Greta Virginia Jeffcoat Thomsen
July 23, 1917 - July 7, 2006

Greta was born in a tent on her familyís homestead 'up Yellowjacket,' near Meeker, Colo. (The log cabin on the homestead was completed the following year.) She and her two sisters, Renora and Helen, and her brother, Myron, were raised on the family homestead, living off of the land, farming and ranching, until their late teen years. The Jeffcoat family was and still is, very close. Her parents were William and Bessie Clark Jeffcoat and her grandparents were William J. and Winona Clark, all of the Meeker and Craig, Colo. areas.
Greta told many stories of her adventures growing up riding the hills of Colorado on horseback where she rode six miles in the snow during winter to and from school every day. One of her teenage summers was spent riding on horseback to Pikes Peak (at least 100 miles away from Meeker 'as the crow flies'), camping along the way, with a group of young friends. Her father was the first one in Moffat County to have an automobile and was known to speed along the roads, which, of course, was inherited by Greta!
She followed her sisters and brother to Dixon, Calif., when she was 18 years old where her brother, Myron, was graduated from Dixon High School. In Dixon, Greta worked as a waitress at the 'Corner Cafť' across 'A' Street from Dawsonís. She met her husband, William F. 'Tige' Thomsen there and they were married in 1941. They had a son, Myron, who passed away in infancy in the flu epidemic during WWII. Her daughter, Pamela, was born a few years after the war ended and was graduated in 1969 from Dixon High School.
Greta enjoyed returning to Colorado with her family almost every year to help with the family harvest, where she would take pleasure in long horseback camping trips, or to just sit for hours and visit with her many relatives from the Craig and Meeker areas. She always attended the Clark family reunion, held annually in Meeker, Colo.
Greta and Tige enjoyed their motor home and would frequently go camping and traveling the country with their many friends. After Tige passed in May 2000, Greta followed the Firehouse Philharmonics on trips to Europe and Hawaii, which was a huge adventure for a gal who was born in a tent on a homestead in Meeker.
Greta was active in the Davis-Dixon Enchanted Hills Auxiliary, as well as the Dixon Lions Club (where Tige was a charter lifetime member). She was a long-time active member of Dixon Womenís Improvement Club. Greta was a 50-plus year member of the Dixon Community Church, where she was very active in Ladiesí Aid and could always be counted on to support church events and activities. Gretaís church was her extended family. She participated in every event. Greta would not miss a bible study class or Ladiesí Aid meeting. She was especially dedicated to the churchís outreach team and was their greeter at Sunday services. The youth group was also one of her favorites.
Greta was a lady who loved pretty clothes and pretty shoes and had closets full of them to prove it. That enabled her to fit right in when she joined the Dazzling Damsels of Dixonís Red Hat Society. She loved donning one of her red hats, a pretty purple outfit and a pair of beautiful shoes to join her friends for fun and laughter.
Gretaís love of horses and all animals was very strong and important to her and has passed down throughout her lineage; from her parents, to Greta, to her daughter, Pam, and her grandchildren, Blythe and Ethan. She never missed a chance to pet an animal or to kiss a soft nose.
Greta had many friends of all ages and children gravitated toward her. Greta was truly loved and will be deeply missed by her daughter and son-in-law, Pamela Thomsen Harnagel and Steven Harnagel, her grandchildren, Blythe Harnagel and Ethan Harnagel, her Colorado family, her church family and her many friends. Greta was preceded in death by her brother, Myron Jeffcoat of Craig, Colo.; her sisters, Renora Culverwell of Craig, Colo. and Helen Ducey of Craig, Colo.; and her husband, William F. 'Tige' Thomsen of Dixon, Calif.
A celebration of Gretaís life was held on her birthday, Sunday, July 23 at the Dixon Community Church. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be given to your favorite charity, the United States Pony Club (an organization for kids and horses, www.ponyclub.org) or the Dixon Community Church. Greta wishes to return home, to the homestead where she was born and had so much fun growing up, so that she can ride freely over the hills and mountains of her beloved Colorado.
