Neta Elizabeth (Jodrey) Croft, 87 of Greenwich, formally of Greenfield, passed away on Monday, June 3, 2024 with family by her side. She was a daughter of the late Burton and Elizabeth (Brown) Jodrey. Neta came into the nursing profession by chance, and it certainly suited her nurturing and caring personality. She trained at the sanitorium in Kentville and then spent most of her nursing career at the EKM Hospital. After "retiring" many times, she worked in various doctors’ offices in Wolfville and Port Williams. After she finally retired, she continued to give to others by knitting preemie baby hats and mittens and water bottle holders for chemo patients. Her latest project was knitting numerous lap blankets for radiation and cancer patients. She is survived by daughters, Maria-Jane (Dwayne) Croft, Hants Border; and Marlena (Paul) Walker, Halifax; son, Matthew (Darlene), Greenfield; four grandchildren who were the light of her life, Nicholas and Samantha (Caleb) Croft, Aidan and Colum Walker; several nieces and nephews; sister, Jean Power, Sackville; brother, Burnard, Truro; sister-in-law, Charlotte Croft, Greenfield, and brother-in-law, Wayne Wagner, Kentville. Neta was predeceased by her husband of 61 years, Malcolm "Mickey" Croft; brothers, David and Donald; sister, Hope Wagner, brother-in-law, William Power, sister-in-law Gladys Jodrey. The family would like to thank her doctors in Halifax and her palliative care from the amazing staff at the Valley Hospice as well as a very special thank you to Dr. Barbara Ross. Cremation has taken place and there will be no visitation, by request. The funeral service will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 15, 2024 in the Gaspereau Baptist Church, Pastor Ben Davidson and Reverend Gary Manthorne officiating.
