport School District for twenty two years. Upon retirement Greta continued to be active in the community – playing golf, attending events at the library, and socializing with her retired teacher friends. She loved reading, traveling with her husband and long-time friends, golf, word games (and winning), chocolate, white wine, and spending time with her family.
There will be a celebration of Greta’s life at a later date. Her family ask that donations honoring Greta be made in memory of her husband, Harold, to the Alzheimer’s Association at www.alz.org
