Donatas Vladas Greb died peacefully at home on October 28, 2019 at the age of 97. He is survived by his wife of 68 years, Marian; his children Dona (Gary Novack), Christine (Christopher Smith) and Donatas Greb (Marion); grandchildren Rebecca (Monie Hussain), Philip Novack, Blake Smith (Jae), Nora Smith, Alexandra Greb, and Margaux Greb; great-grandchildren Alexander, Robert, and Dot Hussain.
Donatas was a long-time resident of Oakland and Piedmont. He was also a member of St. Theresa’s Catholic Church. He was proud of his Lithuanian heritage and always ready to share a story of his early years. We were truly blessed to have had such a wonderful “Opa” in our lives and will miss his blue eyes and constant smile.
A special thanks to Hiva and Ofa for their loving care of our father during his last months.
Services will be at St. Theresa’s Catholic Church, Thursday, November 7 at 10:30am followed by Interment at St. Mary’s Cemetery.
