Obituary: Greta J. Falvey

Greta J. Falvey
Greta J. (Johnson) Falvey, of Hull and Naples, Fla., died peacefully Feb. 15 at home, surrounded by loved ones. Originally from Dorchester, where she raised her family, Mrs. Falvey worked for the Gillette Co. in South Boston for many years. She lived by the water most of her life and could often be found sitting at the beach enjoying a good mystery. She was proud to take an active role in the daily lives of each of her grandchildren. 
Quick of wit, warm of heart, she will be remembered for her generous love, sense of humor, and selflessness.
Beloved wife of the late William F. Falvey, she was the devoted mother of William Falvey, of Quincy; Bobby Falvey and his wife, Sheila, of Virginia; Paul Falvey and his wife, Christine, of Hanover; KarenAnn Vardaro and her husband, Robert, of Hingham; and John Falvey, of Hull. She was the cherished Nana of Erin, Mary, Cameron, Hannah, Evan, Elise, and great-grandson Henry. The sister of the late Paul Johnson, she is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews.
Her family offers special thanks to her hospice angels – Teddi, Amanda, Kristin, Barbara, and Elizabeth – for the compassion and dignity they showed during the last few weeks.
Burial was private. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Hospice of the South Shore, 30 Reservoir Park Dr., Rockland, MA 02370. For online condolences, visit
