June 23, 1928 - March 14, 2018
Greta J. Wagner Slagle of Delta Township went to be with the Lord March 14, 2018 surrounded by her loving family. Greta was born June 23, 1928 in Lake Odessa, Michigan to the late LeRoy W. and Zelpha F. (Stout) Clark. Greta graduated from Lake Odessa High School Class of 1945 and continued her education at Michigan State University where she received her Masters and Educational Specialist Degrees. Greta enjoyed a rewarding career as an educator at the Grand Ledge, Waverly and Eaton Intermediate Schools. She started teaching kindergarten, elementary and Title I programs in Grand Ledge and Waverly School Districts. Greta then worked with the Eaton Intermediate School District as a School Psychologist. She enjoyed golfing for many years, especially during her years in Florida. She also loved playing her organ, which holds especially fond memories for her grandchildren. She shared her enjoyment of sewing, knitting, and cross-stitch with her family and had built extensive information on the family’s genealogy. Greta loved spending time with her grandchildren at all ages, and devoted much time and love to those relationships. She is survived by her children, Gregory (Bernice) Wagner, Douglas (Annette) Wagner, Carol Wagner; step-children, Barry Slagle, Timothy (Connie) Slagle and Jonathan (Anne) Slagle; grandchildren, Corey, Stefani, Jacob, Benjamin, Blair, Laurel, Zachary, Lauran, AdriAnne, Elizabeth, Christopher, Melissa and Alie, and great grandson, Leo. Greta was preceded in death by her parents; husband, William Wagner; grandson, Aaron Gregory Wagner; sister, Frances Marie McDiarmid and second husband, Charles Slagle. Visitation will be Saturday March 17th from 5-8:00 p.m. at the Holihan-Atkin-Barclay Funeral Home, Grand Ledge and Monday at the church from 10-11:00 a.m. A funeral service will be held Monday, March 19, 2018, 11:00 a.m. at the Immanuel Lutheran Church, Grand Ledge with Pastor Chuck Foerster, officiating. Interment will follow at Oakwood Cemetery. Because Greta was blessed with a long and full life filled with many interests, the family welcomes contributions to a charity of the donor's choice, with possible areas of focus on education, Michigan State University, genealogy, medical areas, hospice, and nursing.
